Copy of Pure Manuka Honey

What is Manuka Honey?

Manuka honey is a honey produced from the nectar of the Manuka tree, Leptospermum scoparium. The Manuka tree is indigenous to New Zealand. 

Manuka honey is a nutraceutical - a food that is also a medicine.

The magic ingredient in Manuka honey is Methylglyoxal (MGO). MGO is known now to be:

  • Anti-bacterial 
  • Anti-viral
  • Anti-fungal 
  • Anti-oxidant 

As you can tell each jar of Manuka honey has a grade on it that says "MGO 690+" or "MGO 830+". This grade is a reflection of the levels of Methylglyoxal that is present per kilogram of honey. For example MGO 830+ means that there is no less than 830 milligrams of Methylglyoxal in one kilogram of the honey that is in that jar. Our Manuka honey is of particular health benefit due to its purity and high levels of MGO. To put it in perspective, Manuka honey that is graded MGO 300+ or above is considered medically valuable. 

Manuka honey is becoming increasingly valued by naturopaths, dietitians,  athletes and natural health consumers around the world, following in the footsteps of the indigenous Māori people who have used Manuka for its therapeutic and medicinal abilities for centuries. 

From your gut health to your skin health, from your inside to your outside, let this special honey help you live the happy and healthy life that you seek. 


    Must bee in the blood!

    Our honey is sourced straight from the Reid family honeybee farm located on the rugged Wairarapa coast of New Zealand! From the Reids in Alaska to the Reid's in New Zealand, we maintain a passion for sustainable beekeeping, and a dedication to the production of pure honey straight from the source.

    I am so grateful to be able to work with my Uncle Alister, and my cousin Kim, to bring you this amazing honey all the way across the pacific! -James Reid
