Naturally Sweet Green Drink
Video by Dr. John Wertish
This past week was the Easter holiday and everywhere I turned I saw sugar. Sugar can overstimulate taste buds and we get used to the sugar rush. I enjoy sweet food, but sugar has so many harmful effects on our health. I skip the sugar and look for other whole foods to get me the sweet flavor but help me boast my health. One of my favorite additions is to add a little honey to my green drink to turn it into a sweet treat. Honey has so many benefits from fighting disease from antimicrobial organisms to healing wounds. Honey can add all the flavor of sugar but actually help balance your blood sugar. Just a little bit of honey can go a long way in your health. Next time you are craving sweets try this drink out!
“This antioxidant capacity of honey contributes to the prevention of several acute and chronic disorders such as inflammatory, allergic, thrombotic, diabetic, cardiovascular, cancer, and others.”
“Honey has shown antidiabetic effects from animal models to clinical trials. Researchers have invoked it as a potential antidiabetic agent”
