Kikta pe (keek-tah pay) means “wake up” in the Lakota language.
Ingredients: organic raw honey infused with nettle, lemon balm, and ginger root
Use: mix this infused honey into your morning tea, coffee, pour onto your toast or pancakes at breakfast, or eat it straight from the jar for an added boost of caffeine-free energy to keep you awake and focused throughout the day. The Kikta Pe Honey helps to naturally increase your body's energy by regulating your nervous system, easing digestive discomfort, and improving cardiovascular health, and more!
The organic raw honey used in all of Lakota Made's infused honey products is sourced from Lakota Honey Lodge, which is based on the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota.
Medicinal benefits of organic raw honey
Raw honey contains an array of plant chemicals that act as antioxidants. The phytonutrients in honey are responsible for its antioxidant properties, as well as its antibacterial and antifungal power. They’re also thought to be the reason raw honey has shown immune-boosting and anticancer benefits. Heavy processing destroys these valuable nutrients, which is why we only use raw honey in our medicinal infused honey products.
Medicinal benefits of nettle
Stinging nettle leaves provide a wide variety of nutrients, including but not limited to vitamins A, C, K, and B, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and sodium. Nettle is anti-inflammatory, optimizes digestion, and is a powerful antioxidant, which is why it is commonly used in herbal teas. When infused into our Kikta Pe honey, it creates a gentle detox and provides nutrients that can elevate your energy throughout the day.
Medicinal benefits of lemon balm
Lemon balm is part of the mint family, and is widely used as a night-time tea because it's scientifically proven to help calm the nervous system and ease anxiety. However, when used with the other medicinal herbs in our Kikta Pe Honey, the stress-reducing effects of lemon balm help your body to allocate your energy throughout the day, rather than only providing short bursts of energy. Lemon balm has also been proven to improve focus and memory.
Medicinal benefits of ginger root
Ginger root is famous for its abilities to ease digestive discomfort, reduce nausea, and promote gut health. Ginger can also aid in easing headache and migraine pain. We use ginger root in our Kikta Pe Honey because it helps to increase your body's blood flow, which naturally boosts your energy levels. Along with increasing blood flow, another potential cardiovascular benefit of ginger is blood glucose modulation.
