MAGIC OF MANUKA: Add a spoonful to your tea, spread over toast, or guiltlessly enjoy straight from the jar.
MEASURING THE MAGIC: We judge Manuka honey based on the quantity of (MG) methylglyoxal, the 'magic Manuka ingredient', for a precise measurement of potency and quality.
MG is a compound found in most types of honey, but usually only in small quantities. In Manuka Honey, MG comes from the conversion of another compound -- dihydroxyacetone -- that is found in high concentration in the nectar of Manuka flowers. MG gives Manuka Honey its increased antibacterial power. The higher the concentration of MG, the stronger the antibiotic effect. This is often referred to the UMF (Unique Manuka Factor). Taken internally, UMF Manuka Honey is very effective in helping relieve stomach ulcer symptoms and gastritis, and when applied topically it assists the natural healing of skin ulcers, wounds, burns, cracked skin, even MRSA.
In laboratory studies UMF Manuka Honey has been found to be effective against a wide range of bacteria including the very resistant helicobacter pylori (this bacteria causes most Escherichia coli, streptococcus pyogenes stomach ulcers), the wound-infecting bacteria staphylococcus aureus and (causes sore throats).
Studies also show that UMF Manuka Honey is excellent for relieving sore throats and improves oral hygiene.
