You may already know the antibacterial benefits of honey, but have you heard how raw Ivy honey is particularly beneficial for chesty, persistent coughs?
Ivy is known in herbal medicine to have both a mucolytic (breaks up mucous) and bronchodilating (opens the bronchial airways) effect on the lungs. Ivy honey is made when bees collect nectar from the flowering Ivy plant and bring it back to the hive. The resulting honey product is imbued with those cough clearing properties that Ivy naturally contains.
The honey, itself, crystalises quite quickly after harvesting, which is completely natural. After the honey is set, it is pressed in to a smooth texture which is ready to spread on toast or mix in to food.
Beeactiv’s Ivy Honey is sourced 100% in Ireland and 100% natural. It retails at €13.95.
