Certified UMF15+ mānuka honey is great for helping with digestive health, supporting the immune system and promoting general wellbeing. It can be taken internally as a natural remedy for sore throats, gingivitis, tonsillitis, and helping to prevent dental plaque from growing. It is also great for natural skincare - helping with acne, rosacea, redness and other minor skin conditions. People often use genuine mānuka honey as an rejuviating face mask.
Mānuka honey contains a compound called methylglyoxal (MGO), which provides much higher levels of antibacterial activity than other types of honey. It has been proven to be effective at destroying 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 that the honey contains. Higher UMF levels indicate higher levels of effectiveness and health benefits.
