Ancient civilisations revered honey not just for its divine taste but also its many medicinal applications. With antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties thanks to enzymes creating hydrogen peroxide, it has been used for easing pain and swelling, and treating wounds and abrasions for millennia. It's nature's antibiotic.
And according to Healthline, even ordinary honey is also a potent pre-biotic, meaning it nourishes the good bacteria in your gut's microbiome.
However, Manuka honey is especially prized for its health-promoting properties. That's all due to a compound called methylglyoxal (or MG) which is found in higher concentration in - you guessed it - manuka flowers. And the higher the concentration the higher the antibacterial effect.
To verify the level of active ingredients and give consumers confidence in what they were buying, a rating system was devised called UMF® , which stands for Unique Manuka Factor. To be considered potent enough to be deemed therapeutic, honey requires a minimum rating of 10 UMF. A UMF rating is also an assurance of both quality and purity.
