Oxidative stress is associated with increased generation of oxidizing molecules parallel to a significant decrease in the endogenous total antioxidant capacity. It represents an important pathological hallmark in several disorders, including cardiovascular conditions such as hypertension, and atherosclerosis, and neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease, and Alzheimer's disease. Naturally occurring antioxidants are largely used as dietary supplements to attenuate oxidative stress in human disease. Honey bee products have attracted clinical interest due to their favorable pharmacological and biological properties, including anti-aging, anti-tumoral, antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory effects. The presence of several important phytochemical classes, such as flavonoids, aromatic acids and phenolic components has been attributed to the beneficial effects of these products. This review evaluates current findings on the antihypertensive properties of honey products and their therapeutic relevance to the clinic.
