If you listen to the experts, the recommended dose of Manuka Honey per day is 1-2 tablespoons to reap the benefits.
But the question should be “why am I taking Manuka Honey?“
If it’s just for general health all pure, raw honeys are good for you and a teaspoon on your toast each morning is an excellent sweet spread. But if you have other ideas about your health and think Manuka Honey might help, then think about what you’re trying to do.
What makes Manuka Honey special?
Like all things popular on earth, the internet runs away with reality, honey’s are honey and some have more active ingredients and health benefits than others, only trial and error will separate the truth about which honeys do what.
As in my last blog post (Which level of Manuka Honey is best?), honey is a food so there are enormous restrictions on what claims can be made. I can only talk about my experience after 30 years in the Manuka Honey industry and the miracles I have experienced. Although anecdotal, I have an endless collection of testimonials regarding our Manuka Honey and the products we produce from Manuka honey.
Along my journey I have discovered that natural, pure honeys harvested and cold pressed, have amazing properties. It’s been documented for thousands of years how man has used honey for a range of external and internal disorders as well as wound care.
It’s not about the best level, it’s about whether you have real Manuka Honey and has it met all the markers demanded by New Zealand Ministry of Primary Industries?

It can be a very difficult question to answer
because the internet, bee keepers and commercial companies have all manipulated
the truth and elaborated on so many myths about Manuka Honey, the simple truth
about its benefits and what it brings from nature to you has been lost.
