Why Manuka Honey should be your cup of teaThe modern go-to remedy is perhaps Manuka honey, which thanks to its natural nutrients can be beneficial (and delicious!) when consumed by the spoonful – or combined with a number of healthy snacks or drinks.
If you’re looking for ways to ramp up your natural health collection, consider this dark hued substance, which has been steadily gaining worldwide recognition for its benefits.
Whether you add a dollop to a smoothie or drizzle it on toast, Manuka honey could be a tasty natural alternative to help support your recovery from certain aches and ills.
HELP YOUR GENERAL HEALTH AND WELLBEING DURING COLD AND FLU SEASON
Ever had a cold or flu and someone suggested a cup of tea with honey? Well that’s because honey contains lots of vitamins and minerals including B vitamins, magnesium and iron to name a few. In terms of these vitamins and minerals, Manuka honey’s nutritional strength is superior to standard honey. So, when you next have the sniffles think about adding a spoonful to a warm cup of lemon tea, green tea or chamomile tea to help put a spring in your step.
If you find yourself suffering from a sore throat (such as strep throat), Manuka honey could help in your recovery. Researchers at The University of Sydney found Manuka honey could help to fight off several bugs including some that were resistant to antibiotics. If your throat has a tickle and is in need of some TLC, dip your spoon in the Manuka honey jar and take it straight.
A BURST OF ENERGY
Find it hard to get up in the mornings? Or do you get the 3pm slump? A dash of Manuka honey could be the little kick you need.
Manuka honey is a pure carbohydrate (made up of fructose and glucose), which makes it a source of energy. Try adding a tablespoonful to a breakfast smoothie made with a half-cup of oats, two bananas, a handful of blueberries and two cups of milk.
Whichever way you look at it — or use it — a little jar of Comvita® UMF® Manuka Honey could be a handy addition to your natural health cabinet.
