MGO an alternative origin story (MGO origin paper in press). The summary of this paper is that MGO originates in pollen within Manuka honey during the aging process and the polymer that was identified in the pollen was that of glyoxal.
These discoveries based on radical formation and its importance in Manuka honey bioactivity do not sit well with the current scientific model that disease is a result of radical damage in our bodies and we need to use highly pure anti-oxidants to improve our vitality and well-being. I disagree with the supplement industry and I am proposing an alternative view point, which I will explain to facilitate the discussion around human health and well-being.
