3 Benefits of Consuming Manuka Honey

Maybe you have heard of manuka honey. If not, it is gaining attention in the medical world for its abundance of therapeutic effects from certain bacteria ailments to skin and immunity improvements.

Following the success of Comvita internationally, it’s great timing to introduce our certified UMF® Manuka Honey to millions of health-conscious Costco members across North America,” said Vice President of Comvita North America, Corey Blick. “Through responsible beekeeping and setting the bar for Manuka in the industry from a quality perspective, Comvita has earned the highest level of trust with retailers and consumers.

Honey that helps

The Manuka plant of New Zealand is climate-sensitive and only flowers two to six weeks per year, making the honey a scarce resource. Comvita is a leader in offering certified UMF® Manuka Honey. They own and operate the world’s largest fresh-picked Olive Leaf farm and produces other purest source health and wellness products. 

So, why manuka honey? What are the benefits? There are many, but I picked 3 to highlight for you below.

Manuka Honey is known to relieve Gastritis

The bacteria found most commonly in the high acid stomach regions is called Helicobacter pylori. If you have ever suffered through acid reflux you know how miserable it is. According to a report published in the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine, manuka honey had been found to be potent against 7 different Helicobacter pylori strains, but a similar effect was not observed with other types of honey. Using a Manuka honey with a UMF 10+ or higher seems best. The higher the UMF, the higher it is in its therapeutic effects.

Manuka Honey is great for our Immune System

According to a 2016 print in Natural Living Ideas, lab tests have shown that it contains certain substances that can stimulate cytokine production. Cytokines are signaling proteins involved in immune reactions by the body. They kickstart the defense mechanisms of the body and gets it to fight off pathogens and diseases. Increased cytokine production is behind manuka honey’s protective action against potential infections and diseases.

Manuka Honey is fantastic for those with Chronic Sinusitis

With sinus infections you have bacteria thriving in moist, warm chambers of the sinus cavity. These bacteria will form a biofilm making it hard for antibiotics to break through and take care of the infection. Manuka honey has the ability, especially when consuming manuka honey at least UMF 15+ or higher to act against the common sinusitis bacteria for great relief overall.

Which manuka honey is right for you?

Comvita offers UMF 5+, 10+, 15+ and 20+ manuka honey varieties. Which one is right for you? UMF 5+ has natural honey benefits. It is the most similar to benefits in any pure honey from a trusted source and natural plant. As you get higher in the UMF, you get the best natural benefits offered from its healing and antimicrobial properties. If you are healthy and not in immediate need of a wide range of healing you can still benefit from UMF 5+ and 10+ just fine and feel good about your honey source and have it to rely on when minor ailments arise like colds and such. If you suffer from ailments like chronic acid reflux, chronic sinusitis, eczema and other such conditions that manuka honey can help bring you relief you would want manuka honey that is 15+ or higher.
