Manuka honey, nature's perfect food!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Wedderspoon 100% Raw Manuka Honey KFactor 16 500g (Grocery)
I've been eating domestic raw honey for a while now to soothe my stomach, but turned to the "stronger" (and obviously more expensive) manuka honey after hearing about its healing capabilities.
When I received the Wedderspoon organic manuka honey, I opened it up, and smelled its interesting aroma. It almost has a hint of antiseptic smell to it, along with the sweet honey scent. And it tastes like it smells, but you do get used to it, and it is absolutely delicious. It is thinner and runnier than "Really Raw" brand american honey, so I find myself eating it faster, which is fine except I am about to run out shortly after buying it. But for me, an admittedly starving artist who is notoriously thrifty, it is still definitely worth the money.
So what has it done for me?
It calms my heartburn, helps my digestion, reduces nausea associated with IBS, and I've used it on a skin infection with great success. All while being completely natural and delicious.
I am very pleased with this honey - if you've read about the benefits of manuka honey you will be pleased to find that it does everything they says it does [and more].
I will be ordering one more jar from Amazon, before moving to New Zealand at the end of the summer, where I will be quite excited to buy it locally!

Do you find this is better than the really raw honey?

Good luck on your move, I've always wanted to visit there. Hopefully the honey is a lot less expensive, $45 for a small jar is a bit dear for me. I liked the flavor but I really can't justify spending that much again.

i had the same problem as you (heartburn) and this has helped. however if i get a real bad one, too much fried food, or eating late at night. i just put a table spoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water. that works immediately and relieves the pain.

You know what's delicious and soothing is a spoonful of honey, three tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and half a cup of hot/boiling water.
