The potency of the active components in manuka honeys break down very slowly over time and exposure to sunlight accelerates this process so honey sellers often use amber jars. At By Buzzz we use clear jars so you can see the consistency and rich colour of the honey you purchase. We freight to you in shock proof cylindrical boxes so no light touches the jar. Best way to keep your honey once you receive it is in a cool dark cupboard or in the box it comes to you in.
Manuka honeys rated under 356 MGO (12+ NPA) are great taken daily for boosting general health and wellbeing, for colds and flu, for building immune system strength and, topically, for first aid, wound healing and skin care. Manuka honeys rated above this are best used for more severe infections and as an antibiotic. Do not use these strengths for everyday use and, as with a course of prescribed antibiotics, also consume foods to rebuild your gut bacteria/biome if you are using stronger manuka honeys frequently.
