Manuka Honey

Try manuka honey!  First of all, it’s absolutely delicious!  Second, it battles some serious ailments effectively.  It can be used both topically and internally.  Honey producers have developed a scale for rating the anti-bacterial properties of manuka honey. The rating is called UMF, which stands for Unique Manuka Factor.  Some types will have a UMF rating on the jar but not be licensed, so look for a UMF license number on the jar to be sure you are getting the potency you are paying for.  I have tried three licensed brands purchased from Amazon, Tahi, Happy Valley, and Kiva, and my favorite has been the Tahi.  Wild Cape brand gets excellent reviews as well.  https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=tahi.  Try different potencies.  To be considered potent enough to be therapeutic, manuka honey needs a minimum rating of 10 UMF, but there are also 5+, 12+, 15+, 18+, and 20+ options.  The higher the UMF, the higher the price.
