Therapeutic Applications of Honey and its Phytochemicals

Vol.1

Muneeb U. Rehman (Redaktør) ; Sabhiya Majid (Redaktør)

Honey typically has a complex chemical and biochemical composition that invariably includes complex sugars, specific proteins, amino acids, phenols, vitamins, and rare minerals. It is reported to be beneficial in the treatment of various diseases, such as those affecting the respiratory, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, and nervous systems, as well as diabetes mellitus and certain types of cancers; however, there is limited literature describing the use of honey in modern medicine.
