Benefits of Manuka honey

Honey has been used as a natural health and wellness remedy for thousands of years.

The indigenous Maori of New Zealand were first to discover the unique properties of Manuka honey. Genuine UMF™ certified Manuka honey is widely recognized and used for health and wellness. Topically applied it is used for healthy skin and in wound care it is popular for promoting healing.

Genuine Manuka honey has been scientifically proven to contain antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. Genuine Manuka honey contains over 200 compounds not found in other honeys. In particular, the medicinal trilogy of leptosperin, dihdroxyacetone (DHA) and methylglyoxl (MGO) are the signature compounds that are measured in the UMF™ rating given to each jar of Three Peaks Manuka honey. The higher the UMF™ rating, the higher the proportion of unique signature compounds found in that honey.
