Honey Nature’s Energy Booster
Honey as a natural energy booster. Do you down an energy bar or drink during your hectic day? Try a spoonful of honey instead; it’s been proven to deliver a significant boost of energy to athletes performing strenuous exercise.
“Numerous studies have singled out carbohydrates as a critical nutrient in endurance exercise,” says Richard Kreider of the University of Memphis Exercise and Sport Nutrition Laboratory. “Most of the studies to date have shown supplementation with glucose to provide the extra staying power. We were pleased to find that honey, a ‘cocktail’ of various natural sugars, performed just as well.”
Acts as an energy booster: Why consume palpitation-inducing energy drinks when you already have honey? You can mix honey with some water and then drink this solution. The glucose content in the honey will be absorbed by the brain and in the bloodstream, which will reduce your body fatigue. This one is simple, yet effective.
