MANUKA HONEY’S IMMUNITY BENEFITS
What makes Manuka Honey unique?
Manuka Honey is a unique honey made by bees from the nectar of the New Zealand Manuka tree. Research shows that Manuka Honey has remarkable natural qualities that set it apart from other honeys. It’s the Manuka flower nectar that gives Manuka honey its special qualities.
HOW DOES IT HELP BOOST IMMUNE HEALTH?
A study investigating the effect of Manuka Honey on sore throats found that it reduced bacterial growth as well as having anti-inflammatory properties and an effective treatment for coughs.
What distinguishes Manuka Honey from other types of honey is the presence of methylglyoxal (MGO) in a high concentration - the higher its concentration, the greater the anti-bacterial effect, and its potency to enhance good health and prevent illness.
WHAT ARE THE BEST BRANDS TO LOOK OUT FOR?
Choosing the best Manuka Honey can be confusing. Pure Manuka Honey will have a quality trademark which is internationally verified and recognised. Both MGO and UMF are trusted Manuka Honey grading systems and are found on the label of reputable brands.
Some of the most delicious and well-established brands on sale in health shops include Manuka Health, Comvita and Watson & Son.
Spoon it, slather it, drizzle it, stir it - Manuka honey is versatile, simple to use and tastes delicious.
