New Zealand Totara Essence Manuka Honey Contains an exclusive Bioactive Totara™ utilizing modern biotechnology blended with ultra-high concentrated ginger extract and Black Pepper fused together with multi-floral Manuka Honey. A soothing, refreshing combination to support a healthy lifestyle.

Totara Essence is a food grade version of an ingredient called Totarol™ which is a natural extract from the Totara tree (Podocarpus totara), a species unique to New Zealand. Totarol and related compounds are produced in the Totara tree after approximately 150 years of growth and protect the tree from bacterial attacks, insects, diseases and other environmental influences, allowing the tree to grow for up to 1,000 years.

The Totara Essence is most potent when extracted from the heartwood of the Totara tree and we capture this live giving essence and add it to our honey.

Totara Essence is produced through a gentle process called supercritical extraction from the chipped heartwood of the Totara and this process allows it to be certified Organic by Bio Grow New Zealand.

Once extracted it is prepared in a special manner to meet the highest standards in GMP facilities to as Totara Essence.

On consumption of Totara Honey, you will notice a warming sensation in the throat and
stomach; this effect generated from active compounds in Ginger called Gingerol and
Zingerine as they progress through the body.

considerable time identify other synergistic extracts that may compliment Totara Essence and identified Ginger as being the right synergist.

medicine and it possesses antimicrobial and antifungal properties, as well as several
pharmaceutical properties.
