Manuka Honey is a perfect product from nature. Manuka Honey has powerful antibacterial and antifungal characteristics. Manuka 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 Manuka Honey is the most important indicator for measuring the healing effectiveness of Manuka Honey. There is a range of systems for rating this healing effectiveness. The UMF® (!! attend to the ® !!) logo, however, is the only officially recognized Manuka Honey quality mark. A clarification of the different systems for rating the healing effectiveness of Manuka Honey can be found on our web-page MANUKA-HONEY, THE MANUKAHONEY QUALITY MARK. By fiddling with numbers, incorrect comparative UMF (indeed, without the ®) values are often used to specify the healing effectiveness of Manuka Honey’s without UMF® license. Sometimes even a non-existing UMF® license is suggested. With the direct web-links on our web-page MANUKA-HONEY,THE MANUKAHONEYQUALITYMARK the available information can quickly and easily be checked on the relevant web-pages of the UMF® Manuka HoneyAssociation.
Manuka Honey is created when honeybees gather the nectar of the Manuka flower (Leptospermum Scoparium). The Manuka flower is the blossom of the Manuka Bush. The Manuka Bush can grow into a tree of up to 15 meters. Manuka Honey is a monofloral honey. This means that Manuka Honey is only allowed to be labelled Manuka Honey if most (at least 70%) of the honey originates from the Manuka flower. The best quality Manuka Honey comes from beehives that are placed amidst an abundance of Manuka 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 Manuka flowers. The Manuka Honey collected in these areas is the finest, purest, most natural Manuka Honey.
