Honey DO

Did you know honey can boost your running and your health??

*If you add a little honey to your tea or spread some on top of your toast, you’re off to a good
start! Honey contains few less calories per teaspoon than sugar and has additional health
benefits.

1. Boost Antioxidant Levels: Compared to other sweeteners, honey was found to have
higher levels of antioxidants, In one of the studies, subjects who drank tea with wheat
honey showed a seven percent increase in antioxidant levels compared to the subjects
who had tea with sugar.

2. Keep fueling your workouts: A study on cyclists found that consuming 60 calories of
honey (one tablespoon) with water every half hour works well as an energy gel in
improving sprinting efforts for the end of long workouts.

3. Control Blood Sugar: Studies show that using honey over regular table sugar can help
steady blood-sugar levels. This is great news for those with pre-diabetes or insulin
resistance.

4. Curb Cholesterol: Using honey instead of sugar for 2 weeks can lower the “bad
cholesterol” and reduce levels of C-reactive protein, which is a measure of inflammation
in vessels.

5. Improve G.I. Health: Honey contains oligosaccharids, which is a type of sugar that fuels
the growth of immune-boosting bacteria in the gut, promoting a healthy intenstinal
tract.
