While nature gives man true beauty, he increasingly turns to the artificial. Among the mass of tasty but low-quality products, it is difficult to find something that is beneficial for the body. That is why in recent years the call for healthy and environmentally friendly products has become almost a trend.

Honey has become one of the most sought-after honeys, and rightly so. All the healing properties of honey are indisputable. Most doctors recommend regular and systematic use of bee products. It strengthens the cardiovascular system, supports the healthy functioning of the liver, kidneys and gastrointestinal tract. In addition, honey is a powerful force in the fight against certain diseases.

Hundreds of years ago, honey was revered by healers, rulers and commoners. With the daily consumption of bee products, you can purify the blood, strengthen the immune system and protect yourself from colds and heart diseases. Do you suffer from insomnia? Drink milk with honey before going to bed and the problem will stay in the background. No appetite in the morning? A glass of water and a tablespoon of honey will give you a feeling of fullness for several hours, protect your stomach and saturate your body with vitamins and trace elements. The trace elements in the composition of honey are responsible for the health of the whole organism:

– Potassium and magnesium in it preserve youth;

– Iron and manganese contribute to the proper absorption of food; – Nicotinic and ascorbic acid, carotene, vitamins of group B, contained in honey, strengthen the nervous system, increase resistance to various infections and visual acuity;

– Glucose and fructose increase glycogen reserves, having a beneficial effect on liver function and significantly improving tissue metabolism.

– Honey is a powerful antimicrobial agent with a broad spectrum of action. The antibacterial components of honey work synergistically to effectively fight a variety of microorganisms, including multi-drug resistant bacteria.

– It also has an antiviral and antiparasitic effect and plays a role in the anti-inflammatory effect on the organs of the gastrointestinal tract, and also has a beneficial effect on the respiratory system and the nervous system.

– Honey finds its application in athletes, as it allows you to quickly inactivate free radicals formed during sports activities.

– Thanks to the high content of polyphenols, it helps prevent vascular atherosclerosis, that is, it has a protective effect on the cardiovascular system.

Honey is quickly absorbed by the body and provides an instant boost of energy, so it is often recommended to be eaten during recovery from illness or during periods of intense mental or physical stress. The composition, taste and color of the different types of honey depend on the type of plant source, the geographical area, the climate and the different types of bees involved in honey production, as well as the methods of processing and storage.
