Manuka honey, what is it?
Manuka is a shrub growing wild only in New Zealand. The highly fragrant manuka flowers attract bees to their pollen, which produces this creamy honey with a pronounced taste and colour. With its opaque colour and slightly caramelized flavour with hints of eucalyptus, manuka honey has many health benefits.
Manuka honey has proven its effectiveness in many areas, ingested or applied to the skin.
Studies conducted by Professor Molan (New Zealand) and Professor Thomas Henle (University of Dresden, Germany) show that manuka honey has antibacterial properties due to its exceptional concentration of methylglyoxal.
How to choose your Manuka Honey?
Methylglyoxal or MGO is the molecule responsible for the anti-microbial activity of honeys. The German Professor Thomas Henle, in particular, has shown in the course of his research that Manuka honey contains 10 times more MGO than a classic honey.
The effectiveness of Manuka Honey is measured according to its concentration of active ingredients. Each laboratory has developed its own measurement system, so you will find on the honey jars variable indicators:
- MGO 100+: is used in prevention, to stimulate the immune system, sweeten drinks and maintain your health on a daily basis. (Maintenance Level)
- MGO™ 250+: recommended to fight small bacterial and fungal infections. (Useful level)
- MGO 400+ : is used externally to treat wounds, light burns, winter ailments and mainly to reduce coughing... (Higher level with very high activity)
- MGO 550+: the most powerful, it is used to fight against all types of highly resistant infections, as well as for tasting. (Maximum activity)
In order to establish a classification, MGO indexes are affixed to the labels of jars of Manuka honey. We guarantee the concentration and anti-bacterial activity of your honey.
Uses of Manuka Honey in the Daily Life
Manuka honey is used whenever it is necessary to strengthen the organism, to fight against a bacterial or fungal imbalance (due to fungi). This natural remedy is also used in hospitals in New Zealand to fight against the dreaded staphylococcus aureus bacterium, where chemical antibiotics have no effect or to overcome the helicobacter pylori responsible for stomach ulcers.
In addition to its nutritional values, Manuka honey :
- Stimulates the immune system
- Fighting oral infections
- Effectively combats winter ailments (sore throat, runny nose, etc.).
- Soothes irritations and stomach aches
Directions for use: Take 1 teaspoon 3 times a day morning and evening before meals (do not give to children under 12 months).
Apply to the skin:
The anti-microbial activity of manuka honey gives it superior healing properties. It moistens the epidermis while blocking the proliferation of bacteria. It thus promotes tissue repair in record time.
- Cleanses problem skin, fights acne.
- Effectively fades even old scars
- Eczema Control
- Sanitizes wounds
- Relieves and regenerates light burns

Is your honey labtest ?Yes of course, lab tested in Katmandu and Paris. You can ask for it at email@example.com
Is Mad Honey legal ?Mad honey is legal in the European countries and in the majority of the others, this honey is however prohibited in India, Mexico, Brazil, Canada & Australia
How long does honey keep?The date on the jars is an indication of freshness: honey can be kept for several years without ever becoming unfit for consumption, but over time it may lose some of its aromas and taste characteristics.
Is your honey pasteurized?Absolutely not, on the contrary, we prioritize a natural honey which will not have undergone any transformation, except a light filtering to remove the large particles of propolis, pollen and wax which are naturally found in honey. In order to be a supplier of BEELIXIR, each beekeeper is bound by a set of specifications.
Why is there mottling in my jar?Honey has a low thermal conductivity, unlike glass jars. Under the effect of a variation in temperature, the jar undergoes a slight expansion while its contents will keep its shape. An empty space is then created and will be occupied by air: marbling appears. They are a sign of low humidity of the honey and therefore of a good storage capacity. They prove that the honey has not undergone any handling that could alter its structure: heating, mixing, etc...
Is it normal for my honey to change its appearance?Honey crystallizes naturally. There can therefore be two phases if it is in the process of crystallization (liquid phase on top, solid phase underneath).
Is honey lower in calories than sugar?Honey is 25% less caloric than sugar (100g sugar = 400 kcal, 100g honey = 300 kcal), and its sweetening power is 1.3 times higher than sucrose.
Can I put my honey in the fridge?It is not recommended to keep your honey in the fridge. The cold increases the phenomenon of crystallization and therefore hardening.
Crystallized honey? You put sugar in it?Each beekeeper who is a partner of Beelixir is bound by a simple and yet very strict set of specifications, as there are no compromises. We do not add sugar to our honey. It is moreover forbidden by law. This fraudulent process is called the adulteration of honey. An article of the CETAM of Lorraine denounces the frauds (labelling --> origin) or adulteration on the honeys of China. Most often sold in a totally opaque way under the name "honeys from EC / non-EC countries". This name, which is legal, often covers a high proportion of honey from China.
I have two identical honeys at home, but they don't taste the same. Is that normal?The taste of a honey is the result of several uncontrollable factors: The climate, the gleaned flowers, etc... In this respect, a honey will always be a unique, 100% natural product, for which bees decide to eat the flowers according to their desires. The taste can therefore vary slightly from one harvest to another.
