Frequently Asked Questions

What is HoneyWorks?

  • HoneyWorks™ is a safe, drug-free honey-based sore throat and cough remedy product line made with 100% US sourced certified organic dark honey.

How is HoneyWorks different from other cough remedies?

  • HoneyWorks™ is the only honey-based product line sold at major drug and mass market retailers to be made with 100% U.S. sourced certified organic dark honey.

What type of honey is in HoneyWorks?

  • HoneyWorks™ is made with 100% U.S. sourced certified organic dark honey. While darker honey is more flavorful and intense than light, it also contains more nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. To be certified organic, the honey must contain ingredients with 95% or more certified organic, meaning free of synthetic additives like pesticides, chemical fertilizers, and dyes, and must not be processed using industrial solvents.

What are the key benefits of dark honey?

  • The color of honey varies according to their botanical origin and the weather of the place where the plants grow. In general, dark honey has higher mineral content (e.g. potassium, manganese, iron, sodium, etc.) than lighter ones. Also, the darker the honey color, the higher the phenolic and flavonoid contents and the antioxidant levels, which are critical in counteracting free radicals responsible for triggering the aging process and diseases, such as cancer, hypertension and high blood cholesterol and diabetes (General Medicine, 2014; Food Chem. 2007). Full-bodied honeys, such as Blackbutt, Jarrah, Manuka, Thyme, Dandelion, Leatherwood, Meadow, Heather, Chestnut, Honeydew, and Buckwheat happen to have darker color.

How does HoneyWorks work?

  • The 100% U.S. sourced certified dark honey can effectively calm coughs associated with hoarseness, dry throat, and irritants.* Honey has long been used as a sore-throat remedy. It has antibacterial properties and also acts as a hypertonic osmotic, which means that it draws water out of inflamed tissue. This reduces swelling and discomfort.
