|Prized for its highest anti-bacterial activity among honeys. Manuka Honey has been used for centuries, good for ailments including wounds, ulcers of the skin, leg and stomach, cold sores, sore throats, toothache, gum diseases, diarrhoea, eye infections, hemorrhoids, stomach health and others.
The anti-bacterial activity of most honeys is unstable, as it comes from hydrogen peroxide, produced by an enzyme. This activity is reduced if the enzyme is exposed to heat, oxygen and light and other environmental factors. Our body also produces enymes to destroy the hydrogen peroxide, produced by an enzyme. This activity is reduced if the enzyme is exposed to heat, oxygen and light and other environmental factors. Our body also produces enzymes to destroy the hydrogen peroxide rendering the honey less effective.
The high anti-bacterial activity in Manuka honey termed as "Total Activity" has been attributed not only to the presence of hydrogen peroxide, but also to non-peroxide components, which is stable and are not affected by environmental factors.
In a large Brisbane hospital, Manuka Honey was shown to be twice as effective against E-Coli and Staph Aureus (the 2 most common infesting agents in wounds), and against antibiotic resistant strains like MRSA and VRE compared to other honeys. Results recently published in the New Zealand Medical Journal also showed that Manuka honey successfully treated unresponsive skin ulcers and helped heal wounds where other honeys failed.
Nature's Glory Organic Bioactive Manuka Honey is so special - Harvested in the south Island of NZ protected by the Department of Conservation, where no tourists, farming or industrialisation is allowed. The land is untouched, rich in nutrients, with clean air and pest free. Our bees are not fed with sugar or antibiotics: organically certified by Agriquality NZ (IFOAM Accredited) - no pesticides or additives used. Prepaid hygienically in compliance with the State's standards. No heat pasticides or additives irradiation used. Instead, our honey is lightly filtered into glass amber bottles (unlike many in plastics). Resulting in a high quality-premium nutrient rich honey.
