Manuka honey has many health benefits. It is powerfully antibacterial and bacterial resistant, which means that bacteria shouldn’t be able to build up a tolerance to its antibacterial effects. Manuka honey also has potent antiviral benefits. Manuka honey attacking invading pathogens with a substance called MGO. Found in the nectar of some Manuka plants, this substance helps to improve immunity, prevent infection, and heal both minor and chronic wounds.
Ginger has a very long history of use as a medicinal herb and culinary spice. It helps aid digestion, reduce nausea, and helps fight the flu and common cold. Gingerol, the main bioactive compound in ginger, is responsible for much of ginger’s medicinal properties. Gingerol has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, and can help reduce oxidative stress, which is the result of having an excess of free radicals in the body.
Lemons are high in vitamin C, fiber, and numerous plant compounds. Their vitamin C content helps to remove excess free radicals and boost immunity, and their fiber content helps aid digestion. They also help to alkalize the body pH, which also has immune-boosting effects.
Similar to lemons, oranges have high vitamin C content, fiber, and beneficial plant compounds. They are also a rich source of antioxidants and important nutrients. Potassium in oranges supports heart function and muscle contractions. Folate in oranges supports the brain and nervous system. Oranges also supply smaller amounts of calcium, magnesium, vitamin A, and B vitamins.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar contains a substance called “mother,” which consists of strands of proteins, enzymes, and friendly bacteria that give the product a murky appearance. These compounds have numerous benefits to health and immunity. Apple cider vinegar is also strongly antibacterial.
