Medihoney - changes to Apinate dressings

6 July 2009  |  Admin

Changes have been made by Comvita to their manuka honey dressings available in the UK. Previously packaged under Comvita's own name as Apinate Dressings, they have now been re-branded under their ethical Medihoney brand, and will now be packaged as Medihoney Apinate Dressings.

They have also undergone a change in pack size. Whereas before it was a 3 pack size, they are now in a larger 5 dressings sized pack - each dressing still being 10cm x 10cm.

The packaging will still show that Medihoney is part of Comvita, but the main branding will be under the Medihoney label.

This is part of a worldwide move to align the specialist wound care products using manuka honey. Although there will be one exception in the UK with the ManukaCare18+ tube of sterilised manuka honey for wounds keeping its name due to its existing popularity and to maintain familiarity for existing users. 

In recognition of these changes The New Zealand Honey Shop has created a new main category for the Medihoney range. Should you have any questions over the changes please feel free to contact us.

Can eating the rainbow support healthy cognition?

In this blog, Clinical Neuroscientist Miguel Toribio-Mateas discusses the benefits of a diet full of colour for healthy cognition and different brain processes; from memory to reaction time.

Cognition refers to a range of processes relating to the acquisition, storage, manipulation, and retrieval of information by the human brain. It underpins nearly all of our daily activities, in health and disease, across the age span.

Cognition can be separated into multiple distinct functions, dependent on particular areas of the brain or “brain circuits” that work based on a number of natural chemicals known as neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are created by the body using building blocks that come from nutrients, hence the importance of being aware of what foods can act as sources of the necessary active components of the molecules that drive our brain processes.
