Active Manuka Honey Info



Thanks a lot for the amazing product. My son is allergic to dust and citric foods, I used to take him to see a doctor once a month spending around CAD230 to CAD300 every month. As I started to buy Active Manuka Honey on the internet and gave some Manuka Honey to him everyday, he has not been to the doctor in the last year.
