“Manuka or not, all honey is a type of carbohydrate and using it to fuel physical activity can help energy utilization and performance,” Hultin says. She also notes that the antioxidants in manuka honey may help relieve postexercise inflammation. Although, since this has not been studied, it’s unclear how much honey you would need to eat to see a significant difference. You can probably get the same antioxidant bang-for-your-buck by eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables.

Los Angeles-based registered dietitian Mascha Davis, M.P.H., R.D.N., adds, “Manuka honey is well studied for wound healing and its antimicrobial properties, so if runners have wounds it could potentially speed up the healing process.”
