A 'good deal' on Honey is not always a sweet deal…Currently produced in New Zealand by bees that pollinate the Manuka bush, Manuka honey is typically raw and unfiltered compared to other honeys that may be pasteurised, filtered, comb liquid, or whipped. You really must be careful where you purchase honey, because not all honeys offer the same nutritional benefit or healing properties. Thus, those honeys tend to cost less money or be more widely available.
Raw and unfiltered honey is loaded with:
- Amino Acids
- B vitamins (B6, thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid)
Getting the most benefit from Manuka HoneyAfter purchasing high quality honey, many people wonder how they should use it. Well, the amount you should aim for is 1-2 tablespoons. However, you can do any of the following:
- Eat it straight!
- Add it to herbal tea
- Spread it on your toast
- Mix it with cinnamon for an immune boost
- Stir it into smoothies or other healthy beverages
- Use it anywhere as a replacement for sugar or alternative sweeteners
