Surprising Side Effects of Eating Honey

1. Honey can help reduce inflammation

One of honey's surprise side effects, according to the owner of Sound Bites Nutrition, is that it can help reduce inflammation. "Honey has anti-inflammatory qualities because it lowers blood prostaglandin levels."

2. Honey may reduce cough severity

According to the Mayo Clinic, research have shown that honey works equally as well, if not better, than dextromethorphan-containing cough treatments.

3. Honey may help relieve GI conditions

Some gastrointestinal disorders, such as diarrhoea, constipation, and ulcers, can be helped with honey. The Mayo Clinic backs this up, noting research that suggests it could even aid with anxiety reduction.

4. Honey can protect against free radicals

According to Heather Sachs, MS RD, Director, Regulatory Affairs at Blue Apron, "Honey is recognised to give antioxidant advantages by protecting the body from free radical damage." "Free radicals are atoms or molecules that have the potential to harm the cells in your body."

5. Honey can protect your heart

"Honey is an excellent source of antioxidants, which most people are unaware of. Just make sure you're receiving high-quality honey that hasn't been overly processed.

6. Honey can be damaging to the teeth

Honey consumption should be monitored, according to Nicole Lindel, RD and Everlywell Advisor, because it might cause tooth damage.

7. Honey can be problematic for those with fatty liver disease

"Fructose is processed differently than other energy sources," Lindel explains. "It is processed via the liver, which may pose a problem for people who have fatty liver disease.

8. Honey will not lessen allergy symptoms

Because the pollens that bees collect are mainly from flowers, which are not as powerful as other pollens and do not trigger your immune system like other pollens, eating local honey does not assist with allergies.
