Spring is in the air! Unfortunately, if you suffer from seasonal allergies, you may not be so excited about the changing of the seasons. While there are plenty of over-the-counter medications that help with the worst symptoms, did you know that Manuka honey can help too?
Manuka honey is a type of honey native to New Zealand, and its active ingredient, MGL methylglyoxal, is an effective treatment for nasal mucus and congestion. It’s also an anti- inflammatory, and some studies say it may help to regulate the body’s autoimmune response.
Here are a few ways to enjoy Manuka honey this allergy season:
- Use it to sweeten hot tea
- Drizzle on some grapefruit
- Mix with pineapple juice to make a homemade dressing
- Drizzle on warm toast
