6 Best Manuka Honey According to Reviews
Last updated on August 22, 2012
Manuka honey is one of nature’s best healing foods. It is a specialized raw honey made by bees that pollinate the Manuka bush in New Zealand. It can be used to treat infections, acid reflux, stomach ulcers, sore throats, acne, and much more. Even some hospitals are bandaging patients’ wounds with Manuka in order to prevent MRSA and other infections.
If you’ve decided to tap into the power of the bees and buy some Manuka, we’ve created this list of the highest rated Manuka honey for sale on Amazon according to reviews. The important thing to keep in mind is that you want to buy one with a UMF rating higher than 10 so you’ll be getting all of the medicinal properties you possibly can.
Manuka honey is expensive but most people (including me) who’ve used it say it’s worth the money and a lot less expensive in the long run than antibiotics or other medications. (Not to mention the side effects those drugs may have.) Of course, you should always consult your doctor before stopping any medications or treating yourself with alternative remedies.
Here are the 6 best Manuka honey according to reviews on Amazon.
