The popularity of Manuka Honey has been increasing at a rate that would make anyone jealous. Many of us have been using it to treat some pretty bad symptoms, like eczema and acne. It also promotes the immune system, which keeps us from getting sick, while stimulating our growth hormone levels so we grow taller. It can be used for almost any condition.
To learn more about this amazing new product, I went out and read the book that inspired it, Manuka Honey – 100% All Natural. This book and the website made me realize that I need to go natural because my life depended on it. Now I have to find the product that is right for me.
Now, there are many brands of Manuka Honey on the market. Some brands are better than others. I researched all of them for a while and decided to choose a brand based on the ingredients that were listed on the label. It took a bit of searching but I found one that works great for my skin.
I had heard of bad reaction from this particular brand of honey. This is due to the manufacturing process and the local pollen. This honey does have a shorter shelf life when stored in a cool dark place.
Most companies try to sell you Manuka Honey products by telling you that you need to apply it daily for best results. I always ask for the amount of time that I have to apply before my skin adjusts and I am off.
With the right ingredients and my guidance, I'm happy to say that it worked for me. A few months down the road I was applying it every night.
Another great benefit is that the Manuka Honey products that I use now contain no added sugars. They have natural sugars that help my body to retain moisture. I did not like the way the sugars were made.
I discovered that the Manuka Honey contained the same ingredients that I get from my skin when I sweat. If I take enough honey, I am able to hydrate the skin and keep it supple. It is like having a moisturizer inside my skin.
