The antibacterial properties of New Zealand Manuka honey could be the natural, bacteria-bashing remedy that you’ve been looking for. We recommend discovering what Manuka honey is all about.
Manuka honey, such as this MGO 55-strength product from Manuka Doctor can be taken in a spoon, added to your meal or dissolved in water or perhaps a smoothie, and can even be applied to the skin. The natural antibacterial elements of the honey can alleviate sore throats and be applied to cuts and grazes.
The all-important MGO (Methylglyoxal) numbers on the bottle of Manuka Honey, apply to its antibacterial strength and it comes from DHA, a naturally present element in the nectar of the Manuka Bush. Within the hive DHA undergoes the Maillard reaction to form MGO.
100% certified by the New Zealand government, bees collect pollen mainly from an indigenous New Zealand plant known as the Manuka bush (Leptospermum Scoparium), however the source of this product is ‘multifloral’ as bees often go further afield within the area and interact with other types of plants.
If you’re after hive-to-home honey that’s New Zealand approved and tested in the laboratory, then Manuka Doctor Manuka honey at Holland & Barrett comes highly recommended.
