Manuka honey is packed with vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, and offers protection against a range of bacterium. It is useful for killing oral bacteria that contributes to gum disease and tooth decay, it can relieve inflammation in the sinuses, and alleviate mild skin complaints such as eczema. It’s also delicious!
Where to buy Manuka Honey
Manuka honey must undergo certification and submit to third-party testing to ensure it is pure and authentic. The MGO grade or rating is based on testing that identifies how much MGO is present. The more MGO is present, the more powerful Manuka’s health properties are.
MGO stands for methylglyoxal. This is Manuka’s magic – it’s what provides antimicrobial and antibacterial benefits and supports wellness. It’s what makes Manuka more potent than any other local honey.
While you might find Manuka honey on the supermarket shelf, you should make the purchase directly from a honey supplier. Not only does that ensure you have a wider selection to choose from, but you can also be assured you are purchasing authentic Manuka honey that is certified and pure. Simply Honey provides Australian sourced Manuka honey that undergoes independent laboratory analysis testing to determine the MGO strength of each batch.
What is the best Manuka Honey?
The first thing to look for is where it was made and we believe purchasing 100% Australian Manuka honey is the best Manuka in the world. Bees in the area pollinate Leptospermum plants and the result is the world’s greatest honey.
The next step is to check the MGO rating and to determine whether it has been tested for it’s MGO strength.
How to choose Manuka Honey
The most efficient way to choose Manuka honey is to find the right grade for your use. The higher the grade, the more health benefits it brings. The lower grade still provides a range of health benefits, but it’s cheaper so is suitable for daily use to replace standard table honey.
Why is Manuka Honey so expensive?
Manuka honey is in limited supply because it only comes from one region in the world. It can only be made when bees pollinate one specific plant species, which is why it’s easy to identify counterfeit products – they are cheap and don’t provide the health benefits authentic Manuka honey will. That being said, the higher the grade, the less you need, so it isn’t as expensive as many people believe.
How much Manuka Honey do I need per day?
That depends on what you plan to use it for. To consume, it’s a delightful treat you should use in line with the standard recommended allowance.
If you plan to use it to treat teen acne, then a teaspoon should be more than sufficient. You can apply this directly as a topical solution. The same goes for using it topically for other skin complaints such as dermatitis.
You should speak to a trusted health professional about your specific use to be sure.
What number Manuka Honey is best for me?
The right MGO number for you depends on what you plan to use Manuka honey for.
If you want an everyday pantry staple, then MGO 30+ is an excellent addition to your kitchen. You can use it as table honey, and it’s an affordable option that everyone in the family can use and benefit from.
If you want honey for daily use that will also contribute to immune wellness, then MGO 100+ is a good option. You can enjoy up to 2 tablespoons a day for an immune boost and improved digestive health.
When it comes to nutrition, as well as antibacterial and antimicrobial benefits, MGO 500+ is a good option. You can use it for scrapes and cuts, as well as for tackling infections, an immune boost, and improved digestive health. If you plan to use Manuka honey internally over the long term, this is the highly recommended option.
The highest grade is MGO 900+. This is for topical use, oral hygiene, acne, skin conditions, wounds, and infections. However, it can also be used on a short-term basis to fight an upset stomach, ease the symptoms of stomach flu, and fight colds.
