A team of scientists at Waikato in New Zealand found that eating a diet sweetened with honey helped to improve memory and lower stress levels.
The conducted a clinical trial on rats, who received either a diet with 10 per cent honey, or 8 per cent sucrose. The rats were assessed every three months over the course of a year, and those who ate honey were found to have an improved spatial memory.
Dr. Nicola Starkey, of Waikato, reportedly commented: " Diets sweetened with honey may be beneficial in decreasing anxiety and improving memory during ageing."
