Honey Composition

There is more! Honey contains several antioxidants. Some varieties contain higher concentrations than any natural food. Once in our bodies, antioxidants bind with the free radicals produced during metabolism before they can damage cell membranes, enzymes and DNA. Without antioxidants we are more susceptible to cancer, heart disease, stroke, cataracts, Alzheimer's, arthritis, and wrinkles. Studies show that honey is an effective dietary antioxidant.
