Manuka Health selects only the finest raw honey for their products and great care is taken to ensure that the level of bioactive compounds such as beneficial enzymes, nutrients and antioxidant properties are preserved. A modern closed hot water system is used to melt the crystals that have formed during storage so the honey can be creamed and packed. This process does not exceed the natural temperature of the beehive, therefore preserving the benefits of the honey.
What is Methylglyoxal? All incoming honey is tested and graded into five categories based on the minimum Methylglyoxal content. Methylglyoxal is a natural occurring compound found in Manuka Honey. The higher the Methylglyoxal content, the stronger the active constituents of the Manuka Honey.

Stomach Ulcers, Strep Throat, Acid Reflux, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Ulcerative Colitis, Gastritis and Other Internal Conditions: You will need to take the honey internally 3-4 times per day. You can put a teaspoon in your tea, spread it on toast or just swallow a teaspoon of it. It is recommended to take a teaspoon of Manuka Honey about 30 minutes before meals and again before bedtime for internal conditions. Once symptoms are reduced, you can take one teaspoon per day for maintenance purposes.
Eczema, Acne, Wounds, Infections, Burns, Sores, Ringworm and Other Skin Conditions You can use Manuka honey topically when treating skin conditions and wounds. The Manuka Honey must be applied directly to the affected area. Then you can cover it with your bandage or dressing. It can also be used on acne or eczema without a covering, but bear in mind that it can be quite sticky.
Eye or Ear Infections: Stir a teaspoon of Manuka Honey into a cup of lukewarm water. Using an ear dropper, drip the liquefied Manuka Honey solution into your ear or eye. Repeat daily until symptoms are eliminated.
Sinus Infections: Stir a teaspoon of Manuka Honey into a cup of lukewarm water. Using a neti pot, inhale the liquefied Manuka Honey solution into your nose and through the nasal passage way until it comes into your mouth. Repeat daily until symptoms are eliminated.
Pain Relief: Manuka honey can be used to treat pain because of its anti-inflammatory properties. Manuka honey can penetrate the skin and help with arthritic pain, stiffness, muscle pain and joint pain. Manuka honey contains glucosamine and chondroitin sulphate, which are anti-inflammatory agents. These two anti-inflammatory agents stimulate the production of cartilage components, which are essential for joint repair and pain relief, and also decrease inflammation.
Wound Care: Manuka honey is helpful in treating wounds by allowing dead skin to lift off the wound. Manuka honey has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties which help in treating infection. It decreases inflammation in the wound, which helps to reduce the amount of leakage as well. Manuka honey actively stimulates the healing process so skin grafting is not necessary.
Wrinkles: Manuka honey also helps with the reduction and prevention of wrinkles. It is naturally moisturizing and contains vitamins and antioxidants that are beneficial to helping maintain the elasticity and texture of the skin. Manuka honey helps with the texture of the skin because it produces collagen and aids in skins elasticity. The antimicrobial properties of Manuka Honey help to protect skin from free radicals and damage from the sun, which can also lead to premature aging of the skin.
