The Science Behind
Title: Natural honey
lowers plasma glucose, C-reactive protein, homocysteine, and blood lipids in healthy, diabetic, and hyperlipidemic subjects:
comparison with dextrose and sucrose.

This study included
the following experiments:
i.effects of dextrose
solution (250ml of water containing 75g of dextrose) or honey solution (250 ml of water containing 75g of natural honey) on
plasma glucose level (PGL),plasma insulin, and plasma C- peptide (eight subjects):
ii.effects of dextrose,
honey, or artificial honey (250 ml of water containing 35g of dextrose and 40g of fructose) on cholesterol and uriglycerides
(TG) (nine subjects):
iii.effects of honey
solution, administered for 15 days on PGL, blood lipids, C-reactive protein (CRP). And homocysteine (eight subjects);
iv.effects of honey
or artificial honey on cholesterol and TG in six patients with hypercholesterolemia and five patients with hypertriglyceridemia:
v.effects of honey
for 15 days on blood lipid and CRP in five patients with type 2 diabetic mellitus; and
vi.effects of 30g
of sucrose or 30 g of honey on PGL, plasma insulin and C-peptide in five diabetic patients.
In healthy subjects:
Ø Dextrose elevated PGL 52% at 1 and 3% at 2 hours, and decreased PGL 20% after 3 hours.
Ø Honey elevated PGL 14% after 1 hour and decreased it 10% after 3 hours.
Ø Elevation of insulin and C-peptide was significantly higher after dextrose than after honey.
Ø Dextrose and artificial honey both reduced cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol
(LDL-C) and increased TG. Honey also reduced cholesterol and LDL-C; however it reduced TG and slightly elevated high-density
lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C) .
Ø Honey consumed for 15 days decreased cholesterol (7%),LDL-C (1%), TG (2%), CRP (7%), homocysteine
(6%), and increased HDL-C (2%).
In patients with hyper-triglyceridemid:
Ø Artificial honey increased TG, while honey decreased TG.
In patients with hyperlipidemia:
Ø Artificial honey increased TG, while honey decreased LDL-C.
In diabetic patients:
Ø Honey decreased cholesterol (8%), LDL-C (11%), and CRP (75%) after 15 days.
Ø Honey compared with dextrose caused a significantly lower rise of PGL.
Ø Elevation of PGL was greater after honey than after sucrose at 30 minutes, but was lower at
60, 120 and 180 minutes.
Ø Honey caused greater elevation of insulin than sucrose did after 30,120, and 180 minutes.
Conclusions of the
authors were that:
Ø Honey reduces blood lipids, homocysteine and C-reactive protien(CRP) in normal and hyperlipidemic
Ø Honey caused lower elevation of plasma glucose levels (PGL) in diabetics compared to dextrose
Dr. Weeks’ comments:
Here we have a well-designed
study that delights us in its counter-intuitive conclusion; honey does help treat diabetic! Not surprisingly, other sweeteners
did not show any healthy benefits. For example, dextrose in water, artificial "honey" (dextrose and fructose), and sucrose
(while sugar) caused harm. But raw honey, the good stuff .lowered blood sugar as well as lowering risk factors for heart disease
(total cholesterol, "bad" LDL cholesterol, homocysteine, and the inflammatory marker C-reactive protein). Honey
also raised the "good"
HDL cholesterol. So sweeten with raw honey and stop all that artificial stuff that increases so many health risks.
Years ago, Charlie
Mraz knew that diabetics could eat raw honey and have no problems. He explained that raw homey, a peptide-rich living food,
was a complex carbohydrate that needed enzymatic processing in the liver (by an invertase enzyme) in order to metabolize the
honey into bio-available simple sugars of sucrose and fructose. This is a "slow-burning" sugar, a stick-to-your-ribs enzyme-rich
food that does not strain the pancreas (does no harm) while at the same time delivering nutrients and amino acids.
BONUS: Aside from
eating this wonderful gift of the bees. I use honey in my clinic for a variety of other purposes. I have used successfully
topically for acceleration of wound repair (suture, bedsores, burns, ulcers); as an antibiotic (pinkeye, infected wounds):
as a skin treatment for acne and youthful glowing skin (honey is both an alpha- and a beta- hydroxyl acid for mild peeling
and detergent effects) and most impressively intranasally to unclog sinuses and to create the wave of death to this resident
bacteria and viruses that cause sore throats. As the wave of raw honey runs down the nostrils and becomes a sweet post-nasal
drip. It disinfects and rejuvenated the nasal pharyngeal tissue. Yes, IT STINGS (to the degree that your tissue is inflamed),
but in my 20 years of practice I have never seen anything help sore throats like raw honey (which contains glucose peroxide).

KOMEN DARI DR.YUSOF
Kajian yang di jalankan jelas menunjukan madu dapat mengawal paras gula untuk pesakit
kencing dan mengawal paras kolesterol. Walaupun kajian makmal ini dapat membantu anda yang terlibat secara langsung dengan
madu untuk membuat penerangan khasiat madu terhadap sakit kencing manis dan tinggi paras kolesterol, adalah di nasihatkan
agar anda TIDAK terus menyatakan madu penawar kepada sakit kencing manis, pengalaman saya pesakit kencing manis dan darah
tinggi yang mengamalkan madu,saya nasihatkan terus makan ubat-ubat dari klinik. Alhamdulillah , ada antara mereka telah mula
mengurangkan dos ubat dan paras gula masih dapat dikawal, malah mereka lebih bertenaga. Sekiranya anda masih musykil dan ingin
penerangan lanjut dengan jurnal ini, sila email kepada saya: firstname.lastname@example.org.
