Too much honey can cause different problems for your body such as weight gain, changes in blood sugar levels (diabetes) or even allergies.
For example, adding a few spoonfuls to a cup of boiling water and drinking it as a tea helps to relieve colic, nerves, stomach problems and promote sleep.
These Are 7 Negative Effects Of Honey On Your Health:
1 Increases the level of sugar in the blood.
If you have diabetes you should be very careful with what you eat, as honey is a natural sweetener that contains 80% natural sugar. It does not contain any fiber so you should be careful because the sweetness of honey is the same as table sugar.
2 It can cause weight gain.
Eating a lot of honey alone is not as beneficial to your weight because you can gain it. The maximum dose of all sugars (combined) is ten tablespoons a day.
3 Should be avoided by people with low blood pressure.
If you are a person with low or high blood pressure you should avoid eating honey as it alters both low and high blood pressure levels.
4 It can cause stomach cramps, constipation, bloating.
Although it is good for the digestive system, too much honey can cause cramping, diarrhea, constipation, or bloating.
Honey affects the body’s insulin production in the same way as table sugar, and constant stimulation of insulin production by overeating honey can lead to type 1 diabetes.
In some people it can generate allergic reactions because honey is composed of specific types of pollen or has been created from the nectar of specific plants.
It can increase the glycemic values, independently of the type of honey consumed and also be the cause of the appearance or worsening of acne.
