Honey is known for its uses and health benefits, but each honey with a different origin has certain uniqueness from the other. It is maybe because of the country and its types of plants. In this article, we will be comparing buckwheat honey to manuka honey, so read on. In the previous months, we have learned a lot about the science-backed benefits of manuka honey. This time around, we will meet a new type of honey from buckwheat flowers in Canada. How does it differ from Manuka honey, and what are its benefits?

As we have already heard that honey is helpful in weight loss, we have also learned that it is an effective antibacterial. Therefore, it can heal sore throats and even coughs. But the best ability of honey is its power to speed up healing wounds when applied directly to an open wound.

Manuka Honey Versus Buckwheat Honey

Both Manuka honey and buckwheat honey can speed up wound healing because both contain antibacterial and anti-inflammation properties. However, these two kinds have differences. The first apparent difference is, of course, its place of origin and the plant that it was sourced. Manuka honey came from Manuka flowers in New Zealand, while Buckwheat honey came from the flowers of Buckwheats in Ontario and Quebec, Canada.

Buckwheat Honey

Buckwheats plants help improve soil fertility and stop weeds. It is planted by farmers as a cover crop and to prepare the soil for the next crop. Apart from these purposes, buckwheats can be harvested and grounded as buckwheat flour. Before the buckwheats produce seeds, it first has delicate white flowers. These white flowers are the source of buckwheat honey. Honey from buckwheat flowers has a dark color, just like Manuka honey. It is because of the large number of polyols in buckwheat honey. Polyols are potent antioxidants that can also be found in tea, dark chocolates, and red wine. Buckwheat honey also has a rich and malty flavor from wheat. You can also taste a hint of blackberries and chocolates in this honey.

Manuka Honey

Bees sucking the sweetness from manuka flowers in the wilderness of New Zealand produce manuka, honey. Manuka honey’s consistency and color do not differ from buckwheat honey. Both kinds have a dark color. If buckwheat honey has a malty flavor, manuka honey, on the other hand, has a bold and woody taste. Both buckwheat honey and manuka honey are best known for their medicinal benefits in healing power. The perks of manuka honey are that its therapeutic benefits have been widely studied since 1981. It is also scientifically proven that honey from manuka flowers has antibacterial properties, efficient in fighting infections. On the other hand, Buckwheat honey boasts its antioxidant properties, which have a higher activity than manuka honey. So when your purpose is to lose weight, then buckwheat honey is more helpful.

Another apparent difference between the two honey is its price. Buckwheat honey is more affordable than manuka honey. Apart from that, both honey manuka and buckwheat honey are delicious and contain medicinal benefits. The buckwheat is high in antioxidants, and the latter is high in antibacterial properties.

A Home-based Entrepreneur and Blogger For me, being a home-based entrepreneur, parent and blogger has been quite an experience. Here’s how I got started on it all. Where I’ve been Becoming a blogger and a hardcore, home-based entrepreneur wasn’t exactly a planned career action for me. I can almost say I didn’t see it coming. It all started when I got pregnant with my first child. Back then, I was still working as a flight attendant, and I have to admit that I really loved my job. But when that baby came on board, I decided that I wanted to be as involved in my child’s life as I could possibly be. Once I’d made my decision, I swung into action. I quit my job and quickly made plans for a new (and different) life with the baby in mind. My foray into the glamorous world of entrepreneurship and blogging was a little more abrupt. This started a lot more recently.   I first came into contact with these products sometime around two years ago. In 2018, my aunt-in-law would be the first person to preach to me the wonders of Aulora Kodenshi. I confess that I was very skeptical back then. As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t see myself as an entrepreneur (or even a blogger for that matter). I felt I was comfortable in my role as a housewife and that picking up endeavors like that was for people who had more money to “waste.” I decided to continue to keep my focus as a good mother and an ideal housewife. The plan was, if I kept feeding my family good food and making sure that they all exercised regularly, there wouldn’t ever be a need to buy any of the products my husband’s aunt talked to me about. As it turned out, I’d not end up buying the products; I’d also become one of its most vocal advocates. How I Got Here Our second child got a case of eczema when she was about 18 months old. Ever since that time, every so often, she’d have a rather severe outbreak. The doctors would always tell us it was nothing serious, nothing to bother about, and we believed them for the most part. A reason for this was that almost like clock-work, she’d always get better after every 3-6 months. All of this changed though in February 2019. She had an outbreak, and we thought it was normal until she scratched so hard she drew blood. We tried everything to no avail. Frustrated, I decided to try SHIRUTO, one of the many products from BE International. In no time at all, the eczema and even the scars cleared up. I was so excited, I took to my social media page to share my joy, and that’s how I got into blogging and entrepreneurship. Plans for the Future I’m happy with where I am right now. I have a healthy family with a career I want to see grow. I don’t conform to the classic stay-at-mom routine of waking early in the morning. I do my best work at night when everyone’s happy and rested. The goal is to continue to remain healthy and inspire everyone around me to be free and keep those positive vibes flowing strong!
