Honey helps in the fight against gastrointestinal diseases

Do you consume honey? If not yet, know that you are missing out on the many benefits that this food offers for your health. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), it has more than 70 substances essential to the body such as water, fructose, sucrose, glucose (carbohydrates), potassium, iron, sodium, phosphorus, zinc, chlorine, calcium, magnesium, B vitamins, vitamins A, E, C and some types of amino acids (proteins). "It is a high-quality and energetic food with an immunological, analgesic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory action that works as a natural laxative", says nutritionist Flávia Morais of the Mundo Verde network.

To enjoy all the benefits of honey, the expert says that two tablespoons of dessert a day is enough. Children over one year old can consume food without risk of allergy. Care is taken by diabetics, as honey is a source of simple carbohydrates and a high glycemic index, at the risk of uncontrolled blood sugar levels.

However, it is better accepted by the body than the white sugar, source of empty calories and that it does not offer any nutrient to the organism, besides the glucose. "This is because 40% of the composition of honey is fructose, the natural sugar of fruits, much less harmful," says nutritionist Vivian Goldberger of the Emagrecentro.

Flavia also emphasizes its prebiotic function, which improves the functioning of the intestine and the absorption of nutrients.

The application of honey, by the way, is very indicated in the assimilation of food and in the prevention and treatment of gastrointestinal disorders, such as ulcers, gastritis and gastroenteritis.
