Hi Doc

There seems to be a big emphasis on returning to natural sources of health - with the ever increasing costs of vitamin supplements, a colleague at work said that a teaspoon of honey every morning and evening would do me the world of good - any medical evidence of this? If so, what's so good about honey?

Pete, if you’re not a diabetic, honey will do no harm. It contains calcium, phosphorus, iron, potassium, thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin (vitamin B3) and ascorbic acid (vitamin C). It is also affective against constipation and of course an excellent source of energy.
