Comvita UMF® 15+ Active Manuka Honey contains a high level of antibacterial activity only found in UMF® Active Manuka Honey, helping to maintain healthy digestive function.
Comvita Manuka Honey is sourced from New Zealand's remote, pollution free native forests and is world renowned for its unique flavour. Comvita Manuka Honeys for both the table and the first aid cabinet are tested for the unique antibacterial properties which make New Zealand Manuka honey famous.
The Active Manuka Honey Association (or AMHA), has registered UMF® (Unique Manuka Factor) as a trademark so that the antibacterial activity of Manuka honey cannot be misrepresented. The UMF® number comes from a laboratory test for antibacterial activity, with the honey being compared with a standard reference antiseptic (phenol) for potency. For example, UMF® 20+ would be equivalent in antiseptic potency to a 20% solution of phenol.
Manuka Honey which is tested and proven to have the UMF® is labelled accordingly. Only honeys with a UMF® rating higher than 10 can use the UMF® trademark.
Directions: To assist the digestive process, take 1-2 teaspoons half an hour before meals.
