Mānuka Honey is a perfect product from nature. Mānuka Honey has powerful antibacterial and antifungal characteristics. Mānuka products are being used to actively maintain good health (maintenance and prevention), and, if your health (temporarily) lets you down, where possible to play an active (supporting) role in relief and/or recovery. The level of MGO (Methylglyoxal) content of Mānuka Honey is the most important indicator for measuring the healing effectiveness of Mānuka Honey. There is a range of systems for rating this healing effectiveness. The UMF® (!! attend to the ® !!) logo, however, is the only officially recognized Mānuka Honey quality mark. A clarification of the different systems for rating the healing effectiveness of Mānuka Honey can be found on our web-page MĀNUKA-HONEY, THE MĀNUKA HONEY QUALITY MARK. By fiddling with numbers, incorrect comparative UMF (indeed, without the ®) values are often used to specify the healing effectiveness of Mānuka Honey’s without UMF® license. Sometimes even a non-existing UMF® license is suggested. With the direct web-links on our web-page MĀNUKA-HONEY,THE MĀNUKA HONEYQUALITYMARK the available information can quickly and easily be checked on the relevant web-pages of the UMF® Mānuka HoneyAssociation.
Mānuka Honey is created when honeybees gather the nectar of the Mānuka flower (Leptospermum Scoparium). The Mānuka flower is the blossom of the Mānuka Bush. The Mānuka Bush can grow into a tree of up to 15 meters. Mānuka Honey is a monofloral honey. This means that Mānuka Honey is only allowed to be labelled Mānuka Honey if most (at least 70%) of the honey originates from the Mānuka flower. The best quality Mānuka Honey comes from beehives that are placed amidst an abundance of Mānuka bushes in unspoilt nature of inhospitable areas in New Zealand. On these locations the honeybees hardly have another choice than gathering the nectar of the Mānuka flowers. The Mānuka Honey collected in these areas is the finest, purest, most natural Mānuka Honey.
