Unique to New Zealand MGO™ Manuka honey is a 100% natural food shown to have beneficial activity due to the active compound – Dietary Methylglyoxal which forms naturally in the nectar of the manuka plant.
Unique MGO™ Manuka Honey is collected from a New Zealand plant called Leptospermum scoparium. For quite some time the unique manuka honey activity was known and measured by a general measurement of its biological effect.
What was causing the beneficial activity remained unknown for almost 15 years until a research group led by Professor Thomas Henle, University of Dresden (Germany) discovered what makes MGO Manuka Honey so special.
MGO™ Manuka honey has a significant DietaryMethylglyoxalcontent ranging from 20mg/kg to over 800mg/kg. In contrast, all other honey worldwide tested have ranged from 1 to 10 mg/kg. Manuka Health Honey is unpasteurized and classified as raw.
