2. Blood Sugar Level Regulation
Because the sugars in honey are absorbed into the bloodstream at different rates, honey helps to stabilize blood sugar levels. This makes honey a healthier alternative to refined white sugar for sweetening your tea and coffee. It’s also perfect for use on cereals (make sure you buy cereals that don’t already contain sugar), on breads, pancakes (it’s a healthier choice than maple syrup), muffins, etc. You can also use it in baking instead of sugar. Having said this, diabetics should still use honey in moderation, as with all sugar containing foods.
