Therapeutic Properties of Honey



HONEY. Some people think it's the nectar of the gods and it's got a pretty good reputation for its medical qualities too. But is that reputation deserved?

Honey has been used for at least 5000 years for its healing properties. Ancient Greece's Hippocrates, found honey cleans sores and ulcers on the lips. He also found it heals boils and running sores.

Honey is a carbohydrate-rich syrup produced by bees, primarily from floral nectars. Fructose and glucose are the major components but a large number of other chemical compounds are present in small quantities.

Honey has an extensive history of traditional human medicinal use, in a large number of societies. It may be used alone or in combination with other substances, and has been administered both orally and topically.

A number of studies have been carried out on animal models of wound and burn healing in which honey is used as a treatment. There are many research papers and considerable number of clinical reports of the use of honey to treat ulcers, burns, surgical wounds, gastric ulcers and as a carbohydrate source in oral rehydration therapy.  If you are interested in the healing power of honey please download and read the publications and research papers below.
