Buying Manuka Honey From Authorized Distributors And Suppliers
Manuka Honey is a special type of honey derived from New Zealand where the beekeepers set up hives in uncultivated areas wherein Manuka bushes can grow. It contains unique compounds and phytochemical properties that make them extremely valuable compared with other types of honey. The Manuka Honey itself sprang from the nectar of flowers that grow on the Manuka plant. They have many unique types of applications, both orally and on the skin. They are both healthy for the body and for the skin.
There are basically two kinds of Manuka Honey—the inactive honey and the Active Manuka Honey. The active honey has a property called the Unique Manuka Factor (UMF) antibacterial property. Studies do not show, however, why some honey grows with an antimicrobial property while others don’t.
But Active Manuka Honey is harder to find than ordinary types of honey. One should be cautious before buying a supposed Active Manuka Honey because there are international distributors who are also being fooled by the manufacturers of non-active Manuka Honey. Active Manuka Honey must have been cultivated and processed in the pollution-free environment of New Zealand. The honey-making process there helps the Active Manuka Honey maintain its medically- and scientifically-proven properties.
