How to Lose or Maintain Healthy Weight Status Using Pure Raw Honey

When we talk of honey some people usually have the misconception that it is so similar to sugar, and so fear that it might be harmful just because it is sweet. Yet, unlike refined sugar, honey is loaded with beneficial vitamins and minerals. Your white sugar, which we often used to sweeten your foods and drinks or beverages, is usually seen as a source of “empty calories”, meaning that you cannot benefit much from consuming it.

In order to digest sugar, vitamins and minerals stored in the body are utilised, thereby using up many of these essential nutrients. You need these important nutrients to dissolve fats and cholesterol, so this sugar does not benefit you anything. This is why when you eat too much sugar you are likely to gain weight, not only because of the calories but from the resultant lack of nutrients. But honey rather harmonises this effect in that it is a great source of nutrients that help people in their bid to cut down weight.
Honey is loaded with nutrients like protein, water, energy, fibre, sugars and a variety of vitamins and minerals. It also has minerals such as iron, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, zinc, and calcium. Honey is a healthy source of vitamins like folate, niacin, riboflavin, Vitamin C, and Vitamin B6.
Illustrating the facts of these issues, an American health expert, Dr. Ron Fessenden, M.D., M.P.H. says: The average American consumes more than 150 pounds of refined sugar, plus an additional 62 pounds of high fructose corn syrup every yearIn comparison, we consume only around 1.3 pounds of honey per year on average in the U.S.” According to the expert, this research underscores the reason for the gross nature of the weight problem among Americans.

According to a recent research, if you substitute refined sugar with pure raw honey instead, the health benefits can be much. Natural pure honey is unfiltered, and is not pasteurized; it is a sweetener made by bees from the nectar of flowers. Most of the honey we see around is processed honey that’s been heated and filtered since it was gathered from the hive.

Because it is natural, pure raw honey is not devoid of its incredible nutritional value and potency. It can help with everything ranging from loss of energy to sleeplessness and even seasonal allergies. Moving on to raw honey may aid weight reduction efforts when compared to foods that have sugar or high fructose corn syrup, experts say. 

Many studies do associate honey consumption with weight reduction. A research conducted by scientists at the University of Wyoming, USA, discovered that raw honey can activate hormones that curb your appetite. In conclusion researchers agree that consumption of promotes healthy weight management.
