HOW TO USE MĀNUKA HONEY FOR NATURAL WELLBEING
Dec 21, 2021
Honey has been used since ancient times as a nourishing natural food and topical healing remedy, and modern science has confirmed the extraordinary natural qualities of New Zealand Mānuka honey.
MGO - THE POWER OF MĀNUKA HONEY
New Zealand Mānuka has a long history as a respected medicinal plant, with different parts traditionally used by the New Zealand Māori people as a remedy for skin and digestive ailments, coughs, colds, throat and oral care.
It’s the nectar from the Mānuka flower that makes Mānuka honey so special. MGO, the key compound responsible for the potency of Mānuka honey, is naturally formed in the honey from the Mānuka nectar.
The higher the MGO level, the higher the potency of the honey. This is why choosing a Mānuka honey that has been certified for MGO content is so important, so you know exactly what you are getting.
Here's a guide to help you select the right potency for your needs:
As a general guide we recommend:
+ For use as a nutritious sweetener or for culinary use – go for the lower numbers MGO 30+ to 115+
+ bFor daily protection and wellbeing enhancement – go for MGO 263+ or 400+
+ For more acute/targeted use, aim for the higher numbers – MGO 573+ and above
