What makes Manuka honey so special?

Antimicrobial Properties

Manuka honey contains a compound called methylglyoxal (MGO), which is responsible for its potent antimicrobial activity. MGO has been shown to exhibit antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties. This may help in fighting off infections and supporting the body's defense against pathogens. There have been studies that have shown Manuka honey to be strong enough to eradicate Staphylococcus and MRSA when used topically. When consumed, many have found relief from Gastritis, along with other stomach issues.

Anti-Inflammatory Effects

Chronic inflammation can weaken the immune system. Manuka honey has been reported to possess anti-inflammatory properties such as Leptosperin, which may help reduce inflammation in the body and contribute to overall immune system health.

Antioxidant Content

Manuka honey is rich in antioxidants, including flavonoids and polyphenols. Antioxidants play a crucial role in neutralizing free radicals in the body, which can contribute to oxidative stress and compromise the immune system. By providing antioxidants, Manuka honey may help maintain a balanced immune response.

Stimulation of Immune Cells

Some studies suggest that Manuka honey may stimulate the production and activity of immune cells, such as macrophages and monocytes. These cells are essential components of the immune system responsible for identifying and eliminating foreign invaders.

Prebiotic Effects

Manuka honey serves as a prebiotic, promoting the growth and activity of beneficial bacteria in the gut. A healthy gut microbiota is closely linked to a robust immune system, as a significant portion of the immune cells resides in the gastrointestinal tract.

Our highest MGO and UMF grading for the most potent benefits...

What is UMF?

It is an unfortunate fact that most Manuka honey brands out there are selling fake or adulterated manuka honey. There have been several reports that indicate that anywhere from 50%-80% of the manuka honey jars being sold are falsely advertising the contents of their honey. The New Zealand Prime Ministry has partnered with the UMFHA to regulate the exportation of their most valuable natural commodity. The stringent tests set forth by the UMFHA on UMF™ trademarked manuka products ensure that not only is the quality high, but the MGO grading of the honey is true, guaranteeing potency. The higher the MGO, the higher the UMF grading. It’s designed to validate mānuka honey potency, authenticity, purity, shelf life and freshness for honey producers, brands, customers and consumers around the world. This is why you can NEVER trust any brand that uses an alternative "grading" system, or one without the UMF™ stamp of approval. UMF™ is the only New Zealand approved and globally recognized standard independently assuring the quality of New Zealand mānuka honey so consumers around the world can be confident in the strength and purity of each jar they buy.
