The MGO 250+ Manuka Honey has been tested and is certified to contain at least 250 mg/kg of methylglyoxal, a natural compound found in significant quantities in Manuka Honey produced from the wild, uncultivated manuka plant in New Zealand.
For centuries, the Maori people of New Zealand used the manuka bush in folk medicine. Bark and leaves were boiled, the liquid rubbed on joints and ingested for general well-being.
MGO™ Manuka Honey is sourced from remote regions where there are no signs of civilization. In these pristine settings, the manuka bush grows wild. The bush flowers for only four weeks each year and during this time, the beehives need to be at full strength and located close to large areas of manuka bush for gathering nectar. Manuka Health has invested in its own beekeeping operation to secure access to high quality manuka. All incoming honey is tested and graded according to a range of quantitative and qualitative measures. Laboratory tests monitor the MGO™ content of every drum in storage as well as the finished product. Manuka Health brand Manuka Honey was the first honey with directly measured Methylglyoxal content.
