IT'S known that the indigenous people of New Zealand have been using the Manuka tree for its curative properties to help treat ailments like open wounds, ulcers, gastritis and stomach aches. In 1982, Dr Peter Molan of University of Waikato discovered that certain strains of manuka honey possess natural antibiotic and antibacterial activities, not found in ordinary honey. He named this activity a "Unique Manuka Factor" or UMF. Since then, studies have been carried out to validate these long-held traditions.
 Spirits Bay Bioactive Manuka Honey is harvested from the unique Manuka bush, Leptospermum scoparium, found in the remote, isolated and protected Maori forest in the far north of NZ. These Maori forests are far from civilization, far from pollution and any other flowering plants that may dilute the honey's purity. This highly prized honey is not only rare but a challenge to harvest and produce. SpiritsBay Bioactive Manuka Honey is revered and recognised for its superior quality and honey purity. All SpiritsBay honeys are tested for its UMF by a certified laboratory using the testing method developed by Dr Molan. SpiritsBay Manuka Honey is so authentic and superior that Dr Molan uses it extensively for his clinical trials. Spirits Bay Bioactive Manuka honey has a range of therapeutic and healing properties.
