Honey is a sweet liquid mostly made up of sugar, as well as vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and zinc. Benefits associated with honey include reduction of inflammation, cough suppression, and wound care. The antibacterial quality of honey depends on the type of honey and when and how it’s harvested. Manuka honey is a unique type of honey that’s produced only in New Zealand and Australia by European honey bees that pollinate the Manuka bush. It is gaining popularity as one of the most beneficial forms of honey due to its antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. Manuka honey may help improve oral health, treat wounds, and soothe a sore throat. Great ways to incorporate honey into your diet include teas, glazed-on biscuits or scones, dressings, or baked desserts.
