As mentioned earlier, honey has many properties. Here we describe the most important properties of honey in full:

Natural honey contains a group of plant compounds that act as antioxidants. Types of honey contain many antioxidants like vegetables and fruits. Antioxidants protect your body from cell damage from free radicals. Free radicals participate in the aging process and may also contribute to the spread of chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease. Researchers have shown that this is a natural property of honey that contains antioxidants called polyphenols that play a major role in preventing heart diseases.

The main antioxidants of honey are flavonoids, and others include: polyphenols, enzymes, organic acids, other plant pigments, peptides and terpenes, vitamins C and E, selenium and zinc, which are in the composition of the effect. They leave more than themselves. Some honeys have 150 times more antioxidant effect than other honeys. The antioxidant content of honey depends on many factors: such as the species of bee, the plant origin of honey, the season, the weather, each of which has a specific effect on the composition of honey.


Anti-bacterial and anti-fungal honey,

the antibacterial property of honey is one of its other benefits. Some properties of honey such as supersaturated sugar solution, low percentage of water, high osmotic pressure, environmental acidity prevent the growth of bacteria and fungi. The presence of hydrogen peroxide is another of its benefits, which causes the antibacterial properties of this substance. During the processing of honey, an enzyme called glucose oxidase is secreted by bees, which causes a substance called hydrogen peroxide to be produced in honey, which destroys the wall of bacteria. When honey is diluted, its antibacterial property increases due to the reduction of adhesion between its ingredients.

Different honeys produced from different flowers have different antibacterial properties and this is due to the production of different percentages of hydrogen peroxide during honey processing. Different types of honey have different antibacterial properties. For example, when we talk about the benefits of natural honey from mountainous areas, or honey that contains honeysuckle, it certainly has higher antibacterial properties than honey from forests and fields. To preserve this property of honey, we must keep it away from heat and light.


Researchers have shown that the property of natural honey is that it has the ability to destroy undesirable bacteria and fungi. Honey naturally contains hydrogen peroxide, an antiseptic, the amount of antibacterial and antifungal properties varies depending on the type of honey, but it is clearly more than topical treatments for these infections
