Made by bees that pollinate the native manuka bush in New Zealand. Before the development of antibiotics in the 1940s, honey was a staple in both medication cabinet and the kitchen, and it had been utilized to treat everything from a cold to a bee sting. Clinical studies also demonstrate that manuka honey is an all-natural wound healer, treating wounds faster with less pain and less skin scarring.
Manuka honey destroys bacteria by drawing water from the bacteria, impeding cell development. Its high glucose content nourishes damaged tissue and facilitates high-speed tissue regeneration. Due to its high antibacterial potency, manuka honey has been successful in treating wounds infected by methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA. It could be applied directly into a wound and is this kind of effective wound healer that wound dressings, with manuka honey as the active ingredient, are now available over the counter.
