What is Manuka Honey?
Manuka honey is produced when bees gather the nectar from the flowers of the Manuka bush, also known as Tea Tree bush or more specifically, Leptospermum scoparium.
The Manuka bush (Leptospermum scoparium) is native to New Zealand and Southeast Australia, including Tasmania.
Manuka is the name used in both New Zealand and Australia. ‘Tea tree’ is a common name in Australia and to a lesser extent also in New Zealand. This name arose because Captain Cook used the leaves to make a ‘tea’ drink.
Manuka honey is distinctively flavoured, darker and richer in taste than clover honey, and has strong antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. The finest quality Manuka honey with the most potent antimicrobial properties is produced from hives placed in wild, uncultivated areas with abundant growth of Manuka bushes.
What is Methylglyoxal (MGO)
It is generally recognized that there are a number of bio-active constituents in all honeys but Manuka honey has been shown to contain Methylglyoxal, a very active component which has been proven in laboratory tests to have effective antibiotic and antifungal properties.
The level of the Methylglyoxal in the honey you buy is very important. The Methylglyoxal content is a major factor in how effective the Manuka honey will be in your health program.
Most persons familiar with the use of Manuka honey think that the level of Methylgloyxal should be at least 100mg of MGO per kg of honey. This is where the “100+” number on the label comes from.
Benefits of Manuka Honey
Manuka honey is probably becoming most well-known for its wound healing properties for, when applied directly to a wound, it may improve the healing process and decrease pain. Rather than mentioning what i believe are amazing medicinal properties, I believe you can do a Google search and find these out for yourself. Suffice to say, it has proven medicinal properties.
Manuka Honey – Precautions
There are a few precautions with Manuka honey for treating various ailments and health conditions. Any kind of honey isn’t suitable for babies under 12 months of age because it is a known source of the bacteria spores that cause botulism. Also, if you have an allergic reaction to pollen, or other bee-related allergies, then honey can cause allergic reaction.
