Irvine, California (Vocus) April 21, 2010
100% medical-grade Manuka honey products now available to natural/specialty, grocery, and other trade classes in the U.S. as well as online
Links Medical Products Inc. (LMP) will market the new ManukaMed brand of medical-grade Manuka honey products to the natural/specialty, grocery, and other trade classes in the U.S. The ManukaMed line of products is made from 100% medical-grade Manuka honey and is never a blend of Manuka honey.
Medical-grade Manuka honey is the versatile, safe, all-natural solution to a variety of internal and external health conditions. Extensive research demonstrates that it offers powerful bacteriostatic1, anti-inflammatory1, and antioxidant2,3 properties to help accelerate the healing process.
LMP is a leader in the manufacture and marketing of innovative, healthcare products for use in both acute and long-term care. The ManukaMed brand of products for general health and well-being include MANUKAhoney® Medical-grade Manuka Honey for numerous health conditions, MANUKAlozenges® Sore Throat Relief, and MANUKAbalm® Lip Therapy. Wound care products include MANUKApli® Sterile Wound Gel Dressing and MANUKAderm® Skin Protectant.
“The ManukaMed brand of products is unique among Manuka honey products available in the U.S.,” states Tom Buckley, CEO of Links Medical Products. “We harvest it from bees that pollinate the Manuka tree (a species known as Leptospermum scoparium), native only to New Zealand. And the ManukaMed brand carries the seal of the Molan Gold Standard™.”
The Molan Gold Standard is the internationally recognized certification of authentic Manuka honey. It is named for the pioneer researcher in the field, Professor Peter Molan, MBE. The Molan Gold Standard is licensed only to companies meeting Professor Molan’s standards for identifying and measuring the medicinal activity in Manuka honey, so it allows consumers to readily recognize authenticated medicinal Manuka honey.
LMP ensures complete traceability and control over the production of its medical-grade Manuka honey—from beehive to final product. This level of control is unique among Manuka honey companies who often buy honey on the open market or contract with multiple suppliers who do not have rigorous controls.
LMP also guarantees a reliable supply of medical-grade Manuka honey for its ManukaMed line of products through access to the Manuka forest; a long-term, relationship-building policy with landowners; and the development of new Manuka groves. Together with the New Zealand government, the company has pioneered a school for beekeepers to ensure essential skills are maintained and improved.
In addition, every step in the LMP production chain is carefully considered to ensure the ManukaMed brand of medical-grade Manuka honey products meets the highest standards. In association with medical professionals, Links Medical Products has developed stringent test methods for medical-grade Manuka honey.
