New Revelations Of Manuka Honey Exhibit Amazing Results
Manuka honey has been around for several centuries however it recently received a boost with the revelations of researchers at the Waikato University. The research exhibits the fact that a compound present in the manuka bushes is responsible for the antibacterial properties that active manuka honey is known for. For some time though the unique antibacterial property of manuka honey was associated with the presence of methylglyoxal, however its origin was still quite unknown.
Manuka honey originates in New Zealand and parts of Australia which is the only region all over the world that produces such a powerful honey. However, it is well known among the beekeepers that the efficiency of MGO increases with storage but there is no proper research that proves this theory.
New findings depict that it prevented dermatitis in breast cancer patients. It also depicted that there would be a decrease in the duration of dermatitis episodes. This was claimed after a research with randomized 81 patients with an application of manuka honey subjected to a range of radiation schedules. These treatments were applied twice daily which presented amazing benefits.
The idea that manuka cream has antimicrobial properties is not. In fact, it was an invincible part of traditional medicinal therapies. It also has excellent super bug fighting capabilities.
Working in the honey research unit at the University of Waikato, professor Molan said, “In all honeys, there is - to different levels - hydrogen peroxide produced from an enzyme that bees add to the nectar. In manuka honey, and its close relative which grows in Australia called jellybush, there's something else besides the hydrogen peroxide. It works on bacteria, fungi, protozoa. We haven't found anything it doesn't work on among infectious organisms. And there's nothing like that ever been found anywhere else in the world."
