Extensively researched, manuka honey is recognised worldwide for its special active properties. Australia produces some of the most active and best tasting manuka honey in the world due to our warmer climate and number of Leptospermum varieties.
With over 140 year of expertise in honey, Barnes Naturals uses only the finest, authentic Australian manuka honey, independently tested to guarantee its methylglyoxal (MGO) content. MGO is the key natural active compound responsible for the unique properties of manuka honey, with higher MGO values reflecting increased activity levels.
Barnes Naturals 100% Australian manuka honey is:
• Naturally bioactive
• Has antioxidant activity
• Guaranteed MGO levels
• Gently whipped, velvety creamed texture
• Rich, pleasant taste.
Humans have used honey for its health and healing properties for thousands of years. Honey naturally contains vitamins and minerals including B vitamins, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc. It also contains antioxidants such as polyphenols, as well as enzymes and amino acids.
Medicinal honey has been used throughout history by almost every culture and manuka honey is one of the most recognised medicinal honeys in the word because of the number of scientific studies into its unique and naturally higher bioactive properties.
With its subtly sweet, rich flavour and gently whipped velvety texture, the simplest way is just to enjoy one or two teaspoons of manuka honey a day straight from the spoon or mixed with warm water.
For a soothing hot drink, gently stir MGO 400+ manuka honey into your favourite tea. If you've got a sore throat, we'd recommend a mix of manuka honey, lemon, ginger and warm water.
Manuka honey may also be applied topically to the skin to assist with wound healing. To do this, apply a thin layer of MGO 400+ manuka honey directly to the skin and then cover the affected area.
