Manuka Loves your guts!

Why your gut health needs a dose of liquid gold!

Study after study illustrates the potential of manuka honey to be one of your greatest allies in the fight against stomach concerns. Head over to Reddit and find hundreds of tales reporting that it has cleared or greatly reduced symptoms of issues like IBD and Crohn’s disease. But why is it so effective? Let’s begin with the basics.

What makes Manuka so special in the first place?

If you’re here, you likely know all about the unique component of manuka honey - MGO. Short for methylglyoxal, this is the magic ingredient that gives manuka honey its superpowers. You probably also know that MGO is a highly effective anti-inflammatory and antibacterial agent. So let’s take a closer look.

Inflammation, Bacteria, and Your Gut

Manuka honey is a powerful source of antioxidants. Antioxidants reduce oxidants which cause inflammation. Almost every disease is caused or exacerbated by inflammation.

When you pair this with manuka honey’s antibacterial benefits, it starts to become clearer why it can be such a boon for your digestive health. Studies show manuka is highly effective against over 50 bacteria strains, many of which can be found in the gut. Additionally, manuka honey creates a prebiotic called fructo-oligosaccharides, which support your gut’s probiotic content.

So now that you know why manuka honey should be a part of your gut health routine, you need to know how to take it! We recommend one tablespoon per day, broken down into three teaspoons taken about 15 minutes before a meal or maximal gut support.
