CycloPower™ – a biotech breakthrough revolutionising natural health

Manuka Health New Zealand has been working closely with Japanese scientists in the development of a breakthrough natural bioactive booster for more highly effective supplementation. Scientists at Manuka Health have developed the first two products in the range, featuring MGO 400+ Manuka Honey supercharged with CycloPower™ in capsules and chewable tablets.

CycloPower™ - The Power of Cyclodextrins

The discovery behind CycloPower™ was made by a team of Japanese researchers led by Professor Keijii Terao of Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology. The scientists found that cyclodextrins — beneficial plant-derived oligosaccharide molecules — can act as a natural booster, enhancing activity and delivery of natural ingredients in the body.

Since that discovery, Professor Terao has been working closely with Manuka Health to bring the benefits of cyclodextrin-boosted natural products to the world. Manuka Health have branded the resulting technology 'CycloPower™' — 'cyclo' in reference to cyclodextrins; and, 'power' because of the natural boosting action.


What makes MGO™ Manuka Honey so special

New Zealand Manuka Honey is renowned worldwide as one of nature's most prized foods.

Scientific research has confirmed that naturally occurring methylglyoxal is an important compound in Manuka Honey.  Manuka Health’s MGO™ Manuka Honey Certification System is based on this ground-breaking scientific evidence, certifiying Manuka Honey according to methylglyoxal content.  Every batch of MGO™ Manuka Honey is tested and certified, guaranteeing the level of methylgloxyal as indicated on the label.

Methylglyoxal is only found in high levels in some Manuka Honey, so testing and certification gives consumers clear indication of the amount of methylglyoxal present in the honey.
