Manuka Honey
This 100% natural Manuka Honey is collected from a plant that is unique to New Zealand – Leptospermum scoparium.

Pinky white star-shaped Manuka flowers appear in early spring and are a common sight over many months through the New Zealand summer attracting the honey bees.  Manuka flowers have a very strong aromatic fragrance and are full of the nectar which provides this dark, creamy, slightly bitter tasting honey.

The plant is treasured by the Maori people and has historically been used for medicinal purposes.

About MGO™ Manuka Honey

Manuka Honey’s unique RELIABLE anti-bacterial activity was discovered in some manuka honey by Waikato University biochemist Professor Peter Molan 15 years ago.  This reliable activity has never yet been found in any other honey in the world.

Manuka Health’s research partners - Technical University of Dresden - have recently found the active compound in manuka honey responsible for the reliable antibacterial activity is Methylglyoxal - MGO™ Manuka Honey.

Most honeys have a concentration of Methylglyoxal from 0 to 10mg/kg.  Typically  MGO™ Manuka honey ranges from 100 to over 800mg/kg.  MGO™ Manuka Honey over 400mg/kg has the strength to reliably kill a very large number of harmful bacteria.

MGO™ Manuka Honey with these high levels has proved to be effective against some antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria and even outperformed conventional antibiotics in treating infected surgical wounds, stomach ulcers and burns.

The potential for MGO™ Manuka Honey is bright.

Indian cancer researchers had found methylglyoxal in large doses has the potential to act specifically against malignant cells in the body and has a significant curative effect on a wide range of cancers in animals.

THIS DISCOVERY SHOWS  MGO™ MANUKA HONEY IS A SUPERIOR FOOD AND ELEVATES IT INTO THE CATEGORY OF MEDICAL FOODS.

Q & A

What is MGO™ Manuka Honey?
Methylglyoxal is a compound identified as the active ingredient responsible for the anti-bacterial action of Manuka honey, by Professor Thomas Henle, Head of the Institute of Food Chemistry at the Technical University of Dresden. Prof. Henle found the higher the Methylglyoxal level, the greater the anti-bacterial effect.

Is there Methylglyoxal in all honeys?
Some honeys have no Methylglyoxal at all. Others have very low levels. Some New Zealand Manuka honeys have been found to contain Methylglyoxal levels as high as 700 mg/kg, 70 times the level of other honey.


As long as it is Manuka honey, it has Methylglyoxal, right?
Not necessarily. Methylglyoxal is a compound present in New Zealand Manuka trees which have a short flowering period. Because of this, factors such as other plants flowering nearby, hive placement and harvest timing, can dilute Methylglyoxal levels. Correct processing of products is also crucial.

How will I know if the Manuka honey I buy has enough Methylglyoxal?
A testing regime is planned for the Manuka Health honey in New Zealand. This will certify the level of Methylglyoxal in products for consumer guidance.  Manuka Health has a trade mark for Methylglyoxal in manuka honey - MGO™ Manuka Honey.  The number beside it would represent the level of Methylglyoxal in the honey.

What do scientists know about Methylglyoxal?
Numerous studies have been done about the effects of Methylglyoxal using synthetically-produced Methylglyoxal (with impurities) in a laboratory, rather than how the human body responds to the naturally-occurring compound. Honey containing a high level of Methylglyoxal kills bacteria on contact (this is the basis of Manuka honey products developed especially as wound dressings). Some laboratory studies show Methylglyoxal has a cytotoxic effect (kills cancers), some show Methylglyoxal can modify DNA and proteins, and others discuss a positive effect from the formation of chemo-protective compounds.

How safe is Methylglyoxal?
Studies using animals have shown no toxic effects of Methylglyoxal in four species (mice, rats, rabbits and dogs). These studies showed taking Methylglyoxal orally was safe at the levels administered. The intake was equivalent to 3kgs of high testing MGO™ Manuka Honey per day on a sustained basis. The only studies on Methylglyoxal in humans to be published in scientific journals are those by the Department of Biological Chemistry, Indian Association for the Cultivation of Science Jadavpur, Kolkata, India. Professor Ray, Head of the Department says “these studies have indicated Methylgloxal is safe for consumption by cancer patients”.

How safe is MGO™ Manuka Honey containing Methylglyoxal?
Methylglyoxal is known to kill bacteria and may also have an effect on other cells. Scientists agree more research is needed to understand how Methylglyoxal works as a naturally-occurring compound in food. However, MGO™ Manuka Honey has been ingested for decades by millions of people without any negative consequences becoming apparent. People with medical conditions such as diabetes must of course be careful with any honey because of its sugar content. Professor Henle states “We always must realize that Methylglyoxal is a NATURAL compound, which has been ingested for decades, and up to now NO negative consequences are known”.

Other claims, apart from anti-bacterial effectiveness, have been made for Manuka Honey. Can I rely on these claims too?
Claims such as Methylglyoxal's effect as a cancer treatment have been tested in research. However, relying on the MGO™ Manuka Honey to have the same affect may be questionable. In the cancer treatment research, patients ingested 30 mg of Methylglyoxal per kg of body weight per day, equivalent to consuming 1.5 kg of a high MGO™ Manuka Honey per day in an average person.
