Nutritious Natural Sweetener 

Honey is more than a sweetener. Along with natural carbohydrates, it contains 27 amino acids, 12 minerals, and vitamins. Raw honey has more amino acids than other honeys because pollen provides them.

The notion that diabetics cannot eat honey is longstanding. Its high carbohydrate content contributes to this. Fructose concentration in honey ranges from 21 to 43% and fructose/glucose ratio from 0.4 to 1.6 or higher.

Heart health  

Honey reduces cardiovascular risk. One study found that honey lowered total cholesterol (3%), LDL-C (5.8), triacylglycerole (11%), and HDL-C (3.3%) in healthy people. In patients with high variables, honey reduced total cholesterol 3.3%, LDL-C 4.3%, and triacylglycerole 19%. 

Digestive health 

Honey fights digestive-disorder-causing bacteria, boosts probiotics, and reduces inflammation. It kills intestinal pathogens like Salmonella, Shigella, and pathogenic E.coli.
