In our previous blog, we explored plant-based diets. This week, we’re shining the spotlight on honey lemon water and its numerous health benefits.
Why we love the honey and lemon combination
Raw honey and tangy lemon - two popular superfoods with a myriad of health benefits. Meluka Australia’s raw honey is produced by bees foraging from Australian native flora. It’s a healthy and delicious sweetener and IS used widely as a natural substitute for processed sugar. Lemons are part of the citrus fruit family, and they’re primarily grown for their tart taste. Most of their health benefits are derived from the high levels of vitamin C and other compounds.
Combining raw honey and lemon into a wellness recipe not only tastes delicious, but is a great start to the day, and can be beneficial to your health. Let’s explore the benefits of honey lemon water below.
The sweet benefits of honey lemon water
Boosts immunity: Drinking honey lemon water can protect you from common diseases and infections that result from seasonal changes. Raw honey, and particularly Meluka Australia’s tea tree infused honey, is an effective remedy to soothe sore throat and cough symptoms. Best of all, is rich in antioxidants, antibacterial and antimicrobial qualities to aid your health and wellbeing.
Helps with digestion: If you have digestion concerns, why not try this natural tonic to aid your your digestive system and assist to break down your food so that you can seamlessly absorb its nutrients.
Soothes sore throat: A sore throat is usually the first indication of a cold or fever. No one wants to exert energy when they’re ill, and honey lemon water is an easy tonic to make with ingredients you probably already have on hand. When you’re sick, you need all the vitamin C you can get, and this tonic is chock-full of it. Why not add a dash of ginger for extra flavour.
Gives you a natural glow: Nourish your body from the inside out by drinking honey lemon water once a day for fresh and glowing skin. The oil-reducing properties found in lemons coupled with raw honey’s antioxidants can keep your skin healthy and looking its best.
Maintains electrolyte balance: Are you an athlete who’s tired of drinking artificial sports drinks? When you exercise, you lose water and electrolytes through perspiration, leading to dehydration. Electrolytes are minerals, such as sodium and potassium, that impact your muscles, brain and nerves.
Although sports drinks can help you rehydrate, they can also cause adverse health effects due to their high sugar levels. Honey lemon water is a natural, healthy alternative.
Healthy heart: Consuming more citrus fruits, such as lemons can naturally cleanse your body and assist to reduce your cholesterol levels, keeping your heart healthy.
We recommend drinking honey lemon water in the morning before eating breakfast; this is the perfect time because it can help flush out toxins and chemicals. If you’re in a rush in the morning, enjoy this refreshing beverage in between meals.
Stay healthy with Meluka Australia’s Native Honey Infused with Tea Tree
Meluka Australia’s Native Honey Infused with Tea Tree is an infusion of certified organic tea tree extract produced from the leaves of healthy mother trees from our old growth forest, with our signature native wildflower honey. Our multi-active honey is rich in antioxidants, antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. It’s 100% raw, single-origin and fully traceable to the master beekeeper.
Our native honey infused with tea tree is offered in two varying strengths: TTF24, a lower dosage of tea tree extraction infusion with mild tea tree notes, TTF32, which contains a higher dosage of tea tree extract and a more pronounced tea tree flavour.
How To Retain Raw Honey’s Healthy Nutrients and Enzymes
When using Meluka Australia’s honey range for your honey lemon water, opt for still or sparkling water and enjoy it cool or warm, but not hot as our honey is raw and can’t be heated above 40 degrees to avoid damaging the enzymes and healthy raw honey properties that the bees intended it to.
