Have a read here. Its an article on the health benefits of REAL maple syrup, you know the stuff straight out of the tree?
I find it amazing and a bit frustrating that we are SO slow to realize that all this natural stuff we can get straight from the earth is by FAR the healthiest stuff we should be eating. Who would have though God would have created the earth with food that was the best for us without us having to use our technology and so called smarts to make healthy stuff?… No most of the stuff we think is healthy turns out to be less healthy. We think we’re smart but really, you can’t improve on what God has already done.
“Maple syrup may have potential health benefits, say scientists checking out its antioxidants.
Canadian and U.S. researchers reported on their industry-funded lab findings analyzing compounds in the sweet liquid at this week’s annual meeting of the American Chemical Society in Anaheim, Calif.
They focused on polyphenols, a group of natural antioxidants that early-stage research links to anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and anti-diabetic properties.
“We found a wide variety of polyphenols in maple syrup,” said Navindra Seeram, an assistant pharmacy professor at the University of Rhode Island who led a session on the sweetener at the meeting.
“It is a one-stop shop for these beneficial compounds, several of which are also found in berries, tea, red wine and flaxseed,” he added in a release Friday.”
