Possible contraindications

Hello, healthy foods’ and lifestyles’ adorers!

In previous reviews, I talked about why we at Medusha chose acacia honey, figured out what useful and medicinal qualities it possesses, reviewed a number of recipes based on acacia honey and beeswax (Medusha products consist exclusively of them) and how to pick out natural honey among fakes … Today I’m going to raise a rather often question, namely, what kind of contraindications are when consuming honey and how does the nectar of white acacia advantageously stand out among other varieties.

Like any food product, honey can be useful or harmful if eaten uncontrollably. Since the product contains quickly digestible carbohydrates, you can’t go without some restrictions. An adult is recommended no more than 100 g per day, and a child no more than 40 g. For medical purposes, it is recommended to take honey dissolved in water, or prepared according to the recipes that I offered to your attention earlier. You should be especially careful with baby formula since the immunity of a growing body that has not been strengthened enough can react unpredictably. Tooth enamel also dislikes sweets, so rinsing your mouth after eating is highly recommended.

The typical contraindication to honey is the presence of plant pollen in it, a rather strong allergen, and in this matter, acacia honey occupies an advantageous position, since it, in fact, does not contain pollen, which explains its white and transparent colour. But in any case, it should be carefully taken by diabetics and people prone to obesity. The healthy properties of acacia honey practically exclude contraindications for its use. Children under two years of age can be considered the only reasonable limitation.

Also, isolated cases of individual intolerance or allergic reactions are possible in the form of a sore throat, rashes and oedema, which can be caused by abuse above the recommended rate.

To avoid most of the above reactions and limitations, I advise you to pay attention to the following when choosing honey:

  • acacia honey should have a pleasant, fragrant, but not harsh aroma, and a long aftertaste without bitterness;
  • have a light, transparent, or white or amber shade;
  • do not contain lumps and dark deposits, and of course sediment.


Or an easier way is to buy Medusha as a gift for your body and loved ones because we carefully and responsibly choose suppliers based at the non-polluted regions of Ukraine where bees are not treated with antibiotics and fed with sugar, and every batch we carry out to laboratory analysis.

By the way, Medusha is not only healthy and tasty food but also an authentic Ukrainian gift that guarantees unforgettable emotions. Buy Ukrainian!
