The benefits of Manuka honey 22+

Manuka honey is one of the most nutritious types of honey available. Containing four times the amount of nutritional content as any other kind of honey, it is understandable why this honey is so revered. Vitamins, minerals and amino acids are abundant. It’s both lower in calories and provides a more balanced energy release than processed sugar (sucrose). 

What many do not already know, is that genuine Manuka honey is scientifically backed for its medicinal properties as well. With Manuka honey 22+ being one of the highest UMF ratings available. This means it benefits from a higher level of natural potency

With the antiviral, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, it can help soothe sore throats and promote healthy immune function. This special type of honey is also incorporated in  advanced wound dressings applied topically to wounds, burns and scars to boost the natural healing process. 

High-quality Manuka honey benefits from being a natural humectant. This means that it helps draw in and retain moisture. As a result, it’s is great for skin ailments such as acne and dry skin. It can be used as a mask or cleanser. 

There have also been studies showing the benefits of consuming the best quality Manuka honey. It can improve digestion by discouraging unhealthy gut bacteria and provides a prebiotic for the healthy bacteria living in our gut to thrive. 

What makes the UMF rating of 22+ so beneficial? 

In 1980, Dr Peter Molan discovered the antibacterial properties of pure Manuka honey in New Zealand. This then created the start of the development of the Unique Manuka Factor rating (UMF).  The UMF rating is a quality mark assurance to identify what makes the honey of a Manuka variety. This requires regulation and quality testing.

The test identifies four chemical markers from the nectar and one DNA marker from the pollen. One of the main components that make this honey so unique is methylglyoxal (MGO). This is what gives Manuka its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It is a naturally occurring compound in authentic NZ Manuka honey. 

A higher UMF rating means a more potent batch of honey and higher MGO levels.
