#239 Should You Eat Honey Every Day? with Dr Rupy Aujla

20 Mar 2024

Honey has been used for millennia as a medicine. And even to this day, people swear by it for treating viral illnesses, espousing the antibacterial and immune enhancing effects. But is there any evidence to support this? And if honey is largely made up of just sugar molecules, how can it have these miraculous effects?

Todays episode is a deep dive into what honey is, the chemical make up of honey and a look at some of the studies that have examined gut health, immunity and metabolic health benefits. I’ll reveal whether I think it’s worth taking a spoon of honey every day.

On another episode for YouTube I’m going to discuss how to choose the best honey, how to spot fake honey on supermarket shelves, as well as taste test different honeys available in supermarkets and online.
