Professional Supplement Center is pleased to announce the addition of a line of unique premium natural products from Manuka Health. Based in Te Awamutu, New Zealand, Manuka Health is dedicated to providing high quality MGO™ Manuka honey and Propolis™ products that harness some of nature’s best scientifically proven bioactive compounds garnered from New Zealand’s native flora and fauna. Manuka honey has powerful germ killing properties and is used in hospitals worldwide for treatment of antibiotic-resistant superbugs.
Manuka Health established a precise, scientific certification system for New Zealand Manuka Honey based on the concentration of the naturally occurring compound, methylglyoxal. The unique concentration of methylglyoxal contributes to the characteristics of Manuka honey and sets it apart from other honeys. Methylglyoxal honey testing is now a recognized standard for producers of Manuka honey. Working in conjunction with scientists, Manuka Health also pioneered the process of extracting and measuring the beneficial compounds of BIO New Zealand Propolis™, making it the world’s first propolis with certified levels of bioactives.
Manuka Health develops, manufactures and markets their own products to assure quality control and traceability from beehive to shelf. All raw materials meet rigorous standards of quality and safety to ensure bioactive compound levels are maintained. Every batch of MGO™ Manuka and BIO New Zealand Propolis™ is tested in their ISO certified in-house laboratory. Only the most sustainable practices are utilized in beekeeping, harvesting and processing to minimize the impact on the honey bees and the beautiful, unique and pristine countryside.
