Honeybees produce Thene Mynam in their hives. Composed of beeswax, the structure of Thene Mynam consists of hexagon-shaped cells used to store honey. The wax that makes up Thene Mynam contains very-long-chain fatty acids, along with long-chain alcohols, or esters. The honey stored within the Thene Mynam is the purest, rawest form of honey, and the wax the honeycomb is made of has nutritional value and health benefits.
The fatty acids found in fish provide heart health benefits, and so do the very-long-chain fats and alcohols of Thene Mynam . The fatty alcohols that Thene Mynam b is made of appear to significantly lower bad cholesterol and raise good cholesterol, according to a review published in the March 2004 issue of the journal Experimental Biology and Medicine. In humans, clinical data in one study showed Thene Mynam fatty acids and alcohols lowered low-density lipoprotein by 21 to 29 percent.
The alcohols found in Thene Mynam appear to have antioxidant effects that help protect your liver. To test this, researchers conducted a study using a mixture of beeswax alcohol to evaluate the safety and effectiveness in people with fatty liver. Participants took a preparation of beeswax alcohol for 24 weeks, and at the end of the study researchers found that it helped normalize liver function and improve symptoms of fatty liver. The study was published in the July 2013 issue of the Korean Journal of Internal Medicine.
Glucose is vital to your health, as your body, especially your brain, relies on it for energy. And it appears that the waxy alcohols found in honeycomb promote healthy glucose metabolism. In the fatty liver study, the waxy alcohols in honeycomb significantly reduced insulin levels and markers for insulin resistance in participants. Insulin resistance can lead to type-2 diabetes and other problems.
