Mānuka honey has long been hailed as a natural aid to promote good health and longevity. It’s often used for its bacterial fighting qualities and healing properties. But is it good for your singing voice? 

Is Mānuka honey good for your voice?


Mānuka’s thick, smooth consistency coats and lubricates the throat and vocal folds. Plus, it’s rich in antioxidants and has antimicrobial, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. These powerful qualities fight bacterial infections in the throat and help you recover quicker from vocal strain or a lost voice.   

Does Mānuka honey help vocal cords?


Mānuka honey is the best type of honey for vocal recovery, as it offers the most health benefits. So, savor a soothing, warm honey drink before or after every performance to harness its benefits. Warm or room temp drinks soothe and loosen vocal cords, whereas cold drinks can do the opposite, causing your throat to contract, making it harder to warm up and engage your vocal cords. 

Can Mānuka honey soothe a sore throat?


Many performers call Mānuka honey a singer’s superfood. Mānuka honey can help to aid, protect and soothe your throat from getting dry, a singer’s worst nightmare. But, the benefits don’t stop there! Discover how Mānuka honey can improve your health and well-being here
