Honey has been used for millennia as a foodstuff but also for its medicinal properties. You may have heard recently that hospitals have returned to using pure medicinal grade honey for wound healing and one of the most sought after is the rare golden nectar from New Zealand called Kanuka Honey.
Collection of Kanuka honey only happens once a season when the Kanuka flowers are in full bloom on Great Barrier Island. This golden nectar is clinically proven to be packed with anti-inflammatory and antibacterial clout. We choose to stock the Sven's Island brand, learn more about it here
So what makes this rare golden delight just so special?
Well it's all down to a unique Glycoprotein - AGP Protein (Arabinogalactan) that displays strong anti-inflammatory properties. AGP stimulates the cells of the immune system and releases cytokines which are proteins used to heal and repair the wound and help settle the irritation of an infection.
In addition, there are a high concentration of antibacterial properties known as ‘DHA’ which is also known as UMF or Unique Manuka Factor and a phytonutrient compound called hydrogen peroxide which has antimicrobial features.
