Goodness of Manuka Honey

For centuries the indigenous people of New Zealand have believed in the goodness of manuka honey. Raw organic manuka honey is harvested from the flower of the tea tree bush, in the remote valleys and alps in New Zealand. (Latin name is leptospermum scoparium).

The benefits of the naturally healing manuka honey, are well documented by the Honey Research Unit at the Waikato University (New Zealand), by the head researchers Dr. Peter Molan. Dr. Molan has long known about the goodness of manuka honey, and spent countless hours during his 26+ years of honey research, lecturing students about the internal and external applications and benefits, of this naturally medicinal honey.

Dr. Molan has written numerous articles, and published many research articles throughout his long standing career. Unfortunately Dr. Molan passed away just a couple of year ago, leaving behind a legacy of Manuka Honey Research in his footsteps.

As more people around the world are becoming aware of the goodness of manuka honey from New Zealand, there are unfortunately many suppliers that offer inferior honey, fake honey, honey that has been diluted, manipulated or blended with similar tasting honey’s, or even worse, man-made “manuka honey”, by filling a jar with water, a type of thickener, adding brown color, and artificial flavoring. There are too many suppliers today, that are willing to sacrifice the good name manuka honey has, for pure profits…
