Manuka Honey - the new SUPERFOOD

In our fast-paced lives filled with stress, junk food, lack of sleep and exercise, a little health boost goes a long way. The easiest way to keep yourself in good health is to incorporate these 10 delicious superfoods into your diet. Besides being easy to find, they are simple enough to include in daily meals or as midday munchies.

Manuka Honey - Most varieties of honey contain trace antibiotic properties, but manuka goes several notches higher - it is antibacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory.

Produced mainly in New Zealand by bees that pollinate the native manuka bush, manuka honey contains potent health benefits and a teaspoon a day can keep colds, flu and tummy bugs at bay and support recovery in viral and infectious diseases.

When buying manuka honey, look for the UMF (unique manuka factor) on the jar. The higher, the better (and more expensive) - a UMF of 10+ is ideal for a daily dose.
