We are unbelievably excited to share some ground-breaking research conducted by Dr Adrian Charlton of FERA. He has found that our Scottish Heather Honey contains 10x the amount of the essential nutrient Manganese than other honeys. He tested 200 other honeys including Manuka. This basically proves what we knew all along: Scottish Heather honey is a superfood. It is also now the second largest source of Manganese in the world. In Dr Adrian Charlton's words:
‘We didn’t know that honey of any type could be a significant source of dietary manganese before this piece of work was completed.”
If you've never heard of Manganese then here is a bit about it. Manganese is an essential mineral. As well as its high antioxidant qualities, it plays a role in helping to make and activate enzymes in the body involved in protecting tissues from damage and in the metabolism of nutrients. It also helps maintain healthy bones. We also like this article that goes into more detail https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/manganese-benefits.
We are so pleased to be able to share this with you. More than just something delicious to add to porridge, more than just antibacterial and antimicrobial, Scottish heather honey is now an essential food source, good for your bones, good for your health and a powerful antioxidant.
