WHAT IS MANUKA HONEY AND WHY IS THE MOST USEFUL?
Everyone knows about the beneficial properties of honey. But few know about the existence of a special honey - manuka honey, which can safely replace your entire first-aid kit.
WHAT IS MANUKA HONEY?
Manuka is a tree shrub with large pink flowers that grows in the wild places of New Zealand and some parts of Australia. The conditions for beekeeping here are simply magical - surrounded by pure nature, far from machines and plants, insects have strong immunity and do not require special medications that they usually “feed” bees to get our usual honey. Manuka honey itself is super valuable and contains a huge amount of natural nutrients - they literally treat everything.
The main and most noticeable effect of manuka honey is an amazing charge of cheerfulness and energy, a sense of clarity of mind and a good mood. This is said by everyone who has already included this product in the list of their favorites in the kitchen.
Manuka honey properties work at the cellular level. It contains a unique ingredient - methylglyoxal (MGO), which penetrates the diseased cell and produces hydrogen peroxide in it. Thus, the liquid in the close space of the cell evaporates, and the bacteria without a moist environment simply die. Such antibacterial therapy can be used in the treatment of various diseases: from intestinal and gastric to infections, inflammation of mucous membranes, skin problems, etc. Manuka honey perfectly heals wounds and even ulcers.
TASTE AND APPLICATION
Manuka honey is very tasty. Despite the characteristic smell of the undergrowth, it is not as cloying as ordinary honey, and much thicker in texture. Manuka honey is recommended to be taken with a teaspoon three times a day.
WHERE TO BUY
In order not to fall for a poor-quality and falsified product, it is best to buy manuka honey in well-known organic food stores. One of two logos must necessarily appear on the honey bank: UFM (“unique manuka factor”) or updated - MGO (methylglyoxal level indicator). The higher are the indicators on these markings, the more effective is honey in its properties (bacteria and viruses die faster).
The more MGO - the more expensive. This is the wildest forest honey with MGO 550+ (for comparison, the usual indicators are 100+ or 250+).
