Here we describe the best ways in which to take Manuka Honey


Many people ask what’s the best way to take Manuka Honey.

Well, there are a few different ways, but there’s no hard and fast rule of taking Manuka Honey, it’s more about what’s right for you. But if you’re new to the values of Manuka Honey then here are some helpful hints and tips about making the most of your Manuka Honey!

  • Off the spoon. This is probably the best way to take it. If you’re usually well and you’re simply taking it as you would a vitamin, for example, then 1-2 teaspoons a day is about right.
  • Mix it up in food. Try adding a teaspoon to your breakfast – on toast, in porridge or drizzled over cereal… yum!
  • Dilute it with warm water. This makes a great winter drink when you’re feeling under the weather! Dilute your teaspoon of honey with about a third of a mug of warm water. Warning! Do not mix it with hot or boiling water – it will strip it of all its enzymes!

General advice seems to be taking 1-2 teaspoons a day.


Then, if you feel you are coming down with something, a cold or virus for instance, up it to 3 teaspoons a day; taking the third one just before bedtime. This helps build your immune system when your body is asleep!
