I read a LOT of scientific papers on Manuka Honey many, many years ago. They were using on throat cancer at Christie Hospital. It CURES acid reflux, not just hides it like Omeprazole & the rest of the prazoles. Unfortunately finding the papers now is next to impossible BUT 20yrs ago I CURED my acid reflux (the consultant told me the best I could do was to put bed up on blocks - bleedin idiot!- in 3-4months by taking 1tsp of 10UMF Manuka on a bit of bread or toast 3 x daily. Never had it since as I start the treatment now for just 1 wk if I feel it might come back. It cured a nasty Spider bite (not UK spiders) hubby had for years. I use it on wounds. It's amazing stuff.

I agree this one is nearly useless, you need 10+UMF for anything BUT don't be tempted to buy 15+UMF or 20+UMF as they are often FAR too expensive & do very little more than the 10+ UMF - which is the 'sweet spot'.

the NPA rating is 5+ which means low rating for anti-bacterial strength which is the whole point of manuka honey. being sold for the name rather than the actual benefits provided. basically this particular product isn't much better than normal honey.

£70 for a jar of Manuka would have been something with a NPA/MGO/UMF rating of 20+/800+ which is one where you would actually see a health benefit from. My comment was in regard to this particular one from Lidl where there is very little difference to normal honey.

Yeah i have heard that but this is a deals site for poor folks - who on here can afford £70 for a bottle of honey that may or may not help yer health oot?

As far as i am aware there have been no real medical experiments that confirm its benefits?

But yeah the lidl stuff is a bit disingenous!

Don't disagree with you there... I definitely wouldn't spend that much on it.

The honey used in medicine is medical grade honey which is very different to what you buy off the shelves. Not to say that the stuff off the shelf it doesn't have health benefits... just nothing that has been fully verified yet to the best of my knowledge.

Hi, I have gastroesophageal reflux disease, on esomeprazole for years. I would dearly love to discontinue the tabs, not least because I worry about possible long-term detrimental side effects, also not completely effective.
I found your story encouraging, and I'd like to try Manuka honey too. Please let me know which brand you recommend. Thanks.

Very funny
100% New Zealand honey and it’s rating is still 5+. I suspect it’s multi floral which will also bring down the price but it’s a weekend deal, it’s designed to get people in store so may even be a loss leader. Scientific evidence suggest a lot of the promoted benefits don’t really exist. The few medical benefits are suggested are done by often limited and poor quality evidence.

I wonder why an expensive product that is a multi million pound industry globally has not had a large, high quality study carried out. I’m sure the businesses that make so much profit from it could easily fund such research, conflicts of interest aside of course, but I doubt they need to bother given current sales figures. Higher ratings are supposed to be “better” and are far more expensive but I also wonder how much of this is simply down to marketing, anecdotal evidence and very appeal of honey being natural and “traditional”.

Anyway just enjoy some cheap Manuka honey
I didn't book into it but the NPA rating I never heard about UMF has always been standard, so if it's UMF certified fair play otherwise they just brought some in house certification with lower manuka content probably put 5 spoon of manuka 5UMF in whole drum of batch
