Is anyone else taking this? If so what benefits have you seen. What and where is the cheapest you have paid for?
There is quite a lot of fake Manuka honey around, world consumption exceeds production by a long way, no idea how you can tell.

We use locally produced honey and support our local bees
thanks for that. My wife was prescribed it to boast her immune system. She got hers from a local health food shop.
Thanks for that link dove, very informative.
Thanks Dove .... us local beekeepers do appreciate the loyal support from our local customers.
Beekeeping is a fascinating (but expensive) hobby. For most beekeepers the income from honey sales barely covers costs .... but that isn't why we do it.
I've read some articles that suggest manuka is not more beneficial for health than good quality local honey .... just had better marketing! Personally, I don't like the TCP after-taste of manuka .... but some people love it.
Manuka has proven qualities in wound healing, there is a lot of fakery out there though.
I merely thought you had imbibed a tad of gin!
I had an elderly client ( mid 80s) and she had an abscess on her leg for over a year, doc tried everything, she used Manuka in a dressing, thinking she had nothing to lose , and it cleared it up.
