If you’re reading this, you’re probably ate honey before or want to eat honey because you heard it’s good for your health.
Fact: Honey is good for your health. Complete fact: Not all honey is good for your health, as no 2 honey are created equal.
That’s why some “raw” honey from Walmart cost $10 per tub while a jar of manuka honey costs upwards of $30+ per jar.
Manuka honey is well known for its anti-bacterial properties. However, recent studies have revealed that a new, up-and-coming honey possesses much more health benefits than simply killing off bacteria…
…and it’s reigning for the title of ‘best honey in the world’.
Have your heard about Tualang honey?
Most probably not because this honey is exclusive and elusive. Tualang honey can only be found in deep tropical rainforest, atop the canopies of trees that stands 30 meters tall and is extremely scarce. This makes Tualang honey one of the few naturally organic honey because it’s far away from contaminants like herbicides, pesticides or factory waste.
Tualang honey has been used by indigenous tribes and villagers to treat infections and cure diseases for centuries, without the need for modern pharmaceutical drugs. It is also commonly offered as a gift because Tualang honey is highly valued for its medicinal benefits amongst the indigenous people.
Many of the medicinal benefits of Tualang honey is attributed to its high antioxidant content and anti-inflammatory properties. In fact, Tualang honey contains the highest amount of anti-inflammatory agent ever recorded in honey, even more so than the famous manuka honey.
This article will go through the 8 health benefits of Tualang honey.
- High antioxidant content
Most raw honey contains trace amount of antioxidant but Tualang honey is the cream of the crops, containing the highest amount of antioxidant like phenolic acids, flavonoids, amino acids and proteins ever recorded in honey.
Antioxidants are important because they act as shields for our cells against oxidative stress, a natural phenomenon that damages our organ cells, killing them or increases the risk of turning into cancer cells.
- Potent anti-bacterial properties
Though manuka honey may be recognized as the number 1 enemy of the bacterial kingdom, Tualang honey has demonstrated that it contains comparable anti-bacterial properties in lab tests.
Tualang honey inhibits the growth of common skin bacteria as well as the spread of dangerous strains such as streptococcus, salmonella and staphylococcus aureus. Some of these strains of bacteria are caused by hospital infections and have become drug resistant, meaning that researchers have been looking for safer, alternative remedies to treat them…
…and Tualang honey is a promising candidate.
- Alleviate diabetic symptoms
Giving sweet stuff to a diabetic patient may seems foolish and counterintuitive, but Tualang honey has shown to alleviate diabetic symptoms and regulates blood sugar levels very efficiently. Tualang honey has lower glycaemic index compared to most honey because it has a naturally balanced glucose:fructose ratio, thus making Tualang honey easy to incorporate into different diets.
- A threat to cancer cells
Tualang honey has caught the attention of researches around the world when a lab in Malaysia found that Tualang honey manages to kill off breast cancer cells and leaving healthy cells untouched in an experiment. Studies reveals that due to the abundance of flavonoid and phenolic acid content in Tualang honey, it has a significant impact on breast cancer cells which compares favourably with the anticancer activity of tamoxifen without side effects.
- Promotes wound healing
Possessing strong anti-bacterial properties coupled with high anti-inflammatory agents allows wounds to heal much faster, stimulating new cells’ growth.
Several studies have been conducted on the wound healing abilities of Tualang honey with the results proving largely positive. One study published in 2010 was conducted into the effects of Tualang honey as a wound dressing in full thickness burn wounds that typically require skin graft surgery.
- Improves cardiovascular health
Tualang honey has been found to reduce blood pressure and decrease cholesterol levels, improving cardiovascular health. One very recent study published earlier this year concluded that Tualang honey demonstrated protective effects in rats induced with myocardial infraction. Its effect on heart health was attributed to improved antioxidant levels in the heart tissue as well as reduced lipid peroxidation levels.
- Reliefs post-menopausal symptoms
HRT may be an effective treatment for post-menopausal symptoms, but it has its fair share of side effects. A comprehensive study was conducted by the University of Science in Malaysia to examine the effects of Tualang honey on a range of postmenopausal symptoms including hormonal deficiency and bone density. Postmenopausal women treated with Tualang honey experienced a reduction in menopausal symptoms and an in increase in their bone strength and mineral density.
Indeed, the effect of Tualang honey on bone density was comparable with the effects of HRT when taken at a dose of 20mg a day. Researchers found that a dose of 20mg a day was safe and concluded that Tualang honey could be used to protect against bone weakening conditions without the risk of side effects.
This made Tualang honey a promising avenue to develop an alternative treatment to replace HRT.
- Increase male virility
This may sound really unbelievable and absurd…that Tualang honey has been observed to increase the sperm count and virility of men. One recent study published in 2009showed that Tualang honey was as effective as Tribestan in improving sperm count parameter when consumed for a 12-week period. Furthermore, the study showed that the honey was safe, and no adverse effects were reported.
After reading all these health benefits of Tualang honey must’ve made you a little doozy and sceptical, rest assured that these benefits are derived from published scientific journals.
