How Kelulut Honey by KALIA Helps You Feel Better?

Kelulut, or honey in general, has been traditionally used in ancient therapies to help heal and restore health.  It is known as Mother of Medicine for its therapeutic, medicinal, and nutritive properties, often for fighting off infections, wound healing, and boosting immunity. 

In Malaysia, the available honey includes Kelulut, Tualang, Gelam, and Accacia.  In contrast to other local honey varieties, Kelulut Honey is produced by stingless bees.

Kelulut Honey by KALIA is produced by the stingless bees from the Trigona species.  Honey produced by stingless bees is stored in clusters of small resin pots (note: resembles the French cream puff profiterole) , as opposed to honey that is produced by normally found bees which is stored in hexagonal-shaped combs.

Kelulut Honey contains 16 amino acids, trehalulose, vitamins A, B, C, D and E, bioflavonoids and minerals. It is reported to have higher antioxidant activities and medicinal properties, from the variety of plants and herbs that the bees visit to collect their nectar.
