Humans have used honey for its healing properties for thousands of years.
Manuka Honey is produced from bee's feeding on the pollen of the Leptospermum scoparium plant; known as "manuka" or "Tea tree," a species of flowering plant in the myrtle family (Myrtaceae), native to Australia and New Zealand.
The Australian native plants have powerful antibacterial properties. Methyglyoxal is the active ingredient in the honey responsible for these antibacterial effects.
Australian Manuka honey is the strongest antibacterial honey in the world as it has been scientifically proven to be highly active when independently tested for MGO, DHA and leptosperin - the natural components that give Manuka honey its power and prove its authenticity.
