N. S. Al-Waili. Natural honey lowers plasma glucose, C-reactive protein, homocysteine, and blood lipids in healthy, diabetic, and hyperlipidemic subjects: comparison with dextrose and sucrose. J Med Food 7(1)100-7.
This study was done on people with high blood lipids and type 2 diabetes as well as healthy subjects. It was found that honey reduces blood lipids, homocysteine, and CRP in normal and hyperlipidemic subjects. Honey compared with dextrose and sucrose caused higher insulin secretions and consequently lower elevation of blood glucose in diabetics.
