“Manuka Honey is a great natural and lasting energy boost with some powerful digestive and anti-bacterial properties. It’s terrific in smoothies because fills you up as a good as an ‘in between meals’ drink, it breaks down quickly, you don’t feel lethargic and you get an instant healthy boost,” said Guy.
Active Manuka honey is also medically tested to feed and nourish the skin to assist the healing of wounds, cuts, burns and scars, promote new tissue growth, and eliminate surface bacteria. It has also been found to assist conditions such as acne and eczema.
According to Professor Peter Molan, former biochemist at the University of Waikato in New Zealand, Manuka honey “works on bacteria, fungi and protozoa. We haven’t found anything it doesn’t work on amongst infectious organisms.”
