TA40+ Jarrah Honey
A POWERFUL HEALER
Mankind has used honey for its antibacterial and healing benefits since cavemen times, with cave paintings in existence to prove it. Jarrah honey just has more of those antibacterial and healing benefits. It's the low glucose levels and highly antimicrobial properties that makes it a particularly powerful healer... with a delicious taste. Our jarrah honey has a Total Activity [TA] rating of antimicrobial strength. This may be 10+, 20+ 30+, 40+ etc; dependent on the harvest & test results. We use an independent laboratory to determine the TA levels. Recently findings conducted by the Australian government, via the Collaborative Research Centre for Honey Bee Products (see CRCHBP for more info) on antioxidant activity in honey has found that UAF (Unified Antioxidants Factor) "of Manuka honey can be 300 and Jarrah honey around 600. Antioxidants are compounds that help protect body cells against free radical damage that leads to oxidation and subsequent cell damage. Free radicals can potentially accelerate the ageing process and aid disease."
