    Hello everyone,

    Try Mustafa shopping center...they got a wide range of honey (australia, new zealand, etc etc)

    Not sure if they got the one in the photo. Go there and look around, u be surprised.
    (yes i think there's manuka honey, but other brands)

    Why must it be this particular brand?
    Is it special/better or something?

    I don't know leh. Just that my relative e-mailed me asking me to get it for him...
    For me personally, I don't even know what does 'Manuka' mean...

    Heard of this honey before... something like - this honey isn't used for eating, but for treating skin problems. The bees that make this honey get their pollen from this plant that is native to New Zealand, something like that....

    Haven't seen it before in Singapore, but yeah, as sbs99 said, try Mustafa.

    No, you can eat it.
    It's just that it has medicinal qualities and it doesn't come cheap.
    $50-60 for a 250g bottle.

    Hello Canew:

    You can buy the Manuka Honey in local pharmacy like Natural Farm, but not the brand you are looking for.

    Manuka Honey has very rich medicine value. It is known for its antibacterial property.
    Our body natural enzyme will destroy the antibacterial property in most honey.
    Honey with higher UMF number, will remain stable and potent in our body to fight off infection.

    Do not use warm water and a metal spoon when taking honey, as it will breakdown its antibacterial activity.

    To me it is a good “Alternative” supplements for patients undergoing radiotherapy and suffer from internal infection. Remember it is “Alternative” not medically proven yet in this case.

    As mentioned, I also don't know.

    UPDATE: Called my relative asking him for the importance of brand. He said no need to get this particular brand (Convita). But must get UMF 20+.

    Now I don't understand what does UMF 20+ mean??? Just that Silence Sky mentioned that it is more 'potent.'
