PURITI Manuka Honey UMF® 22+

PURITI 22+ UMF Manuka Honey is for those who are serious about their Honey. It contains a massive 1000+ mg/kg of Methylglyoxal and is rich in vitamins and minerals. If you’re looking to try one of the highest grades of NZ Manuka Honey and experience the manuka honey benefits, the UMF 22+ is a great introduction. 

What is MGO and UMF?

Methylglyoxal (MGO) is the active ingredient in Manuka Honey that is believed to give it its reported antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Manuka with a higher UMF grade will contain more MGO and thus provide you with more of these natural benefits.

The Unique Manuka Factor (UMF) rating system was created by the Unique Manuka Factor Honey Association and is a measurement of the potency and purity of Manuka Honey. The higher the UMF grade, the more potent the honey is. In order to reach higher grades, the Manuka Honey has to fit certain criteria and pass tests. 

While the MGO and UMF ratings are separate certifications, there is a correlation between them. Most other brands’ Manuka Honey UMF 22+ will have an MGO rating of around 971, whereas at PURITI we hold our Honey to higher testing standards, resulting in our UMF 22+ having an MGO rating of 1000+.

What can I use UMF 22+ Manuka Honey for?

The high concentration of Methylglyoxal in UMF 22+ Manuka makes it perfect for taking advantage of its nutritional benefits

A few ways you can do this: 

Treatment of sore throats and cold symptoms - Mix Manuka with lemon, ginger and hot water and create a delicious drink that soothes the throat and stomach. A lot of people will also take a teaspoon of it a few times a day and claim it soothes their symptoms and helps them regain health.

Wound healing- It is believed Manuka contains unique anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Because of these properties, a lot of people like to use it to aid in the healing of wounds. It has been used to treat open wounds, burns, ulcers and in the healing of tattoos. 

Oral health- The supposed antibacterial properties can also be used to treat oral conditions like gingivitis and tooth decay, and potentially aid in halting the spread of harmful bacteria.

Skincare- Manuka has been used as a moisturiser, toner and facial mask. It’s thought to be useful in the treatment of acne, dry skin and other skin conditions.

Organ health - There is evidence to suggest that genuine manuka honey’s antibacterial benefits can help to keep your gut healthy and promote healthy digestion.
