If you are looking for something to eat that will help to improve our body's defense against sickness, I would definitely recommend honey, as a testimonial, my kid have started taking a tea spoon of it everyday for around two months, and since then she have not had running nose which was happening quite often before, and for a short week she did not take them, the running nose happened once again. Although this is only a short period of observation, it seems to be helping.

Besides, honey tastes great, especially when mixed with lemom juice. But for the kids, it is recommended that we pursuade them to consume the honey by swallowing direct from the tea spoon (without mixing water), so the honey stays in the mouth and stomach longer.

My personal preference is Comvita UMF+ Manuka Honey, I am not sure about the Active UMF content that they claim to be a health promoting factor, but being a New Zealand product I do have strong confidence in them, and they taste good too. Two Years ago I had also used the UMF+20 hoeny to try to fix my stomach problem, though I don't have a way to prove that it works.

For more information, please check out Comvita web site:

There are many options differ by UMF rating, and the price difference is quite big, for prevention of flu for kids I think UMF 10+ is the best buy, the higher end ones such as 15+ or 20+ are usually for medication of stomach problems and are quite expensive. I remember they once offer a 35+ product but not seeing them anymore. The highest UMF+ product I have tried is UMF 20+.

There are many outlets in Hong Kong that has Comvita counter, I purchased at Sogo primarily.

Great stuff, great marketing. We all know the bniefets of Tee Tree oil, now we can exploit the poor tree again by calling it the Manuka tree. Still, well worth it.
