Diabetes And Honey

Your doctor has told you to avoid all sweets and sugar. You have gone ahead to include honey in this forbidden-stuff list as a diabetic. Even in the food store, it is on the “sweetener” shelf. Such is the wrong knowledge that most of us have about honey. We believe that there is no way that diabetes and honey could be friends. We are mistaken.

It is a sweet natural substance used since time immemorial. Yes, it is sweet, but it is more than a sweetener. It has natural substances that we have chosen to ignore for years. To a diabetic, it stabilizes blood sugar levels. It also reduces conditions that are now conspicuous in Americans’ health:

  • Diabetes Type 2 Obesity (including child obesity)
  • Nervous system disorders Depression
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Liver disease

As you continue to discover the secrets of honey, you realize that the solution to blood sugar levels is as simple as including it in your diet. Type 2 diabetes is usually associated with obesity although there is no one-on-one causal relationship. For those who are diabetic and overweight, it is your life saver. It helps to lose weight more than a diet does.

As if that is not enough, when you take honey in the morning, you have a very good head start. It is a good energy source and helps to you to rejuvenate in those mornings that you just feel like staying in bed. As a diabetic, exercise is very important. Because of the energy in this natural sweetener, it becomes perfect for you to take it before, during and after exercise. It does not stop there, it helps in getting a good night’s sleep. For a diabetic who feels that the condition has robbed them of their normal lives, this sweetener is the solution. It will keep you alert throughout the day and you would be more active than even non-diabetics.

Honey is one of the oldest natural remedies used by humans. To say that a diabetic should not take it is to deny them of the many benefits associated with it. It is different for other type of “sweets” as this one comes naturally. As a diabetic, you need to rejuvenate your life; its natural sugar helps you to do so. It will keep you energized while helping you control your blood sugars. It is the best sweetener and the only one to a diabetic.
