Manuka Honey MGO 550+ (available in 250g or 500g)
Manuka honey is used as a natural ointment for wounds of all kinds. It has been hailed as a go-to germ fighter in an age of resistance to conventional antibiotics. Proponents also claim that Manuka honey can treat other conditions from acne to sinus issues. It’s the product of the New Zealand scrub plant that gives it its name. European honey bees introduced it to the area in the early 19th century. When bees pollinate from this plant, their honey is more potent than standard honey bee honey. This is because it has a higher concentration of methylglyoxal (MGO).
100% Natural New Zealand Manuka
When it comes to superfoods, raw honey is associated with health benefits. Manuka isn’t a raw honey, but it is specialised. It’s antibacterial and bacterial resistant. This means that bacteria shouldn’t be able to build up a tolerance to its antibacterial effects. Manuka honey is said to be effective for treating everything from a sore throat to clearing up blemishes on your skin.
Other purported benefits of honey include:
* Helping heal cuts and scrapes
* Clearing infections
* Easing stomach aches
* Improving digestion
* Boosting the immune system
* Providing energy
DIRECTIONS: It is generally taken by the spoonful, used in drinks and applied directly to the skin.
Dosage – taken internally
Taking a spoonful of undiluted Manuka honey allows it to be readily and quickly absorbed by the body. Usually, the dosage ranges from one to three teaspoons of raw Manuka honey per day. Your dose and method will vary depending on your reason for using medicinal honey. The benefits can be felt within a few days of consuming it daily, and many people increase their dose, from teaspoons, up to 3-4 tablespoons per day for 3 months and beyond.
For an energy boost
Manuka honey has a nutrient dense profile and its natural sugars and carbohydrates are quickly and easily absorbed by the body. It is excellent for sports, fitness and training sessions.
Digestive and internal infections
If you are using Manuka for healing internal infections or aiding the digestion process, it’s recommended to consume it with food, which slows down absorption so the honey can work it’s magic on your stomach. You may take up to 4 spoons daily. It has been reported to sooth the gi tract, aid IBS symptoms, discourage bad bacteria and encourage the beneficial bacteria of your stomach.
Including a spoonful of Manuka honey in your daily diet is a great way to combat the cold and flu season for the whole family. For colds and flu symptoms, take a spoonful before meals and once before bedtime.
Antibacterial and microbial
Current research is focusing on how active honey is even able to conquer antibiotic resistant bacteria. (Such as E.Coli – See study here) Many people also report relief from seasonal allergies by consuming raw Manuka honey daily. But please seek professional medical help if you have an infection or suffer from a serious illness. Due to a low occurrence of infant botulism, raw honey is not recommended for infants under 12 months, although cooked honey would be OK.
Give your body a nutrient and energy boost by adding Manuka honey to your daily drinks. You could take it with your morning warm water to start off your day. You can add it to smoothies, warm milk, yogurt or juice in place of sweeteners. For an irritated throat, you can use it together with lemon in warm water to soothe.
External Application as wound and skin care
Active Manuka honey can be applied to areas with wounds, acne, eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea. It is usually applied after cleansing the infected area and then covered with a sterile dressing overnight, or you can change it every few hours. Applied this way, it is not messy. For cuts and burns, wipe wound with a sterile cloth, removing any foreign objects and then apply honey directly to wound using a sterile cotton tip or cloth. Cover and repeat as needed, up to a few times per day. The honey will help draw any foreign objects to the surface, and aid in skin repair, whilst its antibacterial properties keep infection at bay. But please do seek professional medical advice for any serious wounds or wounds that aren’t getting better.
You can lightly apply honey as you would a facial mask. Leave it for an hour and then wash with warm water and soap. The process is then repeated daily until results are evident.
How to take Manuka honey for pets
Some of our customers have even applied Manuka honey to their horses and dogs for skin care of minor sores and wounds.
"I personally use Manuka honey in a number of ways, firstly each morning the first thing I have in warm water with a tea spoon of Manuka, squeeze of fresh lemon juice and tea spoon of apple cider vinegar. A great kick start to the day. I also use it on small wounds on both myself or my miniature dachshunds." Chris, Customer Feedback
