Honey as a drink which is very beneficial for health in recent years has mushroomed in the community. As part of Healthy house, drinks are promoted by Muhammad sallallaahu 'alaihi wasallam is truly magical and nutritious treat various diseases. But there are few obstacles, whether honey is safe for consumption by people with the disease diabetes (Diabetes)? Is not honey that tastes "sweet" is precisely to improve blood sugar levels? This article hopefully will help you ..
In The Journal of Medical Food in 2004, Waili NS reported research on the effects of honey on plasma glucose, C-reactive protein (CRP), and blood lipids in healthy individuals, patients with diabetes, and the excess lipid.
Diabetes Mellitus (DM) or diabetes occurs due to a disturbance in the pancreas that produce insulin. Though insulin is needed to enter the blood glucose into cells. With this state of the blood glucose levels in people with diabetes is very high.
Research by Waili and his friends showed some results. First, in healthy people, it turns ordinary sugar (dekstose) increased plasma glucose levels 52% in the first hour and 3% in two hours, while the original honey increases plasma glucose levels of 14% in the first hour and 10% in two hours. It can be concluded that honey is only slightly improving blood sugar levels compared to other sugars. Second, ordinary sugar and artificial honey also increase triglyceride levels, whereas the original honey lowers triglycerides and increase levels of good cholesterol (HDL). Third, the honey is consumed during the 25 days it lowers total cholesterol and bad cholesterol (LDL) and increase good cholesterol (HDL).
In diabetic patients, honey can lower total cholesterol, LDL and CRP. Honey can be used as an alternative sweetener because in addition to a better metabolism, may also increase levels of insulin than sucrose.
From these studies, it appears that honey can reduce blood glucose levels and reduce the risk of heart disease in diabetic patients thereby replacing sweetened with raw honey (raw honey) provides many advantages.
In China, has marketed a product combination of pollen and propolis Fengzhen claimed its researchers can control blood sugar and fat. In addition, these drugs can be said also relaxes blood vessels, improving circulation to prevent complications of diabetes. The same researchers also succeeded in proving the effects of propolis in treating diabetes mellitus as well as other traditional therapies, but more rapidly in lowering blood sugar levels. Also propolis member good effect in diabetic patients with disorders of gingivitis and fungi in the mouth.
Honey is rich in complex carbohydrates and peptides that require enzymatic process that can be burned as energy. This makes honey a type of sugar "slow burn" or have a low glycemic index is not burdensome to insulin. However, some honey has a glycemic index is sufficiently large so consider what type of honey is most suitable for diabetes and cholesterol disorders.
