Manuka Honey comes from the nectar of the flower of the Manuka Bush (Leptospermum Scoparium) which is indigenous to New Zealand. It is the nectar and the bee that give this honey its unique properties. Decades of research have culminated to identify the unique signature compounds found in genuine Manuka Honey. With its unique properties, Manuka Honey has become one of the most researched honeys in the world.
There is a large body of international research which collectively provides consumers and fellow researchers with a wealth of information about this product.

What makes Manuka Honey different is its amazing nutritional profile. Regular raw honey is already known for its tremendous nutritional and immune boosting capabilities. Generally speaking, the typical raw unfiltered honey is a rich source of
- Amino acids
- B vitamins (B6, thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid)
Yet with Manuka honey, the nutritional content is up to 4 times that of normal flower honeys. This is what is called the Unique Manuka Factor.

The Science of Manuka Honey
Manuka honey has been the subject of numerous scientific studies at the University of Waikato in New Zealand, Cardiff in the UK and many other centres of study around the world. It is still being studied by scientists in New Zealand and around the world on an ongoing and continuous basis. Many in the medical and scientific community believe that we have only scratched the surface of Manuka honey use and capability. The processes involved are long and complex. Many within the scientific community believe that major advances in our understanding of Manuka honey will be achieved over the next decade.
