Here at Manuka Doctor, we have always believed that Mānuka honey is a delicious way to start the day. Now, it seems that Royal-to-Be Meghan Markle is also a fan, and enjoys Mānuka honey and bee pollen for breakfast.
According to Hello Magazine, Megan revealed in her now-closed blog The Tig that “her breakfast of choice is steel-cut oats served with bananas or fruit topped with Mānuka honey and bee pollen.”
What makes Mānuka honey so special?
Not all honey is created equal. Mānuka honey is derived from bees that forage on the Mānuka bush in New Zealand.
The number on the front of Manuka Doctor honey pots represents the mg per kg of Methylglyoxal (MGO). The greater the number, the higher the concentration of MGO and the stronger the antimicrobial activity.
Laboratory tests have shown that MGO displays antimicrobial properties and its level within Mānuka Honey can be related to the killing of some bacteria.
This is what makes Mānuka honey such a special honey.
Why should you choose Manuka Doctor Mānuka Honey?
Manuka Doctor honey is the finest quality Mānuka Honey naturally and responsibly sourced in New Zealand. All our honey is tested and rated in line with the MGO rating system which states the amount of Methylglyoxal (MGO) in each pot. The higher the rating, the higher the concentration of MGO.
All of Manuka Doctor’s MGO Mānuka Honey is 100% New Zealand Mānuka Honey that has been independently tested to show it meets the New Zealand Government’s definition of Mānuka Honey.
Every pot of our honey is fully traceable, authentic Mānuka Honey, from hive to home.
So, what is Bee Pollen?
Bee Pollen is a highly nutritious substance, considered to be one of nature’s most complete foods. It comes in little gold-coloured, sweet-tasting granules, and is gathered by bees when they collect nectar.
While honey contains all the sugars that bees need, pollen provides them with a high source of proteins, vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
