New Medicinal Honey Product Launched in UK

A news medicinal honey product, called “Life Mel Honey,” has been launched in the United Kingdom.

According to the product website: “Life Mel Honey is produced by bees fed on a special food mixture which enables them to make a unique form of honey with all the beneficial properties of the therapeutic herbs and natural ingredients. . .Life Mel Honey uses nectar derived from therapeutic herbs including Siberian Ginseng, Echinacea and Uncaria Tomentosa, combined with a selection of natural ingredients including iron, protein and vitamins.”

A recent hospital study indicated that Life Mel Honey can, in some patients, have a positive effect in increasing counts for red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets in the blood, and thus may be beneficial for people with reduced immunity. (Medical Oncology, Vol 23, No 4, 2006)

The technique for producing Life Mel Honey seems to be based on the “express” method of honey production developed in Russia by N. Yoirish.
