About Australian by Bio-Active Manuka Honey
Australian by Nature Manuka Honey is a natural bio–active honey which is produced from nectar collected from the blossoms of the leptospermum scoparium tree. Manuka is the native New Zealand Maori name for this tree. Our Manuka honey is sourced from high density, 100% organic and pollution free Manuka forests in far North New Zealand. It is a potent anti–bacterial and anti–viral agent and is the only honey available which has been tested for its anti–bacterial activity.
Unlike other honey, the anti–bacterial activity of Manuka honey is very stable. It is not affected by light, heat nor dilution, making it very effective in the treatment of many ailments. The tested strength of Manuka honey can be determined by the activity factor, which is represented by a number. The higher the number, the stronger the anti–microbial ingredient and the more potent the bio–activity of the honey.
Each batch of Australian by Nature Bio–Active Manuka Honey is laboratory tested to determine its bioactivity level (NPA) using the same method prescribed by Professor Peter Molan, the world renowned scientist at the University of Waikato, New Zealand. The ‘Certified Manuka’ rating shown is based on the minimum level of non–peroxide activity as equivalent per cent phenol, measured as in J Pharm Parmacol 43:817–22.
