Active Manuka Honey NZ For Good HEALTH

Another unique New Zealand product

This unique New Zealand honey might be one of nature’s most powerful treasures. Produced by bees using nectar from the flowers of Manuka trees, which are native to New Zealand, manuka honey is rich in powerful health benefits.

It is the only entirely natural food in the world shown to display effective, reliable antibacterial activity due to the presence of the active compound dietary methylglyoxal (MGO).

Dietary MGO forms naturally in the nectar of Manuka flowers and boasts powerful antibacterial properties. Here at Lovely Health, we offer a range of high-quality, natural Manuka flower honey products rich in MGO, bottled right here in beautiful New Zealand.

What are MGO and UMF?

To understand the quality of a jar of Manuka nectar honey, you need to understand what UMF and MGO ratings mean.

These labelling standards were created to assure consumers that you’re getting a high-quality version of this incredible natural compound. The higher the UMF and MGO of a jar of this unique New Zealand honey, the purer and higher quality it is.

UMF stands for the Unique Manuka Factor. In addition to testing for the levels of methylglyoxal in a batch of honey, UMF also assesses its levels of dihydroxyacetone (DHA) and leptosperin, a compound unique to Manuka honey. High levels of all three compounds indicate that a batch comprises high-quality, authentic Manuka flower honey.

Rich in diverse natural nutrients, vitamins and minerals, this native New Zealand honey is far more than just a sweet addition to a bowl of yoghurt or piece of toast. It boasts potent compounds that give it incredible antibacterial, antiviral and antioxidant properties and make it one of the most biologically active and beneficial kinds of honey for human health.

The benefits of this incredible honey are almost limitless. Manuka honey has been shown to:

Aid Wound Healing

Diverse civilisations have used honey to help treat wounds for centuries. It has also been used to assist in the healing process of burns, sores and boils – and now science supports what tradition has known.

In the late 2000s, the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the use of Manuka flower honey to treat wound healing. Studies have shown that it doesn’t just help heal wounds – it can even decrease pain in people suffering from burns.

How does this incredible honey do this? The MGO present in the honey equips it with natural antibacterial properties. When these combine with the moist environment and protective barrier it creates, potential infection is prevented, helping wounds to heal.

Boost Oral Health

If you want a healthy mouth full of beautiful, shining teeth, you need to make sure harmful bacteria stay out. Nasty bacteria cause plaque formation in the mouth, which can lead to tooth decay and damage to your gums.

Manuka honey has been shown to minimise harmful oral bacteria, helping improve the health of your mouth, teeth and gums. It has been shown even to reduce gingivitis.

But are you concerned about consuming rich, sweet honey? Unlike candy and refined sugar, Manuka floral honey has not been shown to contribute to cavities or tooth decay. This may be because of its inherent antibacterial effects.

Relieve Sore Throats

This New Zealand honey’s antiviral and antibacterial properties allow it to attack the bacteria that cause the pain associated with a sore throat. That helps reduce inflammation and the pain itself.

In addition, smooth, luxuriant Manuka honey coats the sensitive inner lining of the throat, helping soothe and relieve anyone down with a nasty cough or cold.

Prevent Gastric Ulcers

Stomach ulcers are, unfortunately, a widespread condition. While often associated with stress, most stomach ulcers are the result of the H. Pylori bacterium. Research has shown that Manuka nectar honey’s antibacterial properties can help it treat such ulcers.

While not conclusively proven, studies have also suggested that this honey may even help treat stomach ulcers caused by alcohol, although more research is needed in this area.

Improve Digestion

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is associated with an unpleasant range of symptoms, including constipation, diarrhea, abdominal pain and irregular bowel movements. But Manuka honey may be able to help decrease them, according to research.

That isn’t the only area of digestive health this incredible honey can help protect. It has been shown to attack strains of the nasty bacteria C. diff, which is notorious for causing severe bowel inflammation and diarrhea.

As you can see, Manuka flower honey is far more than a pretty addition to your pantry. This incredible natural substance boosts a powerful range of healing properties that will sweeten up your life – not just your breakfast.
