What is Manuka Honey?

¨is honey produced in Australia and New Zealand from the nectar of the Manuka tree. The honey

is commonly sold as an alternative medicine.

¨is produced by introduced European honey bees (Apis mellifera) feeding on the Manuka or tea

tree (Leptospermum scoparium) which grows uncultivated throughout New Zealand and

southeastern Australia.

Why is Active Manuka Honey So Unique?

¨Bees have developed a unique preservative system for honey. They inject an enzyme that

protects it from bacterial degradation. As long as no air or water can get into the honey it will

last for thousands of years. Honey found in the pharaohs tombs in sealed jars was still edible

Manuka flower which provide a second and more effective preservative system, now known as

Manuka Honey from different plants not only had activity against different bacteria but also

that plants in different areas produced Manuka Honey with different levels.

¨In his research he found that the different levels of activity had different and varied effects with

respect to human health and wellness. For example a lower activity honeys were excellent for

gastric health, the mid range activities were better suited to immune function improvement and

the highest levels were excellent for assisting with repair of skin conditions ranging from burns

through to bacterial infections and also common cuts and abrasions.
