Modern medicine has only recently discovered the fact that honey is a remedy to many diseases. We know it contains a variety of sugars and minerals and is considered an anti-oxidant. This means it allows the blood to circulate better and provide more oxygen to areas of the body such as the brain.
Honey is composed of sugars including glucose and fructose and trace minerals like Magnesium, Potassium, Calcium, Sodium, Chlorine, Sulphur, Iron, and phosphate. It also contains the vitamins B1, B2, C, B6, B5 and B3 all of which change according to the qualities of the nectar and pollen. Beside the above, Copper, Iodine and Zinc exist in honey in small quantities.
Researchers are not absolutely sure why honey heals but they are learning new things about honey every day.
