New Zealand Manuka Honey Products Review

Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.

During cold and flu season, I am extremely vigilant about keeping my family healthy. My seven year old daughter has severe chronic asthma and resulting lung damage so the consequences of her getting sick could be potentially devastating. I rely on high quality, natural supplements to help promote our overall well-being in addition to a healthy diet, exercise and visits to our holistic family physician as needed.

I recently discovered a product line that contains New Zealand Manuka honey and bee propolis and I was interested in learning more. In addition to containing these “superfoods”, the product line contains natural and organic, non-GMO ingredients. Apparently, the Maori people have used Manuka Honey since ancient times because they feel it has a valuable place in their tradition due to its healing properties. We sampled the Manuka Honey Nuggets Candy ($4.19), Manuka Honey Lemon & Honey Lollipops ($6.99 for 12 lollipops, PRI Children’s Propolis Strawberry Cough Elixir ($12.25) and the Manuka Honey Strawberry Lollipops ($6.99).

Our family was hit hard by a recent virus and sore throat which affected my children first. It was extremely difficult for them to keep down any food or liquids but they were willing to suck on a Manuka Honey Lemon & Honey or Strawberry Lollipop. For one day, other than a few sips of water and juice, this was the only thing that they could keep down. My little ones said that they really liked the honey taste and the lollipop was soothing to their throat (it contains organic menthol). I appreciate that it contains only natural fruit flavor, nothing artificial and New Zealand Manuka Honey NPA 10+ along with Bee Propolis. One lollipop has only 40 calories, 7 grams of sugar and no fat. Overall, this product was a hit with my children when they were ill and I will contain to offer them a Manuka Honey lollipop whenever they are not feeling their best.

My husband and I really like the Manuka Honey Nuggets which also contains real Manuka honey. We keep these in our backpack when off road bicycling, hiking and traveling because it helps with dry mouth and throat. These delicious honey candies taste sensational and are made with PRI 5+ Bio Active Manuka honey.

The PRI Children’s Propolis Strawberry Cough Elixir is a high quality resource for mild cough symptoms. While I didn’t use this product by itself with my daughter during her cold with cough (due to her asthma), I did give it to her as a supplement and used it by itself with my older son during his viral bout. They both commented very positively on the all-natural taste and said that it was soothing to their scratchy, irritated throat. I appreciate that it is made with a special formula featuring UMF® 10 Active Manuka Honey and Bee Propolis. I will definitely keep a bottle of this in our wellness cabinet.
