What Makes MGO 100+ Manuka Honey So Special?
Dietary Methylglyoxal (MGO) is a compound naturally formed in the nectar of the Manuka flower ready for collection by the honey-bee. In the case of Manuka honey the methylglyoxal is transferred into the honey, where it remains stable and is resistant to heat, light and enzymatic activity in body fluids.
Every honey has some anti-bacterial qualities, which originates from the formation of hydrogen peroxide in the honey. This, however, quickly disappears when subjected to the body conditions where methylglyoxal remains stable. This phenomenon makes MGO Manuka Honey superior to other honeys.
It is proven that the higher the MGO (Methylglyoxal) level in Manuka Honey, the higher the antibacterial and antiviral activity in the honey. Antibacterial activity in MGO Manuka Honey is found on honeys with Methylglyoxal level of over 250mg/kg.
MGO 100+ has many excellent properties which can be very useful and ideal with its strength level.
