The Buzz about Manuka Honey
Manuka is a unique medicinal honey with beneficial antioxidant and antibacterial properties. It is a monofloral honey produced from the nectar of the Manuka bush (Leptospermum scoparium), which is indigenous to New Zealand.
To date, Manuka honey is the only known type of honey where its antibacterial properties remain effectively intact even upon contact with enzymes in our saliva, stomach and other body fluids.
Benefits of Manuka Honey:
- Improve immunity
- Boost energy and vitality
- Improve speed of wound healing
- Soothe sore throat
- Relieve digestive issues
- Improve skin tone and texture
- Enhance sleep quality
- Improve dental health
Studies have also shown that Manuka honey stimulates immune cells, and stopped the growth of sore throat-causing Strep bacteria, which is why many benefit by taking a spoonful of honey when they don’t feel well!
What does the UMF mark stand for?
UMF stands for Unique Manuka Factor, which is a quality mark of assurance indicating that the batch of honey has been independently tested for its purity and quality.
The corresponding number next to the UMF, also known as the UMF grade, indicates the levels of the unique signature compounds (Leptosperin, DHA and Methylglyoxal) present in the jar of honey. The higher the UMF grade, the greater the presence of the unique Manuka honey attributes.
However, the selection of UMF grade should vary according to your purpose. A lower UMF grade (e.g. UMF® 8+) is recommended for people who wish to enjoy the general benefits of Manuka honey for overall maintenance, while a higher UMF grade (e.g. UMF® 23+) would be suitable for people looking for a higher and more therapeutic dosage to treat.
