Replace Your Sugar Addiction With the Health Benefits of Raw Honey

Ekaterina Yusupova

Are you looking to create healthier habits this holiday season? Replacing sugar with honey may be your solution to feeling better, losing weight and an overall healthier lifestyle.

What is Honey?

Real honey begins as nectar. Nectar is about 80% water; it is a very thin colorless solution. Through the use of enzymes bees convert the complex sugars present in nectar into more simple sugars of honey.

Honey consists mostly of glucose and fructose. It is what scientists call “a supersaturated solution”. Because of its super-saturation and low water content (15-18%) honey is viscous. That means it is thick in consistency and sometimes even solid. Honey is also made up of maltose, sucrose, and other complex carbohydrates.

Though its main ingredients are carbohydrates (sugars) honey also contains, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, organic acids, pollen, fragrance, and flavor compounds. It is an antioxidant that also possesses antimicrobial properties. Depending on the type of honey you use, its glycemic index can range from 31 to 78.

Honey vs. Sugar

Because honey is broken down nectar, its simple sugars (glucose and fructose) are digested much easier than table sugar (sucrose). This makes honey an anti-inflammatory food, while sugar is known to cause inflammation. So, eating a regulated amount of honey can help prevent disease and optimize digestion.

Honey is a superfood that possesses at least 181 components which give it its high nutritional value. Sugar is nothing but a sweetener that is hard to digest.

Honey does have more calories per tablespoon than white sugar. However, it happens to have more sweetening power so much less of it is required for use. So, honey positively influences your weight when consumed intentionally as an additive to tea, baked goods, and other meals.

Honey also helps sustain healthy blood sugar concentrations for endurance training and it is advised that you take a spoonful before your workout. So, honey is one of those “good” carbs that you should include in your diet for peak athletic performance and an overall enhanced health and wellness.

Try eating well, exercising and adding honey to your diet either as a sugar replacement, a pre-work out pick me up, or both. Let us know what you think!
