Passport To Purity: Pacific Resources International Is The First Company To Introduce Americans To Manuka Honey Committed To Sharing New Zealand’s Wonders With The World

Mark Twain famously wrote, ͞Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.͟With that very spirit of adventure guiding him, American businessman David Noll some three decades ago journeyed to New Zealand and soon found that the course of both his professional and personal life had been altered forever. Not only did David marry a local Kiwi, but he fell equally in love with her native land – a country still sheltered like Shangri-la in natural purity and more than ready to continue sharing its life-affirming wonders with the world.

17 Life Changing Reasons You Need A Jar Of Manuka Honey

by Sierra Bright Manuka honey, like other raw honey, is truly a gift from the bees. With a rich history and impressive profile, this honey has reason to be celebrated.

Manuka honey is actually graded according to its non-peroxide antibacterial potency, referred to as Unique Manuka Factor (UMF). Although the medical fraternity has been slow to recognize the healing capacity of manuka honey, it has slowly gained acceptance in the treatment of wounds and burns. Eventually, in 2007, FDA approved its use in...

For consumers seeking high-quality Manuka honey products from New Zealand that can enhance their cuisine and potentially improve their health, a high pollen count would, on the surface, seem to make perfect sense. Honey. Bees. Pollen. What could possibly be wrong with that equation? As it turns out - a great deal. Why We Shouldn’t Count on Pollen Counts According to John Rawcliffe, General Manager of New Zealand’s respected Unique Manuka Factor (UMF) Honey Association, developing a fool-proof definition of Manuka honey has proven easier...
