Use of Honey

Honey is a tonic for the body as it has immense food values consisting of -

  • 28 minerals
  • 11 enzymes
  • 22 amino acids
  • 14 fatty acids

It has unique food values and medicinal properties. It is yellowish-brown in colour, semi- translucent, having viscid, saccharine substance, is too sweet. It's odour is aromatic, and taste sweet, acrid. Hippocrates believed that, if combined with other food, honey was health giving and nourishing.

Socrates believed that honey's use will prolong life and improve health. Honey can be preserved for an indefinite period, if it is pure and perhaps that may be the reason as to why the Greeks and Egyptians embalmed the dead bodies with honey.

Basic sugars remain constant in honey at 76% (approx.) since it contains surcose-20%, lebulose-40%. and dextrose-34%, destrine and gums range from 1.5% to 2%. Honey is digested with in twenty minutes of its intake. It is far more superior, as far sugar is concerned, to other forms of sugars as it is non-irritant to the digestive system, is sedative, nonirritant to kidneys, and easily assimilated by the body. It is the only food which is allowed, in ayurveda, to be used by the diabetics, Bacteria easily succumb to its anti-germ property. It is a great disinfectant and hastens cure of wounds, if applied locally.
