Most of us are aware of the many health benefits that raw, unprocessed honey can have, however, according to recent scientific discoveries, there is a type of honey which is capable of killing every kind of bacteria, even the worst type.
The results of the scientific study were published by the European Journal of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases, and it indicated that this type of honey can play a huge role in treating certain bacteria, especially when that type of bacteria is resistant to antibiotics.
Of course, by now you might have guessed that we are talking about manuka honey. It is also known as jelly bush honey, and it is produced in New Zealand.
Reports by ‘The Australian’ have shown that the manuka honey is capable of killing every pathogen or bacteria tested on the studies mentioned before, and if you want to treat skin infections, insect bites, cuts and wounds, apply it topically or take it internally.
One of the best things about this type of honey is that none of the killed superbugs built up immunity, which is one of the main problems with today’s antibiotics.
Dr. Dee Carter, from the University of Sydney’s School of Molecular and Microbial Biosciences has stated that the shelf lives of today’s antibiotics are far shorter, because the bacteria which they attack quickly become resistant to the antibiotics.
Where to Find Manuka Honey
Manuka honey can be found in almost all health stores, but if you don’t know a health store around, you can always order it off the internet. However, you must make sure that you are buying an UMF certified manuka honey, as otherwise you might be sold fake honey. The ‘UMF’ label stands for “Unique Manuka Factor” which refers to a phytochemical property obtained from the manuka bushes. The best manuka honey is currently sold on Amazon.com.
Manuka is one of the healthiest ingredients for both recipes and healthy consumption. If you have any type of skin, digestive or other health condition, apply and consume manuka honey on regular basis, and we assure you, the results are going to leave you speechless.
