New Zealand Manuka honey has been the focus of extensive worldwide scientific research with clear evidence now validating its unique healing properties, setting it apart from all other honeys. This is a secret that the Māori people of New Zealand have know about for generations, using the entire Manuka bush for weapons, food, oral care, medicine, and wound healing.
Antibacterial: Methylglyoxal is the active ingredient in Manuka honey and is responsible for the anti-bacterial effect.
Anti-microbial: Studies have shown broad spectrum antimicrobial effects due to the low pH of Manuka honey.
Anti-viral: Manuka honey has compounds and enzymes that boost our immune system and protect from viruses.
Anti-inflammatory: Manuka honey & Manuka oil (from the leaves), at the right concentration, can reduce redness and block substances in the body that cause inflammation. Manuka oil can also reduce inflammation and aid in repair of fungal complaints.
Antioxidant: Our bodies need to maintain a balance between free radicals and antioxidants. When not balanced, it leads to oxidative stress. Manuka honey is a powerful antioxidant both orally and topically naturally balancing our bodies.
Manuka honey, combining nature and science, is a superfood for your skin and gut with many healing and balancing qualities.
