Research you can trust, a story you can't beat
The remarkable properties of the Mānuka tree and its nectar have been understood by New Zealand’s indigenous Māori population for almost a millennia. The importance of Mānuka features in the role it has had for centuries as a traditional remedy and its importance is even recognised in Māori creation stories.
Decades of research from scientists around the world have begun to uncover the signature compounds, mechanisms, and benefits that make genuine New Zealand Mānuka honey truly unique. In addition, researchers are starting to unravel the special characteristics of the Mānuka tree that have made it a critical ingredient to health in New Zealand-Aotearoa for many centuries.
Mānuka honey is produced from the characteristic nectar from the sweet-smelling flower of the Mānuka tree. Rich in amino acids, Vitamins B & C, antioxidants, minerals, proteins, carbohydrates, and bioactive compounds, Mānuka honey is a superfood and at the forefront of natural health sciences. No other honey has the volume or complexity of natural components at work like New Zealand Mānuka honey.
Ongoing research & development plays a pivotal role in Mānuka Performance, enabling us to further quantify the polyphenol, flavonoid and bioactive components to target specific health conditions and cellular activity. Lab work, clinical trials and robust scientific research projects enable Mānuka Performance to lock in findings, intellectual property and be a global leader in the nutraceutical / therapeutic / health space.
