Australia's Manuka 20+ Active Jellybush Wound Care is not your ordinary honey, firstly you don't eat it - you apply it!
Why would you apply honey to your skin? Great question.
The little number beside the name 20+ Active Jellybush antibacterial honey means it has been ULF rated to be of an activity rating of 20+.
So what does that mean?
The Activity rating of honey is a standard that has been developed by researchers and the 'active honey' industry to determine the strength of the honey to be used for therapeutic purposes. The three acronyms used are NPA, ULF and MGO.
Whoopie, you say!
So let's break this down to something that makes sense. The higher the NPA (Non peroxide activity) which has then been termed ULF (Unique Leptosermum Factor) the better the medicinal effect. MGO (Methylglyoxal) is one of the active components, in Active Manuka and Active Jelly bush honeys. MGO tends to be the most popular choice of activity rating used in Europe. Australia'a Manuka Wound Care 20+ is equivalent to MGO 800+!
These honeys are produced by bees who pollinate a group of plants from the Leptosermum family, which scientists have discovered produce the best medicinal grade honey.
