What is Manuka honey? This is our most frequently asked question. Let us describe what Manuka honey is, why you should incorporate into your wellness routine and why you will love this powerful superfood.
The Manuka bush, native to New Zealand, and its nectar contains dihydroxyacetone (DHA). When the bees pollinate this bush, they convert the DHA (using enzymes in their spit) to methylglyoxal, or MGO for short. The MGO is what gives Manuka honey its unique antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. It’s also what makes Manuka honey one of the rarest and most sought out honeys in the world.
A study in 2008 by researchers at Waikato University found that the ‘non-peroxide’ antimicrobial activity in Manuka honey (i.e. the antibacterial properties) was directly correlated with its MGO levels. Therefore, the higher the MGO, the more antiviral and antibacterial properties the honey contains. Due to the antibacterial properties in Manuka honey, many people use it to soothe respiratory infections, boost digestive health and improve immunity.
Manuka honey is the base of all the blends we create so you can enjoy the taste and benefits of this unique honey. We use Manuka honey sourced directly from New Zealand where it is lab tested and certified pure Manuka honey.
Try adding one of our signature honeyblends into your morning drink for daily immunity support. Or at the first sign of a scratchy throat, take a spoonful of the blend. It is also a great way to boost kids immunity because they beg for more. Manuka honey and Manuka Mana were our daughters first two letter words, so you could say we are a family fan of this golden goodness 🍯 😊.
