Manuka Pharm Is
The Healing Honey
Manuka Pharm Active Manuka Honey is a special type of honey! Great tasting with a wonderfully characterful flavour, it’s widely considered to have numerous natural healing benefits.
WHY CHOOSE Manuka Pharm
Manuka Pharm honey is made from the ‘Leptospermum scoparium’ or Manuka bush which is native to New Zealand. Manuka is actually the Maori name for this medicinal shrub! Beehives are established in pollution-free, uncultivated areas where Manuka bushes are abundant ensuring that the bees gather nectar primarily from the flowers of the Manuka bush.
Manuka Honey possesses anti-bacterial properties some of which are derived from the presence of 'hydrogen peroxide' which is a powerful antibacterial agent. The Hydrogen Peroxide in Manuka honey is produced by an enzyme called 'glucose oxidase'.
Another antibacterial component in Manuka Honey is methylglyoxal (MG). MG is a compound found in most types of honey, but usually only in small quantities. In Manuka Honey, MG comes from the conversion of another compound - dihydroxyacetone - that is found in high concentration in the nectar of the Manuka flowers. MG is therefore much more prevalent and contributes to Manuka honey’s antibacterial powers. The higher the concentration of MG, the stronger the antibacterial effect of the honey. The purity and efficacy of Manuka Pharm Honey is certified by independent laboratory testing.
As well as having antibacterial benefits through consumption, clinical trials have backed up the use of Manuka Honey as a direct wound treatment. When applied to a wound it can effectively eradicate more than 250 clinical strains of bacteria helping to prevent infection and accelerate healing.
There are a variety of different methods used to rate the antibacterial strength of Manuka Honey which can be confusing. Manuka Pharm uses the Total Activity (TA) rating which refers to the bioactivity of the honey. The bioactivity originates predominantly from the presence of naturally occurring hydrogen peroxide which is what gives the honey its antibacterial qualities. The hydrogen peroxide level is measured against a standard phenol solution to gauge the honey’s strength – its TA rating. For example, Active 20+ Manuka Pharm Honey guarantees the honey’s total antibacterial level is 20+ and this would have better antibacterial and healing properties than 15+ honey.

I always buy the Manuka honey from Holland and Barrett, it's definitely worth it. The taste is really nice, smooth, and not too strong. My husband uses it in his porridge and I just have a spoon every other day. I really believe that it makes a difference in our health. Recommended!
