MANUKA HONEY

I thought I’d give you some healthy tips on and let you in on some of my daily routines starting with my daily Cup of Manuka Honey. I always start my ay with this, it’s amazing.

It’s really easy to make –

1 tablespoon,
Hot water,
and One Lemon.

I have this before I do anything, first thing in the morning as soon as I wake up.

Below is some information about the health benefits of Manuka Honey.

1. HEALING

Manuka honey’s healing properties make it a great wonder food. ‘It has anti-viral, anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties, and can be used to boost the immune system to help fight off illness and improve skin conditions. It also soothes a sore throat, and can be used externally on cuts, wounds, and ulcers to assist with the healing process,’ says Rick Hay, the resident nutritionist at Xynergy.

How to use Manuka honey to treat a sore throat: ‘Manuka is perfect for treating and shortening the length and severity of a sore throat,’ says Rick Hay. ‘It fights bacteria and viruses while also boosting the immune system. It’s soothing, and a spoonful can be taken neat, with warm water and lemon juice, or just with warm water. Avoid boiling the water. When taken at the onset of a sore throat it can help prevent it from taking hold.’

2. IMPROVES DIGESTION

Manuka honey is great for improving the health of your gut and banishing bloating. ‘It can help reduce inflammation from digestive disorders, relieving abdominal discomfort and bloating. It contains a natural pre-biotic, which is important for nurturing the gut’s good bacteria, and can, therefore, help the digestive system rebalance itself naturally,’ says Liliana Trukawka, nutritional therapist at Comvita.

3. BOOSTS ENERGY

Pure Manuka honey is an ideal staple to give you a buzz when you’re feeling tired. ‘The honey’s high nutrient density makes it a great natural energy booster,’ says Rick Hay.

4. ENHANCES SKIN

The Manuka honey health benefits are clear to see, however, it also has beauty benefits, too. ‘Pure, organic Manuka Honey is the perfect natural alternative for curing acne and skin infections,’ says skincare expert Malvina Fraser. ‘It’s also a natural moisturiser that improves skin hydration because it’s able to absorb moisture directly from the air and draw it into the skin.’

MANUKA HONEY, PORRIDGE

After an hour I have my porridge for breakfast with blueberry and pomegranate fresh seeds.

Works amazing for me, Fills me up, boosts my energy and also is the only time throughout the day that I consume carbs.

I also make sure I work out every day in the Gym for an hour, staying in good shape is not easy so it’s a big part of my life.
I do a lot of cardio, really love cardio and I feel happy after an hour run but equally, I work out on full body training for toning.

I will be posting about my gym routines in a separate post soon.

I am a completely different person after the gym it’s probably the best time to approach me for anything.
