Customer Question about Manuka Honey for SIBO

September 05, 2018


“Hi, Just heard about your honey from a SIBO summit and would like to give it a try. I'm not sure if I need to buy the higher activity product to help heal my gut-maybe SIBO. Do you have any suggestions as to how much to take each day and whether on empty stomach or not? I am fairly new to Manuka Honey. Currently, I have a few other brands to help with a wound that didn't want to heal and to take internally. I would like to switch to your company going forward after visiting your site and feeling a real connection. It's pricey for my budget, so I want to use it wisely to get the benefits. Thank you for any help so I can place my order soon!”
(SIBO: Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth is a disorder of excessive bacterial growth in the small intestine)

Bees & Trees:
First and foremost, be sure to check the label of any brand you purchase to make sure it has the actual amount of MG (methylglyoxal) on the label. I am not a doctor and don’t have medical training, so any advice I give is based on personal experience or anecdotes from others. Typically, I suggest taking 2-3 teaspoons of honey per day for gut issues - I would eat it right off the spoon. If you are switching to Bees & Trees brand, I would try the 550+ MG activity honey if you are dealing with a specific issue. But if cost is an issue, our 350+ MG activity honey is a solid medium activity honey and still has good potency.

Thank you for the feedback on our site, we work hard to inform and educate our consumers about the benefits of Manuka honey and how to identify if a jar is properly labeled. I hope this information is helpful.

Kind regards,
Mike Everly

May 13, 2020

Have you heard that honeybees never sleep?  It seems to be a notion that is perpetuated by word of mouth.  Researchers say otherwise.  It just goes to prove that you can’t believe everything you hear.

According to Jürgen Tautz in his book The Buzz About Bees, foragers enter a Bee sleeping on flowerpronounced state of sleep—largely at night and in the hive. However, sometimes they sleep outside the hive as well. In addition, beekeepers and bee photographers the world over have reported seeing bees asleep in flowers.
