Comvita UMF 10+ Manuka Honey 500g
Comvita® Manuka Honey is sourced from New Zealand's remote, pollution-free native forests and is world renowned for its unique flavour.
Comvita® UMF® 10+ Active Manuka Honey is guaranteed to be at least UMF®10 and has been verified by an independent laboratory to have proven levels of unique manuka factor activity, which was first identified by Dr. Peter Molan at New Zealand's Waikato University. Only some manuka honeys from New Zealand have this special activity that has now gained a world-wide reputation for its value in both skin and wound care, and maintenance of digestive health.
The NZ Honey Association has registered UMF® as a trademark so that the antibacterial activity of Manuka honey cannot be misrepresented. The UMF® number comes from a laboratory test for antibacterial activity, with the honey being compared with a standard reference antiseptic (phenol) for potency. UMF® 20+ would be equivalent in antiseptic potency to a 20% solution of phenol. Manuka honey that has been tested and proven to have the UMF® (Unique Manuka Factor) is labelled accordingly.
Special techniques are used to ensure that Comvita® UMF® 10+ Active Manuka Honey reaches you in optimum condition, just as nature intended.
The UMF® properties of Comvita® Active Manuka Honey may provide benefit for those experiencing digestive discomfort such as indigestion and dyspepsia. During in vitro laboratory testing, UMF® Active Manuka Honey has been found to be effective in enhancing the growth of the probiotic bacterial species Bifidobacterium, thereby supporting a healthy gut microbiota and environment.
Enjoy a spoonful or more by mouth (or use as a spread) to support digestive health and general wellbeing.
