Healing with Honey
What are the benefits of Manuka honey? The last time we checked, there were 75 scientific studies revealing a wide array of benefits. It has been shown to have great antimicrobial effects when applied directly to wounds to speed healing, and in some cases was shown to be a good alternative to antibiotic-resistant infections such as MRSA. One study proposed the antimicrobial activity was partially due to the fact that honey lowers the pH of the tissue, making it impossible for bacteria to survive. It is used in some hospitals as wound dressing and has been particularly useful for treating ulcerated skin, with no known side effects.
Internally, Manuka honey acts as a prebiotic and helps promote the growth and activity of bifidobacteria in the intestine. It has been shown to alleviate dyspepsia and other chronic intestinal issues. It has natural antioxidant qualities and can be used in beauty treatments such as facials and hair conditioner.
