Manuka Honey

Buy Manuka honey and
propolis products in the
Philippines.
Honey is anti-bacterial,
anti-viral and anti-fungal. It
boosts the immune system
and acts as a powerful
antioxidant. However, if you

go to a US supermarket and buy a product labeled as honey, you most likely


wont receive any of the above benets. This is because the crystal clear
liquid they sell isnt honey at all.
When Vaughn Bryant, professor of anthropology and director of Texas
A&Ms Palynology Laboratory, tested dozens of honey samples purchased
at major US chains, he came to the shocking conclusion. Most of them had
pollen removed. At the very least, this means that they had been heavily
processed and had lost all of their health attributes.
76% of samples bought at stores like TOP Food, Safeway, Giant Eagle, QFC,
Kroger, Metro Market, Harris Teeter, A&P, Stop & Shop and King Soopers had
all the pollen removed. But it gets worse. 100% of the honey sampled from
drugstores like Walgreens, Rite-Aid and CVS Pharmacy had the pollen
ltered out. And when you get honey packaged in the small individual
service portions from Smucker, McDonalds and KFC, you should be aware
that it contains no pollen either.
According to the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), a product that
has been ultra-ltered and no longer contains pollen isnt honey. Moreover,
the World Health Organization points out that without pollen there is no way
to determine where the honey came from and whether it is safe.
It appears that a lot of the honey sold in North America comes from
illegitimate sources in India and China. Analyses of such honey products
have revealed that it is not uncommon to nd illegal antibiotics, heavy
metals, and other dangerous substances inside the so called honey. Not
only is this honey void of goodness, it can potentially be dangerous for
your health. It might even be worse than table sugar.
Honey is being ltered and
processed in order to
please the average shopper
who wants his or her honey
to look clean and clear. But,
what looks prettier and
more appealing is not
necessarily better for you.
If honey is clear,
transparent and easy
owing, that is a sign it has
been pasteurized. If you
want to experience the
abundance of honeys
benets, you need to go for
the raw honey. Raw honey is unltered, therefore it is cloudier and contains
particles, such as honeycomb parts, bee pollen and propolis, which are a
part of the bees hardworking honey-making process. This is the honey you

should be buying.
Honey contains 80% natural sugars (mostly fructose and glucose), around
18% water and 2% minerals, vitamins, pollen and proteins. And that is all
that should be inside of it. You need to visit farmers markets, local
beekeepers, food cooperatives and natural shops, such as Trader Joes and
Whole Foods, to get honey of such quality. When this type of honey was
tested by Dr. Vaughn Bryant, it passed the test with ying colors. You then
can have a look at my previous article to nd out 13 ways to use honey for
your health or how to use its antiseptic properties in these honey face
masks.
