DescriptionThis Raw Ulmo 62 Honey comes from the Patagonia Rainforest Region of Chile. This silky honey is made from the nectar of the Ulmo (Eucryphia cordifolia), a white flowering tree only found in the Los Lagos region of Southern Chile and Argentina. The Corcovado Apiary is located on Isla Tranqui (Tranquil Island), a beautiful island where the people live sustainably. No pesticides are allowed on the island. Everything is simple and everyone relies on each other. On the island, surrounded by cool deep turquoise waters, a Honey Bee Sanctuary has been established – a safe, abundantly flowering land – cultivated for the preservation of bees. We invite you to taste the beauty of Isla Tranqui.
Health Benefits of Ulmo Honey
Ulmo Honey exhibits antifungal activity. It has also been shown to aid in the treatment of respiratory tract infection symptoms (such as cough or sore throat). In Chile, it is used to ease the common cold, help combat fatigue, and accelerate wound healing. Finally, it supports a healthy digestive tract.
In a study comparing the antimicrobial activity of Ulmo and Manuka honey, it was found that Ulmo had GREATER antimicrobial activity for all 5 strains of MRSA tested and SIMILAR antimicrobial activity against E. coli and P. aeruginosa.*
*Health claims have been shown through scientific research, but not verified by the FDA.
Raw means it has undergone less processing making it higher in healthy enzymes and retaining a distinctive flavor. It has been lab-tested to ensure it is pesticide-free, herbicide-free, antibiotic-free, unadulterated, pure, raw honey.
Raw honey has been processed less than conventional honey. It has not been stirred for long periods or heated above normal hive temperature. Independent research shows that it has more than double the amount of healthy enzymes than conventionally processed honey.
Mono-floral Honey comes from only one site and is not blended with honey from other locations. This captures the distinctive floral sources and retains the unique flavor and properties of that location.
