A lot of people think of honey as a โ€œ๐˜ฏ๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜ญโ€ source of sugar that is healthier than other forms like table sugar (sucrose) and high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS). It does indeed have a ton of bioactive molecules that have been associated with health benefits, but youโ€™d need to eat 50โ€“80 grams of sugar to get a meaningful dose. Even then, is the added sugar in your diet worth it?โฃ

At least one study has compared honey to both table sugar and HFCS by having people add 50 grams of sugar from one of these sources to their diet for 2 weeks each. ๐“๐ก๐ž๐ฒ ๐š๐ฅ๐ฅ ๐ฅ๐ž๐ ๐ญ๐จ ๐ฌ๐ข๐ฆ๐ข๐ฅ๐š๐ซ ๐๐ž๐ญ๐ž๐ซ๐ข๐จ๐ซ๐š๐ญ๐ข๐จ๐ง๐ฌ ๐จ๐Ÿ ๐ฆ๐ž๐ญ๐š๐›๐จ๐ฅ๐ข๐œ ๐ก๐ž๐š๐ฅ๐ญ๐ก, ๐ฌ๐ฎ๐ ๐ ๐ž๐ฌ๐ญ๐ข๐ง๐  ๐ก๐จ๐ง๐ž๐ฒ ๐ข๐ฌ ๐ข๐ง๐๐ž๐ž๐ ๐ฃ๐ฎ๐ฌ๐ญ ๐ ๐ฅ๐จ๐ซ๐ข๐Ÿ๐ข๐ž๐ ๐ฌ๐ฎ๐ ๐š๐ซ.โฃ

That being said, there is some evidence that applying Manuka honey to wounds can help speed the healing process by providing a barrier to the environment and through providing ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ต๐˜ช-๐˜ฎ๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฃ๐˜ช๐˜ข๐˜ญ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฑ๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด to the wound area.
