In this winter wellness blog, we will explore the brief history of Mānuka and the many benefits that have come since the discovery of pure Mānuka honey, and how incorporating it into your winter routine can be beneficial to your day while leaving a delicious taste on the tongue. 

How Has The Mānuka Tree Been Used In History? 

The Mānuka tree, also known as Leptospermum scoparium, is a native plant of New Zealand and has a long and fascinating history of traditional use by the native Māori people.

For hundreds of years, the Māori had used various parts of the Mānuka tree for medicinal purposes, including the bark, leaves, and flowers. The practice of Rongoa Māori is still commonly used among the present-day Māori community.

One of the most common traditional uses of the Mānuka tree was for treating wounds and skin infections. The Māori would prepare dressings and ointments using the bark and leaves of the tree, which were applied to wounds to promote healing and prevent infection. The Mānuka tree contains compounds with supposed antimicrobial properties that were suggested to kill harmful bacteria and fungi.

Is UMF Mānuka Honey Best For Winter Wellness? 

UMF™ (Unique Mānuka Factor) is a grading system that measures the antibacterial potency of Mānuka honey.

The UMF™ rating system is a measure of the concentration of the compound methylglyoxal (MGO), which is responsible for Mānuka honey's unique properties. The higher the UMF™ rating, the higher the concentration of MGO and the more potent the antibacterial activity of the honey.

The UMF™ grading system sets high-quality standards for Mānuka honey. This ensures that the honey is pure, authentic, and free from any additives or contaminants - the ideal checklist to ensure you’re getting the very best Mānuka honey for your winter wellness.

How Can I Enjoy Raw Mānuka Honey This Winter? 

  • As A Natural Sweetener

  • One of the easiest ways to enjoy Mānuka honey is as a natural sweetener. It can be used to sweeten tea or coffee, drizzled over pancakes or waffles, or added to smoothies for a healthy boost of sweetness.

  • As a Spread

  • Mānuka honey can also be enjoyed as a spread on toast, bread, or crackers. It pairs well with nut butter, cheese, or fruit, and makes a delicious and healthy snack.

  • In Baking

  • Mānuka honey can be used in baking to add natural sweetness and moisture to recipes. It works well in muffins, cakes, and cookies, and can also be used as a substitute for sugar or other sweeteners.

  • By The Spoon

  • A teaspoon or two a day of monofloral Mānuka honey is sufficient to enjoy the unique benefits without excessive consumption of calories or unwanted compounds found in other snacks. It is also important to note that children under the age of one should not consume Mānuka honey, due to premature health risks.
