Day 33-Nutritional Bite

Daily consumption of honey raises blood levels of antioxidant compounds in humans, according to research presented at the 227th meeting of the American Chemical Society in Anaheim, California on March 28, 2004. Biochemist Heidrun Gross and colleagues from the University of California gave 25 participants four tablespoons of buckwheat honey daily for 29 days. Blood samples were collected and a direct link was found between the subject's honey consumption and the level of polyphenolic antioxidants in their blood.
