    Honey has several nutrients your body needs (that are obviously not present in other sugar), including riboflavin, iron, manganese and B12.
    Honey also helps support a healthy immune system, and is recommended for hayfever sufferers.

    Also, the darker the honey, the more antioxidants it contains.

In fact, honey has been shown to be effective in fighting flesh-eating bacteria and can be an effective treatment in fighting bacteria which have become resistant to antibiotics.

    Honey had been used throughout history for medicinal purposes, particularly as a healing salve for wounds. Honey is known to contain helpful antioxidant and antimicrobial properties and is often used to treat respiratory infections. In 2008, the First International Symposium on Honey and Human Health met in Sacramento to discuss the benefits of honey and presented studies suggesting honey could be useful in controlling blood sugar and diabetes, overall immunity, antiseptic wound healing, and cough suppressant.

    Honey is mainly a mixture of fructose and glucose.  However, it does contain small amounts of antioxidant compounds, including vitamin C.  It’s also great for sore throats.
