Manuka Honey is collected from a plant that is unique to New Zealand - Leptospermum scoparium.UMF® stands for Unique Manuka Factor, and refers to a very special antibacterial property produced naturally by the nectar of some manuka flowers. All Manuka Health Active UMF®10+ Manuka Honey products have been tested and certified by independent laboratories.UMF® (Unique Manuka Factor) is an additional anti-bacterial activity first discovered by Dr Peter Molan (University of Waikato, NZ) in some Manuka honey. Unlike hydrogen peroxide activity present in most kinds of honey UMF® was found stable to the effect of light, heat and body fluids.The level of UMF® activity in Manuka honey varies significantly from 10 to 25+, and a special assay has been developed to measure it. Research has proved only Manuka honey with the rating of UMF® 10 and higher has reliable health properties. The higher the rating the higher the level of anti-bacterial activity in the honey.UMF® Manuka honey works against a wide range of bacteria including the causes of stomach ulcers, sore throats and major wound infections. This honey has also proven to be effective in helping the natural healing of skin ulcers, burns, boils, cracked skin and the superbug MRSA.Manuka Health has introduced a new brand - MGO™ Manuka Honey and measures methylglyoxal content based on standards developed by the University of Dresden.For example, MGO™ 100 Manuka Honey is certified to contain at least 100mg/kg of dietary methylglyoxal, the minimum required for health benefits.
