Honey is one of the purest and most natural foods with the greatest amount of benefits on our health, but its consumption should be moderate. We tell you what exactly is the daily amount of honey that is recommended to take.

In 2014 the WHO published several recommendations which highlighted the importance of reducing the amount of sugar eaten per day. Consuming too much sugar can cause serious health problems.

Among these health problems are chronic diseases, especially of cardiovascular origin, but the brain is also another of the great victims of excessive sugar consumption. 

For proper brain function, a balanced supply of glucose is necessary. If the levels are very high, problems such as anxiety, depression or hyperactivity can be found.

Recommended daily amount of honey

From Maes Honey we are going to recommend taking honey in a conscious and responsible way for your body. Like any food, an excessive intake of honey has its consequences, especially in a society that abuses the consumption of sugar.

Honey is a natural sweetener. But this does not mean that we can consume it without limits. 

The recommendation for a healthy person, without weight problems, and who does not base his diet on an excessive consumption of sugars would be to take a maximum of one small spoon of honey a day. This is approximately 10 to 12 grams of honey. It is clear that everything will depend on the type of diet of each person and the amount of sugars that are taken daily. 

Another factor that can also vary the recommended daily amount of honey is the physical exercise that is done, the metabolism of each person and if he suffers from any disease or illness that honey can help treat. 

Benefits of taking it daily

More and more studies support the properties and multiple health benefits of honey. Here are some of the benefits of consuming honey daily: 

  • Caring for the skin
  • Controlling cholesterol levels
  • Strengthening the heart
  • Improving memory
  • Improving sleep
  • Calming the nerves
  • Protecting and caring for the stomach

Now that you know everything that goes into taking honey all the days, will you still not do it?
