It’s flu season and I’ve already been struck with a crummy cold! My remedy for getting rid of this thing… Philosophie Superfood Manuka Honeys are it.
Honey has been used for centuries as one of the most versatile natural remedies. It’s natural anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties make it an ideal treatment for a variety of conditions. A thin layer of honey can be applied to cuts, scrapes, and burns to soothe pain, reduce inflammation, and protect the wound from infection. Some studies have shown that honey can even improve sleep, which is one of the most important ways we can help our bodies heal from illness.
When it comes to preventing and promoting recovery from colds, honey is a powerful multi-tasker. It is rich in phytonutrients that boost immunity, is packed with methylglyoxal (MG), a substance that has naturally anti-bacterial properties, and is an excellent throat-coating cough suppressant thanks to its thick consistency.
Manuka honey is known for its particularly high concentrations of MG, which is why we use locally-sourced raw Manuka honey to create our Superfood Honeys. We blend each of our incredibly nourishing Philosophie Superfood Blends into the freshest Manuka honey to create our potently healing Cacaobee, Greenbee, and Berrybee Superfood Manuka Honeys.
You can add our honeys to all of your favorite foods and drinks to boost your immune system and heal your body. We love adding a tablespoon of Philosophie Superfood Manuka Honey to a healing tea, like the detox teas that we include in our cleanses, or a healing herbal tea. You can also mix a tablespoon of our honeys into a cup of hot water with a splash of fresh lemon juice and a pinch of cayenne pepper to make a detoxifying elixir that is perfect for any time of year.
