Updated on July 20, 2015

Manuka Honey Health Benefits

Honey is the nectar and saccharine exudation of plants, gathered, modified and stored as honey in the comb by honey bees. Honey may have different colours as it could be almost white amber or dark according to the plant source. Pure honey does not spoil. It keeps forever when kept under suitable condition.


Naturally, honey is a delicious wholesome health food. It is highly recommended for daily use on bread, tea, yam and so on. Honey can be used as food to build up the body. History has it that Pythagoras in his heyday persuaded his followers to eat much honey and bread and insisted that this be accompanied by vegetables and nuts. In 1944 a scientist named Heydak lived on honey and milk for a period of three months. He used to take 3 tablespoonful of honey and a quart of milk 3 times daily. And surprisingly he was found to maintain his normal weight and stamina. He had a slight rise in hemoglobin content of the blood.


Carbohydrate is the primary fuel of muscles and honey is the most easily digested form of carbohydrate and one which can be assimilated into the blood stream directly without going through any complicated processes of digestion. Just add 2 tablespoonful of honey to half glass of warm water. It is indeed an energy booster.


Daily intake of one tablespoonful of honey will improve hemoglobin formation. Better still, you may add fruit juice to honey and drink before going to bed. The resultant effect is that it purifies the blood by osmotic pressure, soothes the nerve for a sound and perfect sleep as it eases the tension.

It prevents ugly scars which show up after an attack of the ailment.
