Manuka Honey Methylglyoxal

Methylglyoxal (MG)
MG (sometimes called MGO) is the major antibacterial component of manuka honey. MG is usually found in only small quantities in most honey, but exists in highly concentrated forms in manuka honey. In general, the higher concentration of MG, the higher the antibacterial potency of the honey. MG has demonstrated a strong ability to destroy Staphylococcus aureus, E. coli, Psudomonas aeruginosa, MRSA, and many other bacterial strains.
