TranzAlpine Honey Product ‘100% propolis’ 1600x4508

Protect and Defend your Health with Organic Honey

July, 2022

While the new normal has us all masked up on high alert for viruses and diseases, we often wait until we start to feel sick to find ways to support our health and immune system. Being proactive rather than reactive in terms of health and well-being has never been more important. 

Our organic cold and flu protection range not only helps to treat the symptoms of colds and flu, but can also support the immune system naturally without needing to visit a Dr.

Manuka honey has been studied in detail and it has been scientifically proven in its ability to prevent bacterial growth, reduce microbial infections and be a powerful wound healer.

Your Best Defence every Winter

While you don’t need to wait until winter to boost your immunity to colds and flu, it is usually the time these bugs show up. As the weather changes, it brings with it the arrival of sore throats, runny noses, coughs and colds.  

Having an organic Manuka honey cold and flu product on hand can help you banish nasty colds and flu before they begin.

While following a healthy balanced diet is important to help your immune system be ready to fight infection, so are natural health supplements like organic honey

It is easy to introduce honey into your diet and it can be used as a healthy sugar replacement in drinks, in baking, on roasted veggies, in smoothies, on snacks with waffles and so much more.

Organic Manuka Honey is only found in New Zealand. It is a rare kind of honey and is coveted worldwide for its many unique and powerful health benefits. It is brimming with a rich compound called methylglyoxal or MGO and can range from 50mg of methylglyoxal per kg up to 650mg and higher.

The MG-MGO Manuka Grading System

Both MG and UMF are trusted Manuka honey grading systems and both measure MGO (methylglyoxal) content. Testing for MGO levels is important as they can vary greatly, as not all Manuka honey is equal.

The MG Manuka Honey grading system is a precise and reliable test that simply and directly reflects the MGO content of the honey. 

The higher the MGO content the higher the grade of honey and the more powerful its health benefits.

For example, there is at least 550mg of methylglyoxal per kilogram in the TranzAlpine Organic Manuka honey with an MGO 550+ rating. Sourced from the native organic New Zealand Manuka tree (Leptospermum Scoparium), the bees are only able to visit these flowers for a few weeks in the summer when they bloom.

There is no substitute for the real product and you can taste the superior quality of this organic honey.

Organic health and wellbeing honey products

We used some of our highest MG-rated organic Manuka honey to create a range of potent health and well-being products for the whole family. 

We wanted to address some of the most pressing cold and flu concerns. Things like sore throats, tight chests and nasty coughs are just some of the symptoms that can make a winter cold feel awful. 

So we created a range of healthy, sugar-free alternatives to over-the-counter remedies that also supported the immune system, and provided antioxidants, antivirals and antimicrobials, just to name a few.

The 5g SnapPak sachets are the easiest way to get your honey fix whether you are hiking, travelling, at the gym, on a road trip or snacking at a family picnic.
