Mānuka Honey is one of the most unique and beneficial forms of honey in the world. In 1981, researchers at the New Zealand University of Waikato discovered that Mānuka Honey had a considerably higher level of enzymes than regular honey. In the process, they identified Mānuka’s active agent, methylglyoxal (MGO)—the measured concentration that determines the potency of the honey the jar. Overall, Mānuka is highly anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-microbial, making it a great addition to any wellness routine and health apothecary.
