Each to their own but I'm sticking with Manuka Doctor, and it sounds more official lol
One teaspoon a day of the 70MGO is fine for everyday use and at this price very cost effective, when treating sore throats, etc higher grades (anything higher than 70 is fine, try it, see what you think if doesn't do anything for you ok you tried it, I tried it in 2018 and i still take it now, the choice is yours my friend.
OK... Genuine question now... For someone in my very painfully close family who must be obeyed and likes expensive things, and who likes natural treatments and shuns medicines and doctors... Ahem. For 'stomach irritations' and mild gastritis type symptoms and the possibility of H Pylori, we've seen a lot of decent medical reports and research papers that recommend various natural products including Matula Tea (not tried yet), Lactoferrin (currently part of the daily rattle of pills that she walks around with), Mastic Gum Capsules (also currently taking daily) and Zinc L Carnosine (yep, she be taking that too) and we keep seeing Manuka Honey on the list. Now... call me Mr Skeptical BUT as much as I like the idea that nature resolves these issues I'd also be tempted, if it were me, to just take the antibiotics and PPI's and be done in 2 or 3 weeks. I don't have the patience for what has been stated as 2-6 months recovery time on a 'natural' regimen. And add to that I looked up the Manuka Honey like she asked and nearly wept at the price before getting confused at the enormous range of 'ratings' on them and the enormous range of price. I nearly bought her a budget jar in Sainsbury's until I noticed it said 'manuka and clear honey blend' and thought 'this ain't gonna be medicinal at all...' Plus so many people swear by the medicinal (anecdotal) use of honey anyway so I'm thinking there's a bit of snake oil selling going on and a lot of the power of the mind... But, I'm nothing if not open minded... So does anyone have any actual real experience of this kind of thing. What 'rating' would you use for a budget minded person (I'll be damned if I'm spending much over £20 on a jar of damned honey - I'd expect to OWN the bees at that price - I certainly wouldn't want to be paying for a honey so ineffective that I might as well be using one of the bear-shaped squeezy bottles for all the medicinal use I get out of it. So what 'rating'? Does it actually work for things like that? How often do you use it? For what kind of a period or is this going to be a lifelong thing? How do you take it and how much? How long does a jar last? Can Nutella do the same good? (just kidding). Is it a stick it on your toast or bung a teaspoon in your tea job, or is it a 'must be taken on a teaspoon like a medicine' thing?
Dunno. Rowse is about as big a name in honey as you get.

The best you can get! Much lower MGO are selling for higher prices at other places. Harvested and packed in New Zealand. 100% New Zealand Mānuka Honey. Certified by New Zeala… Read more
I buy it for taste only, it is common across the shelves here with lots of choices at reasonable prices.
Respect your opinion. :)
Most Manuka 'deals' are IMO still a con and a rip off.
For the 40+ version that you mention do you eat it daily for a period of time to see any health benefits? I appreciate others share of experience with the honey as I am new user. Think the most expensive and best grade honey I bought was Comvita something along that name and I did notice some health difference. Thanks
This is a very good price for the brand and high MGO - the lowest price I can find it for here in New Zealand is the equivalent of £86 and this is only because of a 40% off sale. I usually buy the same brand but MGO 40+ however the cost is much more affordable at £2.75 for the same sized jar.

Not long now before normal everyday honey will cost as much. Save the bees!
This trend happen from misinformation. People heard something and manufactures selling to eco healthy cash spenders. It is in use to help skin healing in serious treatments in some hospitals and in veterinary but not so effective by domestic dressings. I’m happy to pay £10 for real honey from local know source than £3 for sugary fake honey in supermarket but £50...
For this I’m grateful and £50 up (excited) ;) (lol)
Join the manuka fad and pay silly money for honey (confused) Unless of course you have a large open wound that you need an antiseptic dressing for, but you could use Savlon or Germaline which are both A LOT cheaper
Oh dear, you didn’t get my response either (and the OP even liked it) (popcorn) Well done on the pun - although for a literate, you can’t spell... perhaps it should be LiteralFool (lol)
Thanks for taking the thyme all the same
I think people should use this link to get a reality check on what is being offered here 40 MGO is a waste of time and money. If you believe that this 'Manuka honey' has any health benefits, then think again. The UMF rating reflects the concentration of MG. To be considered potent enough to be therapeutic, manuka honey needs a minimum rating of 10 UMF. A bit more info
Now that's the best way to buy pure and genuine honey.
Well bee keepers in the UK are hardly going to raise their hands up & say Manuka honey is better than their own.
Have a look at this- https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-4361616/Which-manuka-honey-really-good-you.html
Manuka doctor is one of the genuine companies however its products are little or no better than the £9 Manuka honey you can get in most supermarkets. Very inflated price for ordinary Manuka honey
Interesting read. How can they know bees ‘only’ go to Manukau bushes?
Real honey in a plastic container .
70MGO doesn’t even touch the sides. You’ll need something like MGO 515+, or UMF 15 to reap any noticeable benefit from Manuka honey. I bought some Steens Honey UMF 15+ in Sainsbury’s last night on offer for £18. https://www.sainsburys.co.uk/gol-ui/product/honey/steens-raw-umf15-manuka-honey-250g
