Honey is a natural product formed from nectar of flowers by honeybees. It is a fantastic natural energy booster, often used by athletes and sports people. It contains both fructose and glucose, which are natural fruit sugars that are quickly and efficiently digested by the body.
Many people swear that a teaspoonful of local honey desensitises you to pollen and helps alleviate hay fever symptoms. There is no hard scientific evidence to support this but clinical research has shown that honey does give health benefits including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, respiratory, gastrointestinal, cardiovascular and nervous system protective effects.
