Manuka Honey - What is it and What is it Good for?

Manuka Honey is a unique honey found in New Zealand and Australia. The Manuka tree (Leptospermum scoparium) flowers for only 2-6 weeks of the year making it an extremely rare honey to produce.

Traditional medicine has used Manuka Honey for hundreds of years on a broad range of ailments like immunity, digestion, skin care, and oral health. One of it's powerful properties is a anti-bacterial compound called Methylglyoxal (MGO) - which is said to be responsible for the honey's healing properties. The high content of MGO can only be consistently found in Manuka honey.
