Long ago honey is considered the most useful product that people add not only to food, but also use it as a therapeutic panacea, as well as in various care masks for the face, body and hair...
Nutritionists recommend consuming 2-4 teaspoons of honey daily to strengthen immunity and normalize the digestive tract. What’s more, honey is a great alternative to sugar. It can be used in all sorts of variations: baked goods, salad dressings, meat dishes, cereals and drinks.
Today we will talk about how to choose the high quality honey, which honey is more suitable for women and children, and which one for men, and even touch on the topic of which honey is considered the most useful.
What are the benefits and harms of using honey
As we said, honey is a storehouse of vitamins and nutrients. That is why doctors recommend using it in small quantities every day for both women and men.
- reinforce immunity;
- normalize the work of the gastrointestinal tract;
- stabilize the work of the circulatory system and heart;
- with angina, throat diseases, runny nose;
- in the fight against insomnia.
Please note that any abuse can lead to negative consequences. The same goes for honey. With proper use, honey will only benefit you, but if you overdo it, it can play a cruel joke with you.
Honey for men
In addition to all the beneficial properties of honey, it is especially indicated for men in matters of increasing potency. For a long time, healers have advised men to consume a couple of tablespoons of buckwheat or chestnut honey every day to normalize erectile disorders. Useful components, which are part of honey, normalize the functioning of the endocrine system and metabolism, enhance erectile function, and also affect sperm motility.
Honey for women
Nutritionists recommend that women consume lime, flower or sunflower honey in their diet. These species are an excellent source of strength and energy, serve to prevent diseases of the genitourinary system, remove toxins from the body, and are also an excellent substitute sweets and baked goods, which is considered a major female weakness.
Honey for children
As you know, honey is allowed to be consumed in the diet of children from only three years old. Since honey contains botulism spores, it is not recommended to use it for newborns or very young children, since they have not yet developed immunity. And if you are still not sure where the purchased honey was collected, it is better to abandon this venture altogether until a later age.
Which honey is considered the most useful
Of course, it is impossible to say for sure which honey is considered the best, since each of the species is responsible for its own function. Many nutritionists still believe that buckwheat honey is the healthiest one, as it contains twice as much nutrients and trace elements as others. It is used to combat dental skin diseases, with gastritis or anemia.
Other doctors believe that the most useful honey is linden honey, as it has many beneficial properties. It is customary to use it for asthma, bronchitis, flues as well as for the treatment of burns and wounds.
But the most common among honey lovers is considered to be acacia. It is versatile and has a tonic function.
How to choose quality honey
Many people mistakenly believe that thickened honey is a poor quality product. However, we want to dispel this myth. Liquid honey is only in the first thirty days after its collection. Usually beekeepers collect it in August or September. After the expiration date, it thickens, so if in December you still have liquid honey – most likely you have purchased a low-quality product that either contains starch, or preheated by the seller in a water bath. The color of honey does not play any role, since acacia, for example, is light, and buckwheat is dark. Therefore, you should not get hung up on the shade of honey.
