Egmont honey not only offers a delicious and environmentally friendly honey, but also has many benefits for the body after exercise. The natural sugars in honey are quickly absorbed into the body, making it an excellent source of energy for athletes. Moreover, honey is packed with antioxidants that protect the body from the damage caused by free radicals, which are often released during intense physical activities.
A study conducted by Baylor University has shown that eating honey before a 30- to 40-minute weightlifting session can help maintain blood glucose levels better than other carbohydrate sources. This shows that honey can be a relatively sustainable source of energy for the body. Another study, published in the Strength and Conditioning Journal, found that taking honey before and during endurance training can provide as much energy as sports gels made from pure glucose.
Both findings suggest that honey can be an effective and natural way to improve sports performance. Unlike many commercial sports nutrition products, honey contains no artificial ingredients and has a low glycaemic index, meaning it keeps blood sugar stable during prolonged physical exercise.
The study’s findings offer athletes and fitness enthusiasts an alternative to commercial sports nutrition products. Egmont honey can be a natural and effective way to improve sports performance.

About Egmont Honey??
Egmont Honey started modestly. A beehive might seem an unusual gift, but for Toby Annabell, a dedicated conservationist, it was perfect. Gifted by his son James in 2008, this beehive led to a passion for authentic Manuka honey and a thriving family business. They now care for 4,000 beehives spread across the Taranaki countryside overlooking the imposing Egmont Mountain. James and his 40-plus employees now export to more than 20 countries worldwide, supplying brands with pure New Zealand honey. Egmont Honey is making its way to Benelux, choosing food and lifestyle specialist Pitch Communications & PR as its local partner for promotional activities.
