Certified UMF10+ mānuka honey is great for helping with indigestion, supporting the immune system and promoting general health and wellbeing.
It can be taken internally to help with digestion, as a natural remedy for sore throats, gingivitis, tonsillitis, and helping to prevent dental plaque from growing. More recently, mānuka honey has gained popularity as a skincare treatment - to help with acne, rosacea and other skin abnormalities.
Mānuka honey contains a compound called methylglyoxal (MGO), which provides much higher levels of antibacterial activity than normal honeys. It has been proven to be effective in treating a wide range of bacteria (including MRSA), and can also be used to help with the natural healing of cuts and wounds.
UMF (Unique Mānuka Factor) is a quality mark which certifies that honey has been independently tested for its level of MGO content, and has been produced and packed in New Zealand. The UMF rating of each jar of honey is directly related to the level of MGO present within the honey (higher UMF ratings = stronger MGO concentration).
