Clover Honey Health Benefits
Honey is one of the oldest sweeteners on Earth. Our honeybees work hard to produce just one pound of honey by collecting nectar from over 2 million flowers! No wonder they call them Mother Nature’s little workers. Clover honey is easily available at our local grocery stores. Clover honey is derived from closer plants and the United States and Canada are one of the top producers of this type of honey in the world.
Honey has so many healthy beneficial properties and is an amazing food to add into our diet. The bees add an enzyme, kind of like hydrogen peroxide, to their honey that make it a great antibacterial and antifungal food. This property gives honey a long shelf life. It helps people who suffer from gastrointestinal disorders such as ulcers.
Honey also contains friendly bacteria, making it a great probiotic. It contains flavonoids which help reduce the risk of heart disease and certain cancers. The American Heart Associations recommends 1 1/2 to 2 2/3 tablespoons a day. it is a great blood sugar regulator with the perfect combination of glucose and fructose. It also helps heal external burns with its antibacterial nature. Another amazing benefit of consuming honey in our diet is that it prevents aging and protects skin cells.
