The enzymes it contains support metabolism and vital organ function.Compared to nectar honey, honeydew honey has less sugars (72% vs 76%) and less water content, but the content of micro elements and salts is more than ten (some even claim to be 15 to 30) times higher. Exactly these qualities make the Oak Honeydew Honey an exceptional superfood beneficial for the humans.
Indisputable proof of the special qualities of oak honey is its rich content of vital vitamins (B1, B2, FP, B12 and B6), minerals, carbohydrates, folic acid, monosaccharides (glucose, levulinose, fructose) and high-molecular sugars (melicitosis). It is composed of a large amount of free amino acids and the mineral substances in it are between 5 and 9 times more than in light nectar honey types. These undisputable facts also determine the great healing power of the oak honeydew honey.
Research from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki examined 48 different Greek honeys and the result was amazing!
A research conducted by the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, demonstrates the beneficial effect of Greek honeys in the human body. 48 different samples of different types of honey were collected from all over Greece: pine, orange, oak, fir, cotton, heather, chestnut, thyme and paliouri. In this collection, six samples from the much-advertised Manuka honey were added.
The survey analyzed their composition, and all were found of unique nutritional value, while according to Professor Chrisoula Tananaki, they showed strong antioxidant action, as they can with incredible efficiency, to combat free radicals and the degeneration of cancer-causing cells. These antioxidant properties give the body the opportunity to “overload” with defenses against all diseases.
