Welcome to Manuka Honey...
Aristotle (384-322 BC) said, "It’s good as a salve for sore eyes and wounds"... Honey has an enviable reputation that has stood the test of time.
While all honey can be beneficial, manuka honey’s anti-bacterial and antiseptic properties are believed to be more than 100 times stronger than what you’ll find in normal table honey.
Manuka Honey is a form of monofloral honey.
It’s created by honey bees that gather nectar from the flowers of the manuka bush (Leptospermum Scoparium).
The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of manuka honey are remarkable.
Antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria or superbugs have been causing alarm in recent decades, however, manuka honey is now being used in hospitals where penicillin and other antibiotic drugs are failing.
Manuka honey is able to defeat MRSA, staph infections, dermatitis and a wide array of other infections.
Professor Peter C Molan (MBE) BSc (Hons) Wales. PhD Liv. Of the University of Waikato in New Zealand, "It works on bacteria, fungi, protozoa. We haven't found anything it doesn't work on among infectious organisms."
It’s also great for wounds and burns.
Manuka Honey has been known to be effective in treating:
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Skin ulcers, boils & wounds
- Ulcers, ulcerative colitis, heartburn and various other related conditions.
No wonder it’s being called nature’s cure all.
