Active Manuka Honey is made by honey bees who feed on the Manuka bush, which is a extraordinary plant itself. The Kakariki parakeets use this plant to rid themselves of parasites by chewing the leaves and bark and applying the sap to their feathers. The Maori people have also known about the special traits of this tree for centuries. They have been using parts of this plant as an effective folk medicine for centuries.
Honey was used to treat infected wounds as long ago as 2000 years before bacteria were discovered to be the cause of infection. The invention of antibiotics in the 20th century resulted in a setback in the use of honey as a medicine. Before that time, health-boosting honey was used by almost all cultures in history. But now, once again, the medicinal use of this natural product - Active Manuka Honey - is growing not only among consumers but also among medical health professionals – even though many medical professionals have the tendency to adhere to the opinion that only pharmaceutical products are useful.
Several clinical trials have proven Manuka honey’s efficacy and others are being conducted at the moment. Some of the most comprehensive Active Manuka Honey research has been done at New Zealand’s Waikato University.
Manuka Honey and Active Manuka Honey have been researched for over 20 years by Dr. Peter Molan, Senior Lecturer at the Waikato University in New Zealand. The Waikato Honey Research Unit led by professor Peter Molan has done ground-breaking research on the medical benefits of Manuka honey. Dr. Molan has discovered that this honey has unique medicinal properties that cannot be found in any other honey or food.
According to professor Molan’s research, Active Manuka Honey has a broad spectrum of action and it works on bacteria, fungi, and protozoa. In fact, they have not found any infectious organisms on which it does not work.
Dr. Molan has found that Manuka Honey seems to naturally destroy staph and strep. Active Manuka Honey seems to naturally destroy staphaureus, streptococcus (even antibiotic resistant MRSA, Golden Staph), as well as h. pylori (helicobacter pylori), the bacteria typically associated with stomach ulcers.
Manuka honey has shown to effectively treat the MRSA bug where antibiotics fail. It is also used to treat wounds, ulcers and burns where it quickly regenerates skin resulting in a decreased chance on infections and less scarring.
Apart from this it is used to relieve digestive complaints such as acid reflux, gastritis, heartburn and indigestion. Its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties help reduce the pain of these stomach complaints. Professor Molan suggests taking a teaspoon of Manuka honey with a small amount of toast three times a day to relieve digestive issues.
Some people have noticed improvements on psoriasis or other forms of eczema thanks to the use of Manuka honey. The osmotic effects created by the honey hydrate the affected area - alleviating inflammation. Manuka Honey’s acidic and antibacterial characteristics have shown to reduce acne by killing bacteria aggravating pores that lead to acne.
UMF Active Manuka Honey is a low cost alternative to other medications, has no known side-effects, and is suitable for vegetarians.
