Benefits Of Honey

Honey and its Benefits

Honey is a natural energy booster and a great energy builder.It  is a natural source of carbohydrates which provide strength and energy to our bodies. The glucose in honey is absorbed by the body quickly and gives an immediate energy boost, while the fructose is absorbed more slowly providing sustained energy.
