5 Unusual Uses for Honey

Lady In Home


Honey is known as a superfood, having been used by man for thousands of years. While honey is a tasty treat, honey can be used for additional purposes such as healing your skin. As more research is conducted with honey, we are finding out that this bee byproduct has more uses than anyone could imagine. We have compiled a list of five unusual uses for honey.


  1. Wound Care

    honeyuse2Honey has antiseptic properties that help to clean open wounds and sores, preventing further infection. In fact, many wound treatments in care facility settings include high grade honey in salves to help the wounds heal faster. It would be helpful to keep some honey in your first aid kit in case of an emergency and you are short on alcohol-based antiseptics.


  1. Manage your Blood Sugar


     It may sound odd, but the sugars that naturally occur in honey seem to be able to level out diabetic's blood sugar levels better than regular sugar or even sugar substitutes. This may be due to the level of sweetness in honey, which is quite high causing the person to eat less of it than sugar. Artificial sweeteners have also been shown to cause sugar cravings in users, which could lead to the spikes. If you want to avoid a rollercoaster of blood sugar levels, start substituting for honey to satisfy your sweet tooth.


  1. Lose Weight


     Another weird fact about honey is that it helps to boost the body’s metabolism, making it a natural weight loss supplement that you can take. Honey is also known to help better athletic performance and increase endurance, allowing you to burn more calories during your workout. While honey does boost your metabolism, you should in conjunction have a proper diet and frequent exercise. Make yourself a honey, lemon and cinnamon tea regularly as a weight loss beverage each day!


  1. Use Honey as a Natural Sleep Aid


     If you have problems getting to sleep or staying asleep, honey can help you get a restful night. A teaspoon of honey sprinkled with a little salt can help you get back to sleep quickly. The honey helps to balance out the stress hormones, adrenaline and cortisol, two compounds known to throw off your body’s natural sleep cycle. Keep some honey handy or you can throw it into some chamomile tea to start sleeping soundly.


  1. Keeps your Cells Healthy


     The antioxidants in honey help to keep your body cells healthy and will help to destroy unnatural cells, leading many researchers to theorize that eating honey can help you fight off cancer. More research is being done to see if this is true. If you are exposing yourself to substances that raise your risk of cancer, such as cigarettes and excess alcohol consumption, taking honey as a preventative is much less effective.

Honey has many uses and researchers are finding more as further research is conducted each year. All of the uses above involve using 100% natural honey so read the labels while at the store, because many manufacturers pass off honey flavored high-fructose corn syrup as honey. Contact some farmers in your local area and see if they have any natural honey for sale. That way you can ensure that you are getting the beneficial raw natural honey. Honey has many unusual uses that help us in our daily lives, so take advantage of them!
