10 Health Benefits of Honey

Discover the health benefits of honey, one of the oldest sweeteners on earth.  It is a delicious part of any dessert made with it; see some of my favourite recipes here too.

Bees swallow, digest and regurgitate nectar to make honey; this nectar contains almost 600 compounds. We need our bees, so let’s do everything we can to save them and keep them here on this earth.

Honey is so good we have included it in our list of powerfoods that should be in your kitchen right now.

“My son, eat thou honey, for it is good — King Solomon, Proverbs

Health Benefits of Honey

1. Prevent cancer and heart disease
It contains flavonoids, antioxidants which help reduce the risk of some cancers and heart disease.

2. Reduce ulcers and other gastrointestinal disorders
Recent research shows that honey treatment may help disorders such as ulcers and bacterial gastroenteritis. This may be related to the 3rd benefit.

3. Anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-fungal
“All honey is antibacterial because the bees add an enzyme that makes hydrogen peroxide,” said Peter Molan, director of the Honey Research Unit at the University of Waikato in New Zealand.

4. Increase athletic performance 
Ancient Olympic athletes would eat honey and dried figs to enhance their performance. This has now been verified with modern studies, showing that it is superior in maintaining glycogen levels and improving recovery time than other sweeteners.

5. Reduces a cough and throat irritation
It helps with coughs, particularly buckwheat honey. In a study of 105 children, a single dose of buckwheat honey was just as effective as a single dose of dextromethorphan in relieving nocturnal cough and allowing proper sleep.

6. Balance the 5 elements honey
It has been used in Ayurvedic medicine in India for at least 4000 years and is considered to affect all three of the body’s primitive material imbalances positively. It is also said to be useful in improving eyesight, weight loss, curing impotence and premature ejaculation, urinary tract disorders, bronchial asthma, diarrhea, and nausea.

Honey is referred as “Yogavahi” since it has a quality of penetrating the deepest tissues of the body. When honey is used with other herbal preparations, it enhances the medicinal qualities of those preparations and also helps them to reach the deeper tissues.

7. Blood sugar regulation
Even though it contains simple sugars, it is NOT the same as white sugar or artificial sweeteners. Its exact combination of fructose and glucose actually helps the body regulate blood sugar levels. Some kinds of honey do have a low hypoglycemic index, so they don’t jolt your blood sugar.  Watch this video Sweetener Comparison where I compare stevia, brown rice syrup, honey, molasses, and agave, and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of each.

8. Heal wounds and burns
External application of honey has been shown to be as effective as conventional treatment with silver sulfadiazine. It is speculated that the drying effect of the simple sugars and honey’s antibacterial nature combine to create this effect. Studies have shown it to be very successful in healing wounds.

9. Probiotic
Some varieties possess large amounts of friendly bacteria. This includes up to 6 species of lactobacilli and 4 species of bifidobacteria. This may explain many of the “mysterious therapeutic properties of honey.”

10. Strengthen the immune system
Manuka Honey has been found to stimulate the production of immune cells according to a study at the School of Medicine, Cardiff University, UK. Manuka is a favourite of mine.

“Buckwheat honey should be a part of every winter medicine cabinet and here is why—it’s high in antioxidants and it really has a lot of immune boosting properties. Ideally, the buckwheat honey has a darker, richer flavor, it’s a little bit like molasses…this particular honey can keep you healthy throughout the winter.” says Dr. Bhatia.

Different kinds of honey have different flavonoid profiles, depending on the floral source of the nectar. The most beneficial kinds of honey for the body are Manuka and buckwheat.

Types of Honey


There are at least 40 types – each one has a distinctive taste and unique properties.
Darker ones tend to have higher antioxidant levels.
Monofloral honey (from a single plant species) usually has the lowest glycemic index (GI). For example, locust honey from the Black Locust tree has a GI of 32. Clover honey, which is used commercially, has the highest glycemic index at 69.

Honey Suggestions

If you want to get the goodness from your honey, make sure it is pure and raw.
Raw honey contains vitamins, minerals, and enzymes not present in refined honey.


  • Best not to feed to infants. Spores of Clostridium botulinum have been found in a small percentage of honey in North America. This is not dangerous to adults and older children, but infants can have a serious reaction of illness in the first year. Do not add honey to baby food or use as a soother to quiet a fussy or colicky baby. Most Canadian honey is not contaminated with the bacteria causing infant botulism, but it’s still best not to take the chance. “Do not let babies eat honey,” states foodsafety.gov, a website of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
  • It is a sugar, so do not eat jars full of it if you value your good health and want to maintain a healthy weight. It has a high caloric value and will put you on a sugar high and low.

To cook with honey or not: There is some controversy about cooking with it, although I cannot substantiate it from all of my research about honey.

“…when honey is heated above 108 degrees Fahrenheit, it becomes transformed into a glue-like substance that is extremely difficult to digest. This substance is considered a toxin (ama), since it adheres to the tissues of the body and is very difficult to remove.” ~ quote from the Ayurveda Wellness Center

That said, I am not convinced that we should not cook with honey, although I am not using it in most of my cooked recipes until I get to the bottom of this.


For Beautiful Skinhoney
Its anti-bacterial qualities are particularly useful for the skin, and, when used with the other ingredients, can also be moisturizing and nourishing! For a powerful home beauty treatment for which you probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen already, read Carrot Face Mask.

I love my homemade dandelion flower pancakes topped with these healthy syrups (below).

Honey Syrup: the goodness and taste of both honey and molasses.

Orange Syrup: healthier than sugar-based syrups with an orange zing!

Dandelion Flower Syrup: combining the goodness of honey with another powerfood: dandelions.

Delicious Sweet Recipes:

Peanut Butter Bliss Balls: Recipe created in my hippy days in the 70s—they are yummy!

Mango Squares:  mmmmangos yum!

Oatmeal Cinnamon Porridge & Sultanas: with a little honey for breakfast.

Dandelion Tea: for any time with a dash of honey.

Sugarless Date Squares: Not so sweet as the usual ones.

    Does Honey help in weight loss ? If yes, then how should we take it.

  11. Diana Herrington April 4, 2013 at 12:55 pm

    Including a little honey in your diet is balancing and in that way it helps with weight loss. The word to note is little meaning no more then 1 teaspoon per day instead of other sugars.

  12. jackie July 17, 2013 at 2:31 pm

  15. Diana Herrington July 29, 2013 at 11:49 am

    Hi Ihson,
    Acacia honey is a very good honey as it apparently has a very low sucrose content and a high fructose level, which is suppose to be a good choice for diabetics.

  16. Ihsan Karatepe July 29, 2013 at 4:43 pm

    Thank you Diana for your wonderful & valuable advice .

  20. Amira August 9, 2014 at 11:27 pm

    Hello Diana,
    I keep losing my color once exposed to very little sun and it takes a very long time to come back, I would like to know if honey could be used to treat sunburn.If so how should I use it, If in the contrary please do let me know of a NATURAL ingredient to treat it.

  21. Diana Herrington August 13, 2014 at 9:08 pm

    Amira, “Studies suggest it may work better than some antibiotic creams at speeding up healing, reducing infection, and minimizing pain,” says Kathi Kemper, M.D., author of The Holistic Pediatrician. Personally I have not used it for a sunburn as I never get them any more. I keep covered in the sun.
    I have learned that it can be used on burns.
    Honey can be effective for burns but best not to use ordinary honey from the supermarket or the health food store. Best to use a a medicinal honey. New Zealand research on honey for wound healing is manuka honey and physicians in Germany use Medihoney for treatment of persistent wounds. All that said if you have a bad burn, get immediate medical treatment because using honey for it requires expertise.

    Honey has many health benefits. Honey collect from single verity of flora, will differ in taste, aroma, moisture content , color and nutrients. The difference is based on flora from which honey is collected from. Such honey varieties are called mono floral honey(uni floral honey). This is obtained by harvesting honey from bee hives kept in vast cultivation of same variety of flora (eg, sunflower field, Mango orchids etc).

  96. OBINNA JACOB February 20, 2017 at 7:57 am


    drop some honey on a piece of tissue paper or light paper, if the tissue paper gets wet, it is not original hone! honey is not water, not oil and not liquid. honey doesn’t wet paper!

    Another way you will know real and undiluted honey is by dropping some on sandy soil or any surface, if it gets absorbed into the soil, it is not original. a drop of honey on a play ground can stay there without melting into the soil for more thank 2 months
    I am a Nigeria and I am not a fraudster. Nigerians are good people

    Honey is the best medicine. It was revealed in Holy Book of Quraan 1400 years ago. It may also be mentioned in Holy Books of other religions. I appreciate the efforts of Diana by creating an awareness. I am using honey for last 25 years.What Diana has explained are proven facts. Use honey in mild quantity but regularly. Try to get pure honey. I am having my own honey bee colonies and benefitting the most.

    Honey will make your hair shiny and soft just make sure you wash it out after all the way through or it’ll remain sticky. I suggest using conditioner before you shampoo results will be impressive

    Please Diana. Can a pregnant woman and a new born baby use honey?

  120. Diana Herrington November 10, 2017 at 5:31 pm

    It is best not to give honey babies under the age of 18 months. For a nursing or a pregnant woman, it is safe to eat honey. This is because the digestive tract in an adult can destroy the botulism spores, making them harmless. So, the toxin will not get to the foetus in the pregnant mother or to the baby of a nursing mother’s milk.

    is honey good for baldness

  122. Wirsiy Emmanuel Binyuy November 19, 2017 at 12:19 pm

    Bees collect ingredients for honey from many types of plants. All plants are medicinal treating various types of diseases. Bees harvest from the female part of the plant which is the flower. The flower is rich in nutrients. The bees then produces honey with all this nutrients and this honey is rich. Honey can treat many diseases and so it is great for humans. Honey is natural sweet and it is a good option to sugar.
