How much Manuka honey is too much? Is the Methylglyoxal it contains safe?

There is a question and answer about this at the related links.

Q. How safe is Manuka honey containing Methylglyoxal?

A. Methylglyoxal is known to kill bacteria and may also have an effect on other cells. However, Methylglyoxal has been ingested for decades as a naturally-occuring compound in food without any negative consequences becoming apparent.

People with medical conditions such as Diabetes must of course be careful with any honey because of its sugar content.

Manuka honey with at least 150 mg/kg of Methylglyoxal (a rating of MGO150) is required to kill most common bacteria. That doesn't mean you have to consume 15% of a 1 kg jar - just that honey with a lesser rating won't be strong enough to do the job.

How do you take manuka honey?

Of course, one of the most popular ways to take Manuka honey is by ingesting it, either by itself or using it as a food additive to your favorite dishes. However, it’s also been a popular health remedy used by the indigenous population of New Zealand for many years, especially when it comes to skincare. Often, Manuka honey is used as an ingredient in topical skin lotions, creams, and moisturizers because it provides a host of antibacterial properties and can keep skin looking healthy and clean. I recently found out about Manuka honey-based skincare brand Au Natural Skinfood and quickly fell in love with all of their products, especially their AM Day Serum. This serum has much higher levels of Manuka honey than many of the alternative skincare products on the market. The best part is that the moisturizer is lightweight, deeply nourishing the skin without making it feel too heavy. For more information about Au Natural Skinfood’s range of Manuka honey products, contact them online or call 1 (833) 301-9622 (U.S.) or +64 3 595 1309 (N.Z.).
