  2. Honey has a lower glycemic index than sugar.Hurray!!  This means it doesn’t raise blood sugar levels as quickly, and so helps to fight diabetes and weight gain.
  3. 3.  It takes about 2 million flowers for bees to make one pound of honey.
  4. A bee will produce only about one twelve of a teaspoon of honey in her lifetime.   Unbelievable!  So, don’t waste any honey.  Every drop is precious.
  5. 5. Honeybees have two stomachs.
  6. Honey was so valuable it was used as currency in medieval times.
  7. Honey produces hydrogen peroxide when it comes in contact with skin.  This is one reason why it is excellent for skin problems and bacteria.
