    Honey lowers cholesterol because honey contains antioxidants. According to the MayoClinic.com, antioxidants provide heart-protecting benefits, which include lowering LDL (bad) cholesterol. If cholesterol patients mix 2 tablespoons of honey with 3 teaspoons of cinnamon in a 16-ounce cup of tea, they will reduce cholesterol by 10 percent in a matter of two hours, according to HealthMad.com.

    On the Other: Too Much Honey is Not Good

    While honey is beneficial as part of a complete balanced diet, it should not be used as a substitute for fruits and vegetables when trying to lower bad cholesterol levels. In addition, honey contains fructose, which is bad for your teeth according to Dr. Wendy Doyle of the British Dietetic Association.

    Bottom Line

    Honey can lower cholesterol, and dark honey contains even more antioxidants than light honey. So honey is a good addition to your diet so long as you do not cut down on eating fruit and vegetables. in the hopes that honey is a good substitute.
