New research confirming the powerful antimicrobial properties of Jarrah honey is set to rival Manuka.
The new certification process, developed by an industry and food testing laboratory in Australia, authenticates honey from Western Australia has medicinal properties, confirming Jarrah is packed with antioxidant and antimicrobial properties.
Unique to Western Australia Jarrah is known to have higher antimicrobial properties than Manuka. Antimicrobial means Jarrah honey can help to inhibit bacterial growth, stimulate tissue growth and enhance healing.
Ogilvy’s use an independent laboratory to determine the TA (Total Activity) levels and scientists have developed a process to certify Jarrah so the health benefits are recognised worldwide. TA can be thought of as the antibacterial potency scale of Jarrah honey, the higher the TA the greater the antimicrobial strength. The more severe the infection the higher the TA rating is required to kill the bacteria.
Jarrah 10+ TA is suitable to aid the healing of sore throats and mouth ulcers, bad breath, minor wounds and skin infections, minor burns and sunburn, yeast infections and one teaspoon is equivalent to one serving of an antioxidant.
For more severe burns, severe skin infections and infected wounds and major yeast infections Jarrah 20+ TA would be required.
Jarrah is a natural healing honey for pets too and can be applied directly on to wounds to fight infections and aid healing.
Jarrah is a must for your store cupboard and medicine cupboard in readiness for coughs and colds. The antimicrobial potency of Jarrah will help to fight infection and relieve sore throats and coughs. It is recommended you don’t heat Jarrah above 30º C to preserve the natural enzymes.
Jarrah produces a delicious dark, syrupy honey with a caramel taste. It is not as sweet as other honeys due to its low glucose and high fructose levels.
