Honey lovers and wellness seekers have something new to celebrate. Herbal honey supplement syrups, called MELs, are now available in the U.S. While all honeys have health benefits, MELs are unique. These aren’t simply honeys infused with botanical extracts. Nor are they anything like manuka honey.
Instead, they are a new and very efficient way to introduce even more of nature’s beneficial nutrients into your diet. For maximum benefit, enjoy twice per day: once in the morning before eating and again before your evening meal. Do not add to tea or consume with food. For all products, except GastroMel which should be swallowed, place one teaspoon in your mouth and let it dissolve slowly.
How are MEL bee-based formulas different from other types of honey?
Traditional honey production relies on the bees foraging on nearby nectar and pollen. But MEL bees are fed specific extracts from a variety of botanicals known for their health properties.
Because the bees’ diets are different, the quality of their honey is also different. One spoonful of regular honey has about 120 active ingredients. One spoonful of MEL contains thousands of active ingredients.
What about manuka honey? Manuka honey is produced by bees who feast on the nectar and pollen of the flowering Leptospermum tree, commonly called the Manuka tree. Producers release their bees in the vicinity of the trees and then collect their honey.
MEL’s beekeepers use a more controlled process, with more powerful results. A comparative analysis has demonstrated that LifeMEL, for example, has a higher level of activity than one of the best brands of manuka honey.
Reach for local farmer’s market honey when you want to sweeten your tea. But when you want benefits ranging from immune support and more energy to support of your respiratory system, digestive and reproductive health, explore the MEL family of herbal honey supplement syrups.
