Because of its extraordinary natural benefits, Manuka honey has been researched more than any other kind of honey.  The results have scientific studies done on this amazing resource is compelling.  Some of the most comprehensive research has been done at the University of Waikato in New Zealand by Dr. Peter Molan and his team.  The evidence suggests that there are certain qualities that are unique to Manuka honey that cannot be found in other honeys, making it extremely valuable.  

Manuka honey has a rich flavor with a smooth and creamy texture.  Unlike pasteurized honey which has been heated and processed, destroying its beneficial live enzymes, Manuka honey is sold raw and in its purest form, preserving all of its natural goodness.  Most people prefer the taste of Manuka honey over ordinary honey as its caramel-like consistency is very appealing and delicious.  

Honeybees produce this special honey by utilizing the nectar of the flowers that grow on the Manuka plant (Leptospermum Soparium) which is a similar plant species to the Australian Tea Tree (Melaleuca) and possesses many of the same properties.  Beekeepers in New Zealand ensure a monofloral production by strategically placing the hives within a two mile radius of nothing but Manuka trees.  This prevents the bees from seeking nectar from any other plant source which could compromise the integrity of the honey.  

Consumers have been drawn to the unique benefits of Manuka honey as the negative side effects caused by various pharmaceutical products are becoming more concerning.  Sales of natural products and an increase in awareness and desire for natural remedies have fueled the demand for Manuka honey in the United States and around the world.  Promising research and long-term use of Manuka honey has shown no known side effects.  

The use of Manuka honey for various conditions is now gaining worldwide acceptance in both consumer and professional markets.  The efficacy of Manuka honey is not only attributed to academic studies but also from anecdotal reports.  In other words, it’s hard to argue with success when a product is used and works well.  Facts like these have put Manuka honey in the limelight over the course of the past few years.  It is also estimated that Manuka honey’s popularity will continue to grow in the future.  

It’s important to know that not all Manuka honey is active.  The potency of Manuka honey varies greatly from what batch to the next.  Laboratory analyses are required to determine the levels of phytochemical compounds in each batch.  Since there is no regulatory commission that oversees the production of Manuka honey and the various trademarks and acronyms indicated on different brand labels can be confusing, we encourage consumers to ask questions, request lab certificates and inquire as to how the potency level listed on the label is determined.  Reputable companies will willingly answer these questions and provide supporting documentation.  Disreputable companies will not.  

Since the FDA does not consider Manuka honey to be a registered drug, suppliers are prohibited from making medical claims about its effectiveness.  Websites and other publications are considered to be an extension of the information provided on product labels, and therefore, this content falls under labeling regulations.  However, entities that do not sell Manuka honey but only provide information can disclose any information about Manuka honey that is true based on the laws protecting the Freedom of Speech.  We encourage consumers to research the truth about Manuka honey and its many uses.
