Manuka

Manuka honey is sourced from the flowers and nectar of some of the leptospermum or Manuka species (leptospermum polygalifolium, scoparium etc). Active manuka honey has pronounced anti-bacterial/microbial and other health-giving properties that don't dissipate during storage or under light. It also tastes delicious with a rich, malty flavour; and it has a lovely dark amber texture.

Tennis champion, Novak Djokovic swears by it. He has a teaspoonful every morning and says it gives him added energy and vitality. Active manuka honey can also help with upset stomachs and as a topical treatments for skin ailments.

Not all manuka honey is bio-active. But reputable honey producers send their manuka honey for laboratory testing. Testing shows how much of the natural active ingredient - methylglyoxal - is in the honey. The test result also determines the rating shown on the jar. An MGO rating of 100+ is probably the minimum necessary to notice any health impact.  100+ means the honey has a concentration of around 100mgs of methylglyoxal per kilo. Other honey companies use the older Unique Manuka Factor (UMF) rating system. A UMF rating of 10+ may be considered equivalent to an MGO rating of 100+.  UMF is now sometimes known as the Molan Gold Standard, znd is named after the NZ scientist who first identified the non-peroxide anti-bacterial properties of Active manuka honey. (Note: Some honey companies give a 'Total Activity' or TA measure instead of the UMF or MGO rating.)
