science and compliance
Mānuka honey's therapeutic claims are well-documented and backed by scientific research. With its high levels of methylglyoxal, it exhibits remarkable antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. These attributes support its use in wound healing, sore throat remedies, and digestive health enhancement. However, it's crucial to scrutinize therapeutic claims and ensure they adhere to established standards. Quality and purity matter when it comes to Mānuka honey's effectiveness. As the market for this honey grows, consumers should be discerning, seeking products with legitimate certifications, like the UMF (Unique Mānuka Factor) rating. Responsible assessment of therapeutic claims ensures that Mānuka honey claims adhere to the therapeutics and food standards act, including FDA requirements.
