Manuka Honey for three lucky readers
WIN Manuka Honey
The health benefits associated with New Zealand Manuka honey has been shown by research in the UK and Australia to be a powerful antibiotic against drug-resistant super-bugs such as MRSA. It can protect against harmful bacteria and help restore the balance of good bacteria in the body. Manuka honey is also effective against subcutaneous infections such as acne and sinusitis and could be significant for digestive disorders and inflammatory conditions.
Manuka (Leptospermum scoparium), part of the tea tree family, is a small evergreen tree that flourishes in New Zealand and Manuka honey is produced in the flower of the tree.
