The World’s Most Effective Anti-bacterial Honey*

  • MGO™ verified Methylglyoxal content*
  • 5 different scientifically proven strengths*
  • The higher the MGO™ content, the stronger the antibacterial activity.

MGO® Manuka Honey

Derived from the nectar of the flowers of theNew Zealandnative Leptospermum scoparium plant, MGO® Manuka Honey is the only 100% natural food in the world shown to have unique properties due to exceptionally high levels of the naturally occurring compound, methylglyoxal.

MGO™ Manuka Honey Unique to New Zealand

For centuries, the aboriginal people ofNew Zealandused the manuka bush in folk medicine. Bark and leaves were boiled, the vapor inhaled for head colds, the liquid rubbed on rheumatic joints and ingested to stomach upsets and dysentery. Bark was also used topically for skin diseases.

Wild & Wonderful

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. 

The Methylglyoxal Factor

In 2006, German scientist, Dr. Thomas Henle, determined that Dietary Methylglyoxal is the dominant constituent of Manuka Honey fromNew Zealandand that Methylglyoxal is exclusively responsible for its stable anti-bacterial activity. 

Dr. Henle and his research team isolated the Methylglyoxal compound in the manuka flower and discovered that Methylglyoxal has the ability to kill bacteria growing in a laboratory situation.

The researchers identified the anti-bacterial properties of Dietary Methylglyoxal by testing more than 80 honeys from around the world.  They found MGO levels as high as 700 mg/kg in someNew Zealandmanuka honeys, more than 70 times higher than ordinary honey. 

Manuka Health’s MGO™ Manuka Honey is the only food in the world with a scientifically demonstrated high Dietary Methylglyoxal content.  Always look for MGO certification to ensure your honey is effective.  

Dr. Henle is a professor at the Technical University of Dresden and the director of the school’sInstituteofFood Chemistry, a world leader in food analysis.  In the journal “Molecular Nutrition and Food Research” in January 2008, Dr. Henle reported that theDresdenstudy “unambiguously demonstrates for the first time that Methylglyoxal is directly responsible for the anti-bacterial activity of manuka honey.”

As a result of his research, the certified MGO system has become the new standard for measuring the Dietary Methylglyoxal content of manuka honey.
