Vitamins and minerals
Pure Manuka honey has four times the mineral content of any other honey. Enriched with calcium, iron, magnesium and many other beneficial minerals for a healthy balanced diet. It is also rich in B vitamins, amino acids and antioxidants.
B vitamins such as thiamine, riboflavin and niacin provide a multitude of helpful nutrients. Promoting cell health, the growth of red blood cells, strong energy levels, cardiovascular health and more. Essential amino acids help build muscle, transport nutrients and prevent illness. Especially necessary during the cold winter months.
Apart from the vitamins and minerals, high-quality Manuka honey has the potential to promote immune support. The honey contains a specific compound that stimulates the production of cytokines. These are the messengers responsible for immune health.
Oral health benefits
Research has shown that some of the best quality Manuka honey can inhibit bad oral bacteria. This bacteria causes plaque formation, gum disease and tooth decay. Of course, it is not a substitute for the regular brushing and flossing of teeth.
It contains anti-inflammatory, anti-viral properties which can help soothe a sore throat and calm an itchy cough. Just put a spoonful honey in hot water or even add a squeeze of lemon.
Manuka honey behaves very differently from refined sugar. It has a more balanced energy release in the form of glucose for quick energy recovery and Fructose for slower release. It can also support a healthy digestive system by discouraging unhealthy gut bacteria. As a prebiotic, it provides food for the healthy bacteria we have living in our gut.
It also contains special enzymes which enter the gut and help break down and digest food efficiently.
