Honey and your health

Honey and your health

We all know the feeling – the telltale signs of a cold or flu starting to take hold: the runny nose, the fatigue, the achiness, and that niggling tickle in the back of your throat. As a natural remedy, honibe® honey lozenges can help soothe your sore throat while also helping your body fight off the germs.

Most cough drops include a laundry list of ingredients – lots of chemicals and artificial colours and flavours. honibe®  honey lozenges, on the other hand, are made from pure honey with only natural flavours, no artificial colours, and natural cold fighting additives like menthol and eucalyptus. Honey is a natural sweetener, which makes the lozenges taste great without a chemical aftertaste. Honey also has a number of properties that make it better suited to fighting colds or flu than the sugar or artificial sweeteners found in other lozenges.

  1. Honey has more complex sugars – While both granulated sugar and honey contain glucose and fructose, the two are bonded together in sugar whereas in honey they are naturally separate. This separation in honey, slows down the rate at which the sugars are absorbed into the bloodstream, which gives honey a lower glycemic index than regular or brown sugar. honibe® honey lozenges are a natural choice for those who want to avoid artificial sweeteners and the blood sugar spike associated with granulated sugar.
  1. Honey helps with inflammation – Honey, with its balanced combination of glucose and fructose, draws liquid away from swollen tissues, making them less painful. honibe® lozenges are great for sore throats as they target the swelling that makes swallowing, drinking, and eating painful. honibe® honey lozenges also contain menthol and eucalyptus both of which are natural anaesthetics and provide a cooling sensation to help soothe even the sorest of throats.
  1. Honey is antibacterial - Honey has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties and has been used for thousands of years to treat wounds and infections. Many ancient cultures from around the world used honey for its medicinal properties as well as its sweet taste. honibe® honey lozenges are at least 97% honey – making them a great source of honey and its germ busting powers.

Honibe® honey lozenges are available in 4 varieties: Pure Honey, Cherry, and Lemon flavours with menthol and eucalyptus extracts, and Immune Boost with echinacea, zinc, citrus and vitamin C for extra antioxidants. Along with rest, clear liquids, and frequent hand washing, honibe® honey lozenges are an excellent weapon in the fight against colds and flu.
