Useful properties of honeysuckle


On our planet honeysuckle grows only in North America, Europe, Japan and some regions of China, and in all these places it is known for its beneficial properties.


For centuries, Chinese pharmacists have used honeysuckle flowers and leaves as an anti-inflammatory and antipyretic agent, and honeysuckle treats the skin, normalizes the digestive system and strengthens the immune system.


The long dark blue fruits of honeysuckle taste like a mixture of raspberry, blueberry and black currant.These berries have such a rich flavor that it is often "diluted" with other ingredients, such as blueberries or apples, when it comes to jam.


Honeysuckle berries are rich in fiber, potassium and vitamin A, besides honeysuckle contains more vitamin C than oranges, and several times more antioxidants than blueberries or any other berry. But what does it mean?


Fiber causes our intestines to work, starting the digestive process, and also helps to remove cholesterol from the body. Potassium strengthens the heart and skeletal muscles. Vitamin A is most famous for its eye benefits, but it is so necessary for the bones, in addition, it has a positive effect on the condition of hair, skin, and the immune system. Honeysuckle is extremely rich in vitamin C, which means that it is ideal for winter harvesting, helping our bodies during the cold season.


But the most remarkable property of honeysuckle is the high content of three antiaxidants at once: anthocyanins, polyphenols and bioflavonoids. Antioxidants maintain the elasticity of the cell membrane, allowing cells to last longer, thus prolonging our youth,it’s not for nothing that in Japan, the country of long-livers, honeysuckle is given an honorable place in the daily diet.
