There’ll be plenty of sweet treats to enjoy over Christmas, so rather than stuffing another chocolate-shaped reindeer into your stocking this year, buy a jar of manuka honey instead. This honey is produced in New Zealand and has lots of special properties that make it a great gift. Firstly, it contains high levels of methylglyoxal, which makes this honey more antibacterial than most. Therefore, when a dollop of manuka honey is applied to your face you get a fantastic cleansing facemask. It is thought manuka honey has other benefits too when eaten, such as reducing high cholesterol. 0 NEXT ON HEALTH24X Is tying the knot tied to a longer life span? 2019-10-18 16:45 More: Daily Dose: This is why your vanilla or cinnamon flavoured e-cigarette is toxicHealth-in-Motion advertisement Other news Medical Paediatric group issues updated ADHD guidelines Medical WATCH: Twig removed from young boy's ear by 'The Wax Whisperer' Medical 'I felt a pea-sized lump next to my right nipple – but I ignored it' Mental health Depressed moms = more anxious, troubled kids?
