Honey boosts for diabetics

Diabee’s honey doses

SONY DSCGlucose tablets can be tasteless and crumble in transit; glucose solutions are heavy, and sweets usually contain animal gelatin, fats and artificial ingredients. DiaBee solves all these niggles as they are tasty, light-weight, highly portable, robust and have a long shelf life. DiaBee provides an array of vitamins, minerals, bioflavonoids and anti-oxidants. Each DiaBee ‘dose’ contains 5g of carbohydrate (all sugars). This dosage gives you a high degree of control. It can be used to pre-empt a hypo during rigorous exercise or taken to fine-tune blood sugars at the first indication of a hypoglycaemic episode; consumption of two or three doses work effectively if more serious blood sugar drops are experienced. Keep them in pockets, bags, car doors, bedside tables, desk drawers, gymbags. They also fit into most standard insulin kitbags, taking up very little room, adding very little weight but are there and easy to use when you need them.

Honey supplement

LifeMel_LifeMel is an Israeli-farmed honey food supplement which is undergoing second stage clinical trial in Italy to prove it aids recovery for cancer patients (and a third stage clinical trial is to be held in the UK if the second stage trial is successful). Research has showed that functional honey can be a good supplement for those wanting to increase their daily intake of anti-oxidants. It can enhance the immune system and alleviating side effects of chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy.
