It’s spring!! Bring on the sunshine, new growth, flowers and lots and lots of pollen. This is my favourite time of year, the birds are singing and I can smell the jasmine in the air however, the winds pick up and so does the hay fever.
Common causes of hay fever are sensitivity to pollen found in trees, plants and grass. This can be particularly heightened during this time of year as pollen particles are released for plant pollination.
Symptoms can be sore, itchy throat, blocked nose and watery eyes and there is no cure. Common treatments are over the counter Antihistamines, Decongestants & eye drops, if you are looking for a more natural alternative to this Manuka Honey is the sweet one.
Manuka Honey is well known for its antibacterial properties and helping relieve symptoms of Hay fever. This is believed to be because of desensitisation. Our Pure Young Manuka also contains Methylglyoxal (MGO) an antibacterial compound found in honey. The higher the Methylglyoxal (MGO), the higher the antibacterial properties. Our Pure Young Manuka starts from as low as MGO 20(We call this our unrated) to MGO 830+.
