What is Lifemel honey? What is its connection to life?
If linden honey is good for something, and acacia honey is good for something else, and echinacea honey is good for other something, how about if we would have a perfect honey, made from he most amazing flowers on this planet?
Well, some people did thought of this and created a special place where they cultivated selected herbs, away from any reach of pesticides and pollution. And then brought a lot of hives filled with healthy working bees, ready to produce the best honey. And in addition, fed the bees with enriched food, including iron, protein and vitamins.
The best honey?
Of course there is no such thing as the best honey, but considering the specific medicinal plants they cultivate there, the way bees are fed and taken care, it results a very good honey with high therapeutic properties.
Those smart people are from Kiryat Shmona, Israel, and they created this honey at Zuf Globus Laboratories Ltd, after thirty years’ research. The honey they created is very good for preventing and treating the side-effects of chemotherapy and radiation suffered by cancer patients, and thus tremendously improving their quality of life.

Any clinical trial?
One single small study was conducted in 2005, by Professor Jamal Ziden, head of the Oncology department in Sieff Hospital, Dr. Moshe Stein, Oncology department Rambam Hospital, and Professor Eitan Friedman of Sheba Medical Center.
Name of the trial: Lifemel Honey During Adjuvant Chemotherapy for Breast Cancer Patients to Prevent Leucopenia The study included 60 patients, older than 18 years old, with early breast cancer, who were receiving adjuvant chemotherapy with AC (adriamycin- cyclophosphamide) or CAF (adriamycin- cyclophosphamide- 5- fluorouracil) combinations. Every day these patients received one spoon of Lifemel honey or regular honey (double blind)- during the adjuvant chemotherapy.
Every week a WBC count was performed in order to record the influence of Lifemel on myelotoxicity.
Life Mel Honey was effective in decreasing the incidence of anemia in 64% of the patients, decreasing the incidence of severe neutropenia and lowering the incidence of potentially fatal thrombocytopenia (low platelets). Medical Oncology, vol. 23, no. 4, 549-552, 2006. The results were conclusive: LifeMel is effective and safe and showed improvement in general feeling and quality of life. According to lifemelusa.com.

Nevertheless there have been reported a lot of bad reviews, people were not that satisfied with the results. But as usual, there were also very good reviews, as there are these ones, here.
The scientific research available was done in 2005, only on female, over 18, all with breast cancer in phase 2, all taking certain chemo, and good results were in 64% of the patients. Since 2005, chemo has changed a lot. And there are also a lot of other cancer types which were not verified.
