Manuka honey benefitsyour general wellbeing by supporting your health. Manuka Honey is sourced from New Zealand’s remote, pollution free forests and is renowned for its unique flavour and health benefits. The bees feed off the Manuka plant (Leptospermum scoparium) which has delicate pink or white flowers and is native to New Zealand.
While we have been aware for centuries of the antibacterial properties of all types of honey, specific Manuka honey benefits have been shown in laboratory studies have to include an especially remarkable antibacterial property, found only in the Leptospermum species. This has been called the Unique Manuka Factor or UMF®. UMF® Manuka Honey is totally natural and has been enjoyed for its own unique flavour for many years, why don’t you discover the amazing taste of nature’s great gift and request a free sample of Manuka honey. Benefits are said to help improve a wide range of common ailments.
Laboratory studies have shown that one of the UMF® Manuka Honey health benefits is being effective against a wide range of bacteria.
UMF® stands for ‘Unique Manuka Factor’, a measure of the unique type of antibacterial activity which is naturally present at varying levels in honey made from the nectar of the Manuka bush, native to New Zealand. The type of Manuka Honey which has a high enough level of this antibacterial property to warrant carrying the UMF® trademark, is highly sought-after, these Manuka honey heath benefits are not present in products not carrying the UMF® seal of approval.
UMF® is the registered name and trademark of AMHA (Active Manuka Honey Association) and can be used only by licensed users who meet set criteria which includes the monitoring and auditing of honey quality.
