Nature’s Gold is delighted to stock our very own 100% raw Australian active Manuka honey. Harvested from the East Coast of Australia, every batch is University tested and awarded a strength rating.
Manuka honey is fast becoming known as liquid gold. What makes it so special is its unique non-peroxide activity. This naturally occurring chemical process boosts the antibacterial and antiseptic properties. Manuka honey’s unique value is recognised internationally and a long list of health benefits are associated with its use.
Medical grade Manuka honey is thought to help heal cuts, wounds, minor burns and abrasions. It is associated with the control of fungal infections, eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis and inflammation. It soothes insect bites and fights infections. As a beauty product it smooths, softens and makes skin radiant. Many people take Manuka honey orally for energy, immunity and digestive health.
Manuka honey is mono-floral, meaning it is made from one species of flower. It is produced by bees that have fed on the Leptospermum tree, which flowers fewer than six weeks a year and grows wild in Australia and New Zealand. While Manuka honey has only recently come under the spotlight, its use dates back centuries as a traditional Indigenous medicine.
Different honeys do have different potencies. Our Australian Manuka Honey is rated using the NPA system, which is an abbreviation for Non Peroxide Activity. Every batch of Manuka honey must be lab tested to determine its activity and how potent its active enzymes are. To be classed as therapeutic, Manuka honey must have a rating of 10+. The higher the NPA number, the higher the antibacterial activity and the more beneficial the honey will be for your health.
10+ can be taken as a tonic to boost energy, immunity and digestive health.
Manuka Honey 10+ and higher can be rubbed directly onto open wounds, burns and skin infections to assist the healing process. Once the wound has a scab or skin over the top, start to apply the Therapeutic Skin Cream and/or Manuka Power Concentrated Ointment.
It can also be used as a face mask. Leave on for at least 30 minutes and then rinse off.
