Although there are many varieties of honey, only a few such as Manuka honey have been studied in detail for its medicinal properties. Some of its benefits include:
Increases the rate of healing: Honey has a long history of use as a wound healer -- as far back as 2000 BC! Manuka honey has been used to treat burns, infected and non-healing wounds, ulcers and in dressing acute and chronic wounds.2 The acidity of the honey can provide oxygen to regenerating tissue and has a stimulatory action on growth of cells.1,2
Moisturizing: Manuka honey provides moist wound healing as well as a protective barrier for damaged skin.4
Antibacterial: Manuka honey has potent antibacterial activity when applied to wounds and broken skin. Clinical studies show it is effective against a wide variety of bacteria including antibiotic-resistant strains.1,2,3
Anti-inflammatory: Clinically there have been several observations reported of honey reducing edema, minimizing scarring and having a soothing effect when applied to inflamed wounds and burns.1
Irradiated: The honey available at the grocery store is often not sterilized and is not safe for consumption for babies under 1 year old due to the risk of botulism. Our Manuka Honey has been sterilized by gamma irradiation, ensuring the removal of Clostridium botulinum spores. This irradiation does not have a detrimental impact on the antibacterial activity of honey.4
