COMVITA Manuka Honey
There are lots of different kinds of Manuka honey on the market these days. I think I've tried most of them and I always come back to the Comvita brand. Comvita Active UMF Manuka Honey can claim a special level of antibacterial activity which is found only in a particular type of honey from the species of plants known as Leptospermum, the Manuka or Tea tree plant which is native to New Zealand and parts of Australia. This is a honey with genuine healing qualities, externally for skin problems (such as grazes, skin irritation and minor burns) and internally to treat digestive disorders. When taken with food or just on a spoon I've found Comvita Manuka really helpful for soothing acid reflux, digestive upsets and as part of the treatment for Helicobacter pylori, the bacteria that cause most ulcers. Available in different ‘grades’ from UMF 5 to UMF 20, the higher the number, the higher the antibacterial effect. By the way, it's a great sweet treat if you're fighting cravings for chocolate or other sugary snacks.
Important note: Some types of Manuka are intended for external use only so make sure that you choose the right grade for whatever it is you want to treat.
