Honey is good – we all know that. But do you know how good? Or, rather, do you know which type of honey is the best? How about I tell you about a type of honey that can kill deadly bacteria more effectively than pharmaceutical antibiotics.
What is this Manuka Honey?
Manuka honey is one of New Zealand’s best products and it’s made by bees that pollinate the native manuka bush.
This honey can relieve pain, speed the healing process, and fight infection - and it was traditionally used to heal burns and infected wounds – reminds you of something? That’s right – antibiotics.
This type of honey is also really effective against antibiotic-resistancy, as well as antibiotic susceptible bacteria.
What Can Manuka Honey Do With Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria
In the case with MRSA, for example, Manuka honey has an even more powerful antibacterial activity than regular pharmaceutical drugs.
What you need to remember is that this honey has one of the most powerful antibiotic effects on diseases and whenever it encounters antibiotic-resistant bacteria, it fights it like no pharmaceutical drug ever will.
And remember this now – because once the word spreads, they will make a drug out of it and they will try to sell you the benefits from the drug – and not the actual natural source.
Where Can I Find Real Manuka Honey
Not in your local supermarket, unfortunately. This type of honey is usually sold in health food stores and online. It is expensive, I’m not gonna lie - its starting price is around 30-40 USD per jar. If you wanna go organic, expect to pay even more. And also, there’s need for caution.
Unfortunately, the manuka industry is full of frauds because of the increasing demand worldwide. True Manuka honey can only be produced in New Zealand, so don’t trust anyone who says otherwise.
Annually, there are around 1,700 tons of Manuka produced in New Zealand. You’ll know that Manuka honey is absolutely 100% pure if it has a minimum rating of 10 UMF (unique manuka factor). This term is regulated by the Unique Manuka Factor Honey Association. Fake manuka honey typically does not show the UMF level and is not produced in New Zealand.
