Airborne's Honeys for the health conscious consumer use New Zealand honeys specially selected to be high in polyphenols, antioxidants and oligosaccharides.
Airborne Health are the best health manuka honeys because they are high in:
Antioxidants deactivate free-radicals, which are caused by air, sunlight and pollution. They have been medically recognised as the cause of degenerative skin diseases, such as wrinkles and skin discolouration and can damage cells and harm the immune system. Eating foods high in antioxidants can help limit these negative effects.
Oligosaccharides are a Prebiotic (food for a Probiotic) which helps maintain and increase the number of ‘good’ bacteria in the digestive system and reduce the amount of ‘bad’ bacteria (particularly beneficial after taking antibiotics). They also increase absorption of calcium and magnesium, and help eliminate toxins.
Extensive research was undertaken by Dr Geoffrey Savage, Associate Professor of Food Biochemistry at Lincoln University, on antibacterial and antioxidant activity in New Zealand honeys. He is a world-renowned food biochemist and one of New Zealand’s leading authorities on the health benefits of antioxidants in food. Dr Savage and his team found that:
Airborne Manuka, Honeydew and Thyme contained high, naturally occurring levels of antioxidants – far more than any other honey varietals.
Airborne Honeydew also contains oligosaccharides, which act as a prebiotic helping to inprove the digestive system's microbiome of beneficial bacteria.
For maximum benefit take 2-3 teaspoon daily. Airbone AAH Active Manuka Honey can be used as a delicious spread.
