  • 4 Health Benefits of Manuka honey Supported by Science

    Honey, in general, has been used in health through history, only falling out of medical favour in the 1900s with the rise of modern antibiotics (1). With the increased use of antibiotics and antibacterial products more and more bugs are becoming resistant to current treatments (2). Attempts to make bugs resistant to Manuka honey (NPA 15+, MGO 550+ mg/kg) have failed, even when using diluted honey (4.0–14.8% honey) (2).
  • Therapeutic Manuka Honey: No Longer So Alternative

    Medicinal honey research is undergoing a substantial renaissance. From a folklore remedy largely dismissed by mainstream medicine as “alternative”, we now see increased interest by scientists, clinical practitioners and the general public in the therapeutic uses of honey. There are a number of drivers of this interest: first, the rise in antibiotic resistance by many bacterial pathogens has prompted interest in developing and using novel antibacterials; second, an increasing number of reliable studies and case reports have demonstrated that certain honeys are very effective wound treatments; third, therapeutic honey commands a premium price, and the honey industry is actively promoting studies that will allow it to capitalize on this; and finally, the very complex and rather unpredictable nature of honey provides an attractive challenge for laboratory scientists. In this paper we review manuka honey research, from observational studies on its antimicrobial effects through to current experimental and mechanistic work that aims to take honey into mainstream medicine.

  • What is ULF/NPA/MGO?

    Some Leptospermum or Jellybush plants are known to produce a unique type of honey (Australian MANUKA) that not only has the hydrogen peroxide releasing enzymes but also a non-hydrogen peroxide (NPA) antibacterial property. We use the Australian quality symbol + ULF to represent the NPA level of activity and it is our guarantee that our honey has been tested and verified by independent laboratories for genuine activity.
