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.

It is thought manuka honey has other benefits too when eaten, such as reducing high cholesterol. 0 More: Daily Dose: This is why your vanilla or cinnamon flavoured e-cigarette is toxicHealth-in-Motion advertisement Other news Lifestyle Man reveals how he lost 76kg after his girlfriend cheated on him News Is crowdfunding too often used for bogus treatments?
