What Makes Honey Better Than Processed Sugar?
By: Greg Brian
Raw honey has a wide variety of advantages over processed sugar and other sweeteners like high fructose corn syrup. Bees spin sunlight into liquid gold that contains beneficial enzymes, amino acids, local bee pollen, electrolytes, and antioxidants.
Did you know raw honey has a very low glycemic index, which has been shown in studies to keep down blood glucose levels in humans? That’s medical advice to take to heart, including helping you prevent heart disease.
On top of it, you’re getting anti-inflammatory powers, wound healing capabilities, and numerous other health benefits. None of that is going to be found in processed sugar.
Using raw honey also supports local beekeepers, and includes you in the incredible relationship between pollinators and flowers!
