Manuka honey, MGO 100+, Tasmanian Honey Company
Delicious, healthy Manuka honey, with an MGO activity rating of 100+ from the Tasmanian Honey Company
Produced from Manuka bushes growing wild in Tasmania's ancient forests this is a 500gms jar of pure, natural honey that promotes good health and tastes great as well.
Its been laboratory tested to confirm that each kilogram of this Manuka honey contains at least 100mgs of MethylGlyOxal (i.e. MGO). This is the naturally occurring substance in manuka honey that gives it the special anti-bacterial properties that help in dealing with minor ailments such sore throats, colds and skin complaints.
Abrasions, minor cuts and the like will also benefit from the natural healing achieved by the application of manuka honey.
Thats because when you spread it on your skin the honey will not only sterilize the area, but also naturally draw out any excess moisture.
The New Zealand honey industry has, of course, worked hard to try and persuade the world that the Manuka bush (latin name leptospermum scoparium ) is found only in New Zealand, and that manuka honey only comes from New Zealand.
But thats simply not true - its just marketing spin.
In fact the Manuka bush is indigenous to Australia and especially to Tasmania.
Indeed the Manuka bush almost certainly arrived in New Zealand on winds blowing across the Tasman sea from Tasmania.
Thats why I recommend genuine Australian manuka honey like this one, packaged in a hygienic 500gms PET jar; and featuring a beautiful graphic design.
