Health Benefits of Manuka Honey
All natural pure honey has antibacterial properties, but what makes Manuka honey superior to other honeys? It's the presence of Methylglyoxal (MGO), a natural occurring organic compound found in Manuka honey.
Methylglyoxal (MGO) has substantial antibacterial and antiviral properties. It derives from the conversion of another compound in Manuka honey known as dihydroxyacetone (DHA). This naturally forms in the flower nectar of the Leptospermum, Manuka plant, ready for collection by the honey-bees.
Many people are familiar with New Zealand Manuka honey but perhaps unaware that Australia has native Manuka honey.
This precious honey is product from the blossoms of the Leptospermum species plant (as well as the Bees). The Leptospermum species is native to south-east Australia and New Zealand. In fact, Australia has over 80 native species of the Leptospermum plant.
Antibacterial properties exist in all natural pure honey, but the Manuka variety has exceptionally strong antibacterial properties due to the presence of dietary Methylglyoxal (MGO). The higher Manuka's MGO grade rating, the more antibacterial properties it has, as well as its health benefits.
Humans have used honey for its healing properties for thousands of years.
Studies over the years have shown Manuka honey has powerful healing properties with elevated levels of antiviral, antifungal, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties. Thanks to Manuka’s antibacterial properties, it may assist with digestion, skin disorders, ageing, immunity, gastric ulcers, gingivitis, influenza, and cold relief. Over many years Manuka honey has been use as a topical treatment.
