Honey is far from sim­ply sweet. De­pend­ing on the plant it’s de­rived from, honey can con­tain up to 200 el­e­ments, in­clud­ing polyphe­nols and other an­tiox­i­dants. To be sure, honey is made by bees, but it mat­ters what honey plants the bees col­lect nec­tar and pollen from.

Honey is a pow­er­ful an­tibac­te­rial and has been shown to in­hibit H. py­lori growth.

As long as you have nor­mal blood sugar lev­els, you can en­joy honey as you would any sweet­ener, with the bonus of per­haps sooth­ing your ul­cers.
