Nothing’s more annoying than a summer cold, but have you heard the buzz? Recent studies have shown that eating honey creates a protective barrier in your throat that may prevent infections. Honey also has antimicrobial properties. Boost your immune system and kick your cough with these sweet picks. (But note that you shouldn't give honey to children under one year old, because spores of bacteria in honey may cause infant botulism.)
Next time you feel a twinge of a sore throat, open wide for a few spritzes of Beekeeper’s Naturals Propolis Throat Spray. Propolis is a germ-fighting supplement with more than 300 vitamins, minerals, and compounds that work to fight off an oncoming illness.
Manuka honey (produced by bees that feed on manuka bushes in New Zealand) is a true superfood. Wedderspoon Manuka Honey Plus Immunity is a mix of manuka honey, elderberry, and watermelon that’s rich in vitamin C and fiber. Try it as a quick snack, drizzle it on toast, or stir it into oatmeal.
