Manuka honey is effective and reliable
Manuka honey is the only 100% natural food in the world shown to have EFFECTIVE and RELIABLE anti-bacterial activity due to the active compound – Dietary Methylglyoxal which forms naturally in the manuka plant. Manuka Health measures methylglyoxal content based on standards developed by University of Dresden. The higher the MGO™ Manuka honey rating the higher the level of anti-bacterial activity in the honey.
100% Pure New Zealand Manuka Honey
Manuka Honey is collected from a plant that is unique to New Zealand – Leptospermum scoparium. The white flowers appear in spring and are much loved by the honey bees. Manuka flowers have a strong, aromatic fragrance and are full of the nectar which provides this dark, creamy honey.
Manuka honey has many benefits
As well as providing the well-known benefits of natural honey against winter ills and chills, the MGO™ Manuka honeys can support digestive health, wound healing and healthy skin.
Manuka honey can be used every day
MGO™ Manuka honey is suitable for everyday use and can be used as a long-term maintenance dose. It can be taken by eating or application to the skin surface. You will find it has a wonderful taste all of its own and can be enjoyed the same as any other natural honey.
Manuka honey has strong anti-bacterial properties
MGO™ Manuka Honey is labelled based on the minimum Methylglyoxal content (mg/kg) it contains. As Methylglyoxal is the active compound directly responsible for the antibacterial activity of Manuka honey, the higher the Methylglyoxal content of MGO™ Manuka Honey, the stronger the antibacterial activity.
Measuring Unique Reliable Activity of MGO™ Manuka Honey
Manuka Health measures methylglyoxal content based on standards developed by University of Dresden (Germany), who discovered this active compound in manuka honey. For example, MGO™ 100 Manuka Honey has been tested and is certified to contain at least 100mg/kg of dietary methylglyoxal, the minimum required for health benefits.
