Propolis is a resin-like compound produced by bees and thought to fight infections, kill bacteria, heal wounds and act as a strong antioxidant.

Modern science is re-discovering propolis health properties -there are evidence to suggest that intake of propolis can help balance immune system and provide a powerful natural antioxidant protection.

New Zealand Propolis

New Zealand Unique environment promotes local plants to produce bioactive resins to protect and heal themselves.

Bees collect resins from plants (some collect pollen, others resin). It is with these resins and their own enzymes that bees will make propolis to protect the hive.


The composition of propolis varies considerably from country to country along with vegetation, climatic conditions and state of ecology.


Researchers have shown CAPE to be the key compound responsible for propolis’s health properties.

New Zealand propolis contains exceptionally high levels of caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE) along with 5 other major beneficial flavonoids.

Researchers have shown CAPE to be the key compound responsible for propolis’s health properties.

Manuka Honey


Manuka honey is a unique New Zealand honey with remarkable health benefits. It is produced by bees from the nectar of a plant leptospermum scoparium, more commonly known as manuka.


New Zealand Manuka honey contains astonishingly high levels of the organic compound methylglyoxal, or MGO.

Everyday honey might have MGO concentrations of

2-5mg/kg. By contrast, Manuka honey MGO concentrations can reach as high as 1000mg/kg.


MGO explains a significant proportion of Manuka honey’s unique properties, and it’s MGO that makes Manuka honey so remarkable.

Manuka honey and propolis

The complex properties of New Zealand CAPE-rich propolis and  Manuka honey are attracting the interest of researchers from all over the world. At Helena Health, we’re committed to discovering, publicising and sharing the results of these studies with you. 


The MGO levels of

Manuka honey

Manuka honeys vary. When choosing a honey for health benefits, ensure the honey contains MGO levels higher than 100mg/kg.

At Helena Health, we print the MGO concentrations of Manuka honey on our jars. The MGO levels correspond to the MGO concentration of the honey inside. An MGO of 400, for example, means a Manuka honey contains at least 400mg of MGO per kilo. 


Harvested, packed, tested & certified in New Zealand

Helena Health propolis and manuka honey is produced and collected from bee-hives, located in remote pristine areas of New Zealand.


Helena Health is strictly following rigorous testing, certification and regulatory standards introduced by New Zealand’s Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) to ensure our manuka honey harvested, packed, tested and certified in New Zealand is genuine manuka honey.

Traceable origins 

Honeys with traceable origins typically include batch numbers on every jar – like every jar of Helena Health honey.


You can use a honey’s batch numbers to trace the honey back to its true origin, which is independently verified, thus proving the genuine origin of any jar of honey – Manuka or otherwise.

What are you using

the honey for? 

Today, many consumers use Manuka honey as a health supplement to support their wellbeing. Because it’s both scarce and unique, it’s usually pricier than everyday honey.


If you’re using a honey to support your immune system, fitness regime or for a related purpose, you may benefit from a high MGO Manuka honey. This table should help.
