USES OF HONEY FOR IMMUNITY
Weakened immunity is a fairly common phenomenon in both adults and children in conditions of poor ecology and the modern rhythm of life, associated with constant stress. Therefore, it is extremely important to strengthen your body in order to prevent the development of various diseases.
Honey is a unique product due to its rich composition. The most detailed analysis of the composition of honey was carried out and described in their article “Nutraceutical value of natural honey and its contribution to human health” by Abdulwahid Ajibola, Joseph P Chamunorva and Kennedy H Erlwanger. The authors, on the basis of their research, write that 100 gr. honey accounts for the following ratio of trace elements: sodium (Na) 1.6-17; calcium (Ca) 3-31; potassium (K) 4-35; magnesium (Mr) 0.7-13; phosphorus (P) 2-15; copper (Cu) 0.02-0.6; iron (Fe) 0.03-4 and others. In addition, it contains thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, pyridoxine, folic acid (that is, almost all the essential B vitamins), ascorbic acid (vitamin C), and phylloquinone (vitamin K), which is responsible for the quality of clotting blood.
Each component has a specific function. Calcium and phosphorus strengthen and preserve bone tissue, nickel and zinc regulate blood sugar, sodium and strontium, also contained in honey, support kidney function, sulfur removes toxins in case of poisoning, normalizes the digestive tract, chlorine affects metabolic processes.
Moreover, in terms of its constituents, honey is almost identical to the composition of human blood. It contains 22 of its 24 trace elements. Therefore, it is maximally easily absorbed by our body.
The organic compounds that make up honey stimulate the strengthening of human immunity, which makes it possible to compare the effect of this product on the immune system with the effect of modern synthetic immunomodulators.
The centuries-old history of the use of bee products in medicine has not gone unnoticed by modern scientists in various fields. Many serious scientists have directed their research on the therapeutic and prophylactic properties of honey. A huge contribution to the development of apitherapy was made by the head of the Department of Pharmacology of the DagGosMedAcademy, Professor Omarov Sh. M. In his book “Apitherapy in Medicine” (Germany, 2012), the author collected convincing material about the wide possibilities of using this product in the treatment and prevention of a number of diseases, about its importance in maintaining the health of each of us.
Despite the high calorie content of honey, even dietitians note its undeniable benefits. Thus, nutritionist, nutritionist Alexander Kunitsyn states in his articles: “Consumption of 70 grams of honey per day reduces the concentration of total cholesterol in the blood by 3.3%, LDL – by 4.3%, TAG – by 19%.”
