Why is Mānuka honey so special?

Unique health benefits

During hundreds of years, Māori have used the Mānuka plant to treat body burns, infections and wounds.
Nowadays, Mānuka is one of the most unique nature products in the world. Its popularity is due to the numerous health benefits that it provides thanks to the high concentration of a sugar molecule that acts as an antibacterial compound, the Methylglyoxal (MGO).
