Functional honey with added black cumin seeds, pollen and mallow flower and mullein flower, for easier breathing.
Mallow flower is considered one of the most medicinal plants in our region because it contains plenty of minerals and vitamins, but also what is especially interesting – mucus, which coats the inflamed mucous membrane of the throat, soothes inflammation and helps heal wounds faster. According to its Latin name (Malva sylvestris) and Greek “malasso” (soften) and the name “Malvamed”.
Pollen collected by bees during the pollination season contains almost all the healthy nutrients necessary for the growth, development and health of the human body. That is why the World Health Organization declared it a superfood.
Mullein flower is great for the respiratory system in colds for the throat, reduces irritating cough and facilitates expectoration. Mullein contains a large number of antioxidants that have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects, and its healing properties have long been known. A 2002 study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology found that mullein extract can inhibit the growth of Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus.
Black cumin seeds in honey add a wide range of micro and macronutrients and various protective biologically active compounds and form a fast nutrient bomb. Black cumin is known as a “cure for everything but death”, and its main ingredient – thymoquinone, among other things, dilates the bronchi.
If you want to “breathe with full lungs”, this honey mixture can be one of the steps towards that goal.

Countless scientific studies have proven to us that nature offers excellent solutions, we just need to know how to use them. The astonishing synergy of plant substances cannot yet be achieved by artificially produced substances, and to believe that we could do without nature would be a great misconception. Plants have naturally developed a large number of phyto-protective substances or phytonutrients that help them cope with fungal and bacterial infections and allow them to overcome daily stresses. If we eat plant foods, we also consume certain active and protective micro and macro elements that play a significant role in the prevention of various types of diseases and health protection.
