A food supplement to help ease tiredness and fatigue and help contribute to the maintenance of a normal functioning nervous system and psychological function. Each tablet contains Niacin (Vitamin B3), Magnesium & Biotin plus 5-HTP, Bee Pollen, Freeze Dried Manuka Honey & Rhodiola Extract.

The Mānuka honey is sourced from our very own Manuka Doctor hives nestled in the luscious green mountains of New Zealand. The honey is freeze dried into powder form and added to our formula which is lovingly made in the UK to the very highest standard. The MGO (methylglyoxal) level in Mānuka Honey is derived from DHA (dihydroxyacetone) which is naturally present in the nectar of the Mānuka Bush.

Manuka Plus Honey Relax is a combination supplement packed with nutrients and ingredients that may help reduce tension and strain, while relieving low energy and fatigue. Read on to find out more:

Mañuka honey (MGO 300)

This high-strength honey, made by bees collecting nectar from New Zealand Mañuka bushes, contains the active ingredient methylglyoxal (MGO), which has an antimicrobial [1] and also anti-bacterial effect on the body, according to a 2018 study by Ulster University. [2] Our Mañuka honey is harvested from Manuka Doctor hives high in the New Zealand mountains, and then freeze-dried into powder.

Bee pollen

Collected by bees to turn into ‘bee bread’ for food, this ingredient may ease symptoms of stress and fatigue: a 2015 study by the Medical University of Silesia, Poland found that bee pollen can improve the blood supply to the body’s nervous system, helping to reduce stress and also physical and mental tiredness. [3]

Magnesium

According to the European Commission, magnesium, a key player in hundreds of enzyme reactions in the body, including energy production, can help reduce feelings of tiredness and fatigue. It’s also needed to help your nervous system function normally and for optimum psychological health. [4]

An important US 2016 study reported that the body needs magnesium to create and send messages between neurons. [5]

Magnesium is found in green leafy vegetables, nuts, pulses and wholegrains. [6]

Vitamin B3, or niacin

This B-vit, needed for multiple enzyme reactions in the body, can help reduce feelings of tiredness and fatigue, and is needed for normal nervous system function and for psychological health, according to the European Commission. [7]

A 2019 study by the Tor Vergata University of Rome found niacin is needed for the development and survival of neurons. [8] Niacin is found in poultry, beef, fish, nuts, grains and pulses. [9]

Biotin

Another B-vitamin, biotin, is needed to help your nervous system function normally and for optimum psychological health, says the European Commission. [10] Found in beef liver, eggs and salmon, [11] biotin is involved in the delivery of glucose to the brain. [12]

Rhodiola rosea

For centuries, the herb rhodiola rosea was used as a traditional remedy for anxiety, depression and tiredness in Russia and Scandinavia. Today, rhodiola roots are considered adaptogens – the name given to a type of plant that may curb the effects of stress on the body. Rhodiola can slow the release of stress hormones while giving energy levels a boost, according to a 2018 study in International Journal of Psychiatry in Clinical Practice. [13]

5-HTP

This is a compound our bodies create from the amino acid tryptophan, and we need it to make serotonin – an important neurotransmitter that helps to balance and regulate your mood. [14] Some researchers think that taking 5-HTP in supplement form is useful, and may help soothe panic, for example. [15]
