Comvita UMF® 5+ Active Manuka Honey contains UMF® antibacterial activity in addition to the hydrogen peroxide found in other honeys. UMF® indicates the naturally occurring antibacterial property of UMF® Manuka Honey. 

Comvita Manuka Honey is sourced from New Zealand's remote, pollution free native forests and is world renowned for its unique flavour.

Comvita UMF® 5+ Active Manuka Honey is guaranteed to be at least UMF®5 and has been verified by an independent laboratory to have proven levels of unique activity which was first identified by Dr. Peter Molan at New Zealand's Waikato University.  Only some Manuka Honeys from New Zealand have this special activity which has now gained a world-wide reputation for its value in both skin care and maintenance of digestive health.

The NZ Honey Association has registered UMF® as a trademark so that the antibacterial activity of Manuka honey cannot be misrepresented. The UMF® number comes from a laboratory test for antibacterial activity, with the honey being compared with a standard reference antiseptic (phenol) for potency. UMF® 20+ would be equivalent in antiseptic potency to a 20% solution of phenol. Manuka Honey which is tested and proven to have the UMF® (Unique Manuka Factor) is labelled accordingly.

Special techniques are used to ensure that Comvita UMF® 5+ Active Manuka Honey reaches you in optimum condition, just as nature intended.

The UMF® properties of Comvita Active Manuka Honey may provide relief from the symptoms of indigestion and dyspepsia.  In Vitro laboratory testing of UMF® Active Manuka Honey has been found to be effective in enhancing the growth of the probiotic bacterial species Bifidobacterium.
