Honey- The Best Food For The Heart

Honey is one of the best gifts from nature to us. Honey is saturated with glucose and fructose. These sugars are in pre-digested forms, hence are readily assimilated in the blood stream.

If you need instantaneous energy, one that can be felt in about ten minutes, take a spoonful of honey. The glycogen passes rapidly into your blood stream and has the same effects as a meal.
There are sixteen types of sugar present in honey, but two are predominant, fructose and dextrose. This is one reason why honey acts so quickly in providing energy. Fructose and dextrose are described as pre-digested, and when taken into the body go to work straight away.

A glass of water with two teaspoons of honey at night induces sound sleep and brings clear motion on the next morning. The same drink taken on an empty stomach in the morning will works as an appetizer.

Honey is mild antiseptic. Its regular use strengthens both body and mind. It is recommended in cases of arteriosclerosis and weak hearts. Heart is a muscle and, like all our muscles, can be stimulated by honey which provides the energy needed by the muscles.

Honey also builds resistance to coughs, colds and many other ailments.
