16+ Bio-Active Manuka Honey
Honey has been used since ancient times to treat multiple conditions. In ancient Greece, honey was used not only for its nutritional value but even for medical purposes. Today New Zealand Active Manuka Honey is renowned for its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-aging and healing qualities.
Manuka Honey is produced by bees that pollinate the native Manuka bush that grow almost exclusively in the East Cape region of New Zealand, which gives it rarity in value. Manuka Honey bees collect Manuka nectar and convert it into Manuka Honey.
Manuka Honey is rich in carbohydrates, proteins, amino acids, vitamins B & C, minerals and antioxidants. It is distinct from other honeys as it contains additional bioactive components
16+ Bio-Active FactorThe term ‘Active Manuka Honey’ was devised by the NZ Honey Research Institute to distinguish the full range of biological activity, from non-active Manuka varieties. Honey with a bioactive factor rating greater than 12 is clinically active. The Manuka Honey in BeeBio Anti-Aging Skincare is highly bio-active and has been certified with a 16+ Bio-Active Factor
