Hi all I am brand new to this forum, my name is Peter and I suffer from COPD and just recovering from pneumonia, not good at age of 75.
I have just started to take Manuka honey 16+ UMF r, and thought it worth pointing out for Manuka Honey to be affective you must buy the genuine product, this is marked UMF with the strength eg 16+the UMF will have an R in a circle, it should also show the licence number of the producer and state bottled and packed in New Zealand. Some Manuka honey may show 16+ active or have TA on the label this is not the same as the genuine health giving properties of UMF r, which is the registered trade mark of Manuka Honey. Please note genuine Manuka honey under 5 will not show the registered trade mark as this has the same properties of non healing Honeys, for best results try for a minimum of 10+ or above. I hope people will find this post helpful if they are thinking of trying Manuka Honey.
