ABOUT MANUKALIFE HONEY
Our Manuka honey is a result of one of the honey bee and her remarkable and dedicated work, foraging on Australia’s many native Manuka flowers. In Australia we are fortunate to have some of the healthiest bee populations in the world. Here at Manukalife we collect our honey from plantations spread across the southern parts of Western Australia. These pristine, natural environments allow our healthy bees to collect and produce honey of the highest quality. Our powerful Manuka honey is just as nature intended – pure, authentic and unadulterated.
MANUKA HONEY BENEFITS
Manuka honey is many times more active than other honeys as it contains considerably higher levels of enzymes and antibacterial properties. The medicinal properties of Manuka all come down to the flowers on the Manuka (Leptospermum) plants that the bees pollenate and turn into honey. Manuka Honey is one of the highest natural occurring antibacterial products. It has been documented to be bactericidal (kills bacteria), whereas most pharmaceutically derived antibiotics and topical treatments are considered to be bacteriostatic (halt the continued replication of bacteria only). Manuka honey contains many other properties which can be used to our benefit in a variety of ways.
WHAT MAKES MANUKA SO POWERFUL
The critical force behind the active antibacterial effect of Manuka honey is Methylglyoxal (MGO), contained in the nectar of the Leptospermum flowers on which our bees feed. The strength and potency of Manuka products is directly measurable by the level of MGO present.
