Manuka Honey is harvested from some of the most remote and pristine regions of New Zealand from the flowers of our native Manuka tree. Naturally occurring Methylglyoxal is an ingredient present in Manuka honey. Manuka honey is produced in New Zealand by bees that pollinate the native manuka bush. Advocates say it treats wound infections and other conditions. *We guarantee that all our Manuka honey is tested and verified from independent accredited laboratories for its Methylglyoxal content.
HEALING POWER OF HONEY
Honey has been used since ancient times to treat multiple conditions. It wasn’t until the late 19th century that researchers discovered that honey has natural antibacterial qualities. Honey protects against damage caused by bacteria. Some honey also stimulates production of special cells that can repair tissue damaged by infection. In addition, honey has an anti-inflammatory action that can quickly reduce pain and inflammation once it is applied. But not all honey is the same. The antibac- terial quality of honey depends on the type of honey as well as when and how it’s harvested. Some kinds of honey may be 100 times more potent than others Components of Manuka Honey Hydro- gen peroxide is a component of honey. It gives most honey its antibiotic quality. But some types of honey, including manuka honey, also have other components with antibacterial qualities. The major antibacterial component in manuka honey is methylglyoxal (MGO). MGO is a compound found in most types of honey, but usually only in small quantities. In Manuka honey, MGO comes from the conversion of another compound -- dihydroxyacetone -- that is found in high concentration in the nectar of manuka flowers. MGO is thought to give manuka honey its antibacterial power. The higher the concentration of MG, the stronger the antibiotic effect. Honey producers have developed a scale for rating the potency of manuka honey.
