Ways to take Manuka Honey
* Straight from the spoon
* Add to tea or warm water
* Dilute into water as a replenishing drink to rehydrate after exercise, during and after diarrhea or other cause of dehydration
* Add to smoothies, yoghurt, or use as a spread *Note for antibacterial effects it is best to take away from protein-containing foods
* Apply directly to the skin *For wound care we recommend sterile medical grade Manuka Honey Wound Care products
Directions
Take 1 teaspoon 1-3 times daily
+ For best results take at least 30 minutes away from protein-containing meals – methylglyoxal can be degraded in the presence of proteins
+ Avoid extreme heat (e.g. baking or adding to boiling water) as this can destroy some of the beneficial components in the honey
 
Precautions
Honey is not recommended for infants under 12 months of age.
Manuka Honey has a moderate Glycemic Index of 54-59. Diabetics may still take Manuka honey with careful management of blood sugar levels or by opting for Cyclopower.
