Manuka Honey with UMF 24+: Nature’s solution to restore skin health
New Zealand is home to one of the world’s largest, endemically unique natural resources. In fact, due to geographical isolation from large landmasses, many unique plants and animals are found. One such extremely valuable resource is the Manuka flower found indigenously in New Zealand. In fact, it is so valuable that a separate organization for the honey extracted from these flowers, the Unique Manuka Factor (UMF) Honey Association standardizes the quality of manuka honey available all around the world.
What is Manuka Honey?
Similar to other flowers, Manuka flowers also attract a lot of honeybees who collect the nectar from the flowers and transform it into honey. This honey essentially also gets most of the medicinal properties of the manuka flowers. Because of these properties, Manuka honey is more unique and valuable than any other honey available in the market.
Produces from the Manuka tree were used by the Maori tribe in New Zealand for years as a medicine for healing scars, burns, and cuts on their skin and also to relieve internal problems like constipation and eyesores.
Manuka Honey is a thick light orangish-brown colored liquid with a strong, slightly herbal but honey-sweet taste.
Bee Elite Essentials products use Manuka honey with UMF 24+ which is the highest standard of manuka honey as stated by the UMF Honey Association of New Zealand. The standardization is done on the amount of Methylglyoxal (MGO) and Dihydroxyacetone (DHA), which determines how potent the manuka honey sample is.
Why is Manuka Honey good for your skin?
Manuka honey has excellent anti-inflammatory properties, it is also antibacterial and antimicrobial. These properties are the result of methylglyoxal (MGO) which is an active compound found in Manuka honey.
Studies show that Manuka honey can protect your skin from inflammation which is one of the major reasons for rapid skin aging. Its antimicrobial properties work against the harmful bacteria of your skin keeping it safe from infection, irritation, and inflammation. The as the UMF increases, the healing, and medicinal properties of the Manuka honey increase as well. Manuka honey with UMF 24+ is capable of restoring tissue and cell health leading to smoother and younger-looking skin.
Bee Elite Essentials have skillfully used Manuka Honey in all their Ageless series products to give you maximum benefits that the ingredient has to offer.
