Top 5 health benefits of Omani Honey


1. Anti-bacteria, anti-fungal and anti-viral

Honey contains an enzyme known as glucose oxidase, which is responsible for breaking down glucose sugars and generating hydrogen peroxide, which has a “bleach” effect and an anti-spoiling mechanism.  moreover, Methylglyoxal is a compound found in certain natural honeys such as Omani jabali honey, and it is considered to be a powerful antibacterial compound, and it allows honey to be used as a medical treatment. Recent research shows that honey has anti-fungal effect against Candida species and also has anti-viral properties against influenza.

2. Cancer Prevention

Honey contains various kinds of “phytochemicals” with high levels of flavonoid and phenolic compounds that contribute to the high antioxidant presence in honey. Recent research has shown that organic raw honey positively impacts the development and prevention of cancer and tumors, due to the strong antioxidant property.

3. Obesity Control

Studies have shown that honey can be used as a natural sweetener as a replacement of refined sugar and also as a weight-loss program. Refined sugars lack important minerals and vitamins, which is why they are often called “empty calories”. On the other hand, honey contains 22 amino acids and a variety of minerals that are essential for promoting metabolism, and as a result, preventing obesity.

4. Healing and Immunity

Raw honey, free from any filtering processes or pasteurization, contain an abundance of vitamins and minerals that make it a powerful medicine. Raw honey contains natural antibiotics, which help kill microbes. When applied, internally or externally, honey can speed up the process of healing tissues damaged by infection/trauma.

5. Blood Sugar Regulation

Despite the fact that honey is sweet and contains natural sugar, it is widely believed that people suffering from diabetes can enjoy one tablespoon of honey every day without any issues. Studies have shown that raw honey can regulate blood sugar levels due to the existing combination of fructose and glucose. This means, that consuming honey will not increase your blood sugar level in a fast manner. For people with diabetes, it is recommended to consult with a doctor before including any type of honey in your diet.

Note: Infants younger than one year should not be given honey.
