Straight from New Zealand! This type of honey is native to New Zealand, where the Manuka tree grows. We are so happy that we are now able to offer Manuka honey made by our friends at @zealandiahoney!
Manuka honey is SUPER medicinal! It is famously known for its anti-bacterial properties. Manuka honey is used to treat everything from a sore throat to healing wounds to clearing up acne. There is a lot of research highlighting the remarkable natural properties unique to this type of honey that are anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and gut promoting
The major naturally occurring anti-bacterial compound found in Manuka honey is methylglyoxal (MGO). @zealandiahoney undergoes extensive laboratory testing for measuring the MGO content in their honey and displays the amount of MGO on their labels so you know exactly how medicinal it is.
We especially love this company because they test for unwanted compounds that can be found in honey as a result of poor beekeeping or modern farming like pesticides, herbicides, and antibiotics. Just like us, @zealandiahoney has a zero tolerance policy for these unwanted compounds!
