You might use honey to sweeten your morning coffee. You may mix it with some plain yogurt for a snack. You might even pour some into your morning cereal to give it that extra delicious kick. But I bet if I told you that honey is more than a sweetener and that it has healing properties, you wouldn't believe me. You would say prove it, with science.
Well you don't have to believe me - take a look at an article by Cecilia Svesson recently published about the benefits of honey. Check it out at this link.
Tobias Olofsson and Alejandra Vásquez, researchers at the Department of Medical Microbiology at Lund University in Sweden, have discovered the importance of a bacterial group called the lactic acid bacteria (LAB), so named because they produce lactic acid as their main end product. LAB, according to the findings of this group's research, contributes to the health of a bee and produces the healing effect of honey.
Olofsson's research has revealed that honey can be used as a natural antibiotic alternative, not only for bees but also for humans.
So the next time you pour honey into your favorite treat, remember that you're also helping your body heal from the inside out.
