Bee product such as honey has been used thousands of years ago as a healthy supplement among human being. Honey is a nutritious supplement and contains fructose, glucose amino acids and multivitamins-minerals.

An antioxidant agent is proven able to prevent several acute and chronic disorders such as inflammatory, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, cardiovascular and cancer. It is believed that honey is beneficial on bone health and sports performance but it is lacking solid scientific evidences to prove its efficacy.
