Honey prevents the development of atherosclerosis

The experiments of scientists at the University of Washington (USA) demonstrated the ability of honey to prevent the development of dangerous vascular disease is atherosclerosis. This protective effect of honey, according to scientific experts, explains linienstrasse it natural sugar trehalose.

For atherosclerosis is characterized by fat (cholesterol) deposits (plaques) on the inner surface of the walls of the blood vessels that are in the process of accumulation impair their conductivity and disrupt the blood supply to organs and tissues. The consequence of atherosclerotic lesion of blood vessel walls are unexpected blackouts, coronary heart disease, angina, myocardial infarction, stroke.

The staff of the University of Washington established: daily consumption of honey by 30% reduces the size of arterial plaque, thus preventing the development of atherosclerosis.

Scientists have carried out a series of experiments studying the peculiarities of atherosclerosis development in animals. They found that in the experimental rodents in feed which was attended by trehalose, platelets were reduced. While the mice that did not receive the ingredient of honey, prevent atherosclerosis effect was not observed.

“Trehalose activates proteins that cause the immune cells to destroy and remove from the arteries of an atherosclerotic plaque. The result is vascular tissue become more elastic, blood flow is restored, and the pressure – normalized”, – stated the authors of the project.
