Add Some Honey:
Manuka honey is not only a sweet treat, but a powerful functional food derived from the nectar of manuka ( Leptospermum scoparium) trees. It has been studied extensively for its wound healing and antimicrobial properties, as well as its eff ectiveness against bacteria that can be resistant to antibiotics. In fact, a recent review study published in the AIMS Microbiology Journal concluded that Manuka honey has the potential to be a natural antibiotic alternative due to its unique phenolic and methylglyoxal content. Add it to a cup of tea, mix it into your morning smoothie, infuse it into your salad dressing, or simply enjoy it raw.
