The importance of honey is considerable, as it has many beneficial physiological effects. All
honey is immune-boosting and rich in antioxidants. It was known and consumed as far back as the Stone Age,
as evidenced by a 16,000-year-old rock art from Spain.
But what is honey?
“Honey is honey produced by bees from plant nectar or living plant juices or plant
from the secreted material of living plant parts by insects sucking up plant sap
which is collected, transformed and stored by the bees by adding their own substances,
dehydrated and matured in spleens.
There are two types of honey: floral honey (derived from nectar) and honeydew honey
(honey obtained by insects sucking plant juices from the secreted matter or sap of living plant parts).
The sweetness of honey is due to the fructose that does not crystallise,
and its flavour is determined by the essential oil compounds in the nectar of the various flowers collected
by the bees. The colour of honey darkens with age, the richness of its aroma, enzymes and volatile compounds diminish,
so it is advisable to consume it fresh (within a year). Despite this, honey does
not spoil and even thousands of years old finds can be consumed without poisoning.”
It is known for many of its beneficial properties,
such as being one of the best natural remedies for colds and upper respiratory tract infections. It is an excellent wound treatment due to its high sugar and low
pH content and organic acids. Beneficial for
the muscular, cardiac and digestive systems. It helps adjust blood pressure:
it raises low blood pressure and lowers high blood pressure. Honey, rich in antioxidants,
protects the body from free radicals produced during metabolism and in the defence against bacteria. In addition to antioxidants,
honey contains various vitamins (e.g. B1, B2, B6, C)
and minerals (calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc). Honey varieties collected from different plants differ not only in taste and colour,
but also in their active ingredients. Perhaps the best known and most widely used is
acacia honey. Due to its high fructose content, acacia honey remains liquid for a long time, up to 1-2 years,
and contains very little pollen. The primary beneficial effects of acacia honey are
its cough-relieving and antiseptic properties, and its ability to calm the nervous system. It is also
excellent for detoxification, strengthening bones, treating stomach ulcers or even
reducing stomach acid. It has also been shown to have muscle relaxing properties when used for sports and is also effective against anaemia.
You should know that black garlic is an excellent complement to honey! Why?
Black garlic is a real speciality, based on fresh white garlic,
which is heated at a controlled high temperature and high humidity. This process
gives the product its blackish hue, while the world of flavour characteristic of fresh garlic is lost,
but both the physical and chemical properties are changed,
resulting in an increase in the amount of antioxidants and certain compounds contained. This means
that the amount of a lot of extremely valuable substances multiplies.
Thus, it can have a positive effect on the immune system,
also on the cardiovascular system, besides it contributes to the maintenance of normal cholesterol levels.
thanks to its transformed compounds, contributes to stress resistance when it comes to temporary stresses
a beneficial impact on the circulatory system and supports the normal functions
of the immune system.
