Healthy Christmas gifts

Healthy Christmas gifts. 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.
