Melzest™ is the complete, convenient solution for the relief of the symptoms of coughs and colds. With Melzest™, HoneyLab have reinvented and improved on the classic “honey & lemon” for colds, bringing it into the 21st century.

“Mel” is Latin for honey, and the European honeybee’s scientific name is Apis mellifera.

Adults have 2-3 colds per year on average, while children have 5-7 per year.

In each 250ml Melzest™ container there is:

  • 146ml New Zealand manuka honey
  • 96ml glycerin
  • Vitamin C (100mg/8ml)
  • Zinc (30mg of the citrate=~5mg delivered zinc/8ml)
  • Natural lemon oil flavour

The recommended dosage is as follows:

  • Adults – 4 pumps (8ml), 2-3 times per day
  • Older children (ages 9-18) – 3 pumps (6ml), 2-3 times per day
  • Younger children (ages 4-8) – 1 pump (2ml), 2-3 times per day

Do not exceed stated dose. Not recommended for children aged under 4 years.

To make a great tasting honey & lemon drink to sip, pump Melzest™ into a cup or glass and add hot water to taste. Alternatively, it can simply be pumped onto a spoon and eaten, which, again, tastes great.

Honey & lemon has been used for centuries, and for good reason – it makes people feel better. But the last thing you want to do when sick is go out and get the honey and the lemon. On top of this, you have to make sure you are taking the right amounts. As an extra, you may decide to buy and take vitamin C and zinc as these have also been shown to help with colds. Melzest™ contains all of these in the correct dose you need, through a novel and accurate dispensing method. The Melzest™ pump means that the whole family can receive the exact dose they need for their age, and it tastes great if eaten or taken as a drink. Overall, Melzest™ makes it super-convenient to receive the full benefit of everything you want to take for your cold.

Manuka honey has been show to be an effective treatment for coughs, particularly tickly coughs. To stop coughing at night-time it is recommended that it is taken around 30 minutes before bedtime. Studies have shown that honey can be more effective than other cough medicines1-2. New Zealand manuka honey is famous for its antibacterial properties, which can help kill any bugs that are in the throat causing the cough.

Zinc can reduce the average length of a cold, especially when taken within 24 hours of the onset of symptoms. There is also good evidence that taking zinc on a regular basis can prevent colds occurring in the first place.

Vitamin C is well known to shorten the duration of cold symptoms. If taken on a regular basis it can also reduce the chance of getting colds, especially if doing a lot of exercise or being exposed to very
cold weather.

Lemon is loaded with vitamin C, which is known to support the body’s natural defences. Lemon juice is reported to decrease the strength of the cold and flu virus in the body and reduce phlegm. Like the honey, it is also very acidic which can help to kill the germs.

Antioxidants are widely accepted to help alleviate symptoms and even shorten the duration of a cold. The manuka honey, vitamin C and lemon juice all provide lots of these antioxidants.

Melzest™ is 100% natural. It is also safe for pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers. The unique dispensing pump makes it easy to measure the dose accurately.

Many products for colds contain paracetamol but it may not be obvious that they do so. This can mean that if you take additional paracetamol you may be taking too much, which can be dangerous. Melzest™ will make you feel better, but if you wish to take paracetamol as well, you can do so safely.
