Why manuka honey is not just another honey
The success and rarity of manuka honeyis first of all its origin. Straight from New Zealand, it has been cultivated exclusively in the country's virgin forests for thousands of years. The Maori Indians quickly began to use manuka honey for its natural antiseptic and antibacterial properties. A true natural antibiotic, it is produced by bees, attracted by the pollen of the highly fragrant flowering shrub. Over time, scientists have come to agree on one point: manuka honey has an exceptional concentration of active ingredients, allowing it to be used in many different ways, both by being ingested and applied to the skin. Indeed, in addition to its benefits on the skin, manuka honey is excellent for boosting the immune system, relieving digestive disorders, preventing respiratory infections and helping people fall asleep. But the manuka honey properties don't stop there...
