The Whole Story

Active, Unheated Manuka Honey

Active, Unheated Manuka Honey

Honey has been used throughout history for its beneficial properties.  Manuka trees grow only in New Zealand, and of all the manuka honey produced there, only a very small percentage is shown to contain the active manuka factor responsible for this honey’s antibacterial activity.

At Futurebiotics, our rare manuka honey comes from New Zealand where beekeepers set up their hives in the middle of pristine, indigenous manuka groves and where there are no paved roads in order to reduce environmental contamination.  In fact, our hives meet the strictest organic standards in the world.

The bees gather nectar from the flowers of the manuka bush, which blooms just six weeks of the year, instilling in the honey the unique characteristics of the plant, including an antibacterial manuka factor not found in any other honey.  And, Futurebiotics manuka honey is tested and verified to be free of over 200 chemical residues.

By definition, organic honey may not be pasteurized or heated to temperatures higher than normal hive temperatures, so our certified organic manuka honey is processed utilizing an exclusive freeze-drying technology that preserves the honey’s enzymatic activity and transforms the honey into a powder.   Our certified organic manuka honey is tested and verified to possess and provide the same antiseptic properties as a 15% phenol solution. 

You can find active, unheated organic manuka honey in Futurebiotics Certified Organic Seasonal Immunity™.

    Putting the "Certified" in Organic

    Not every product on the market that says "organic" is certified organic. In fact, many supplement formulas only include one or two ingredients that are organic, while the rest are not organic at all. And, even if every ingredient in a supplement product is "made from organic ingredients," most supplements don't meet the stringent manufacturing and certification standards required to earn the distinction to call their products USDA Certified Organic.

    At Futurebiotics, every single ingredient in every single Futurebiotics Certified Organic product, without exception, is Certified Organic
