This honey is amazing, it destroys every type of bacteria naturally, even super bugs!
If you’re any degree of a “health nut” you already know that honey is a great sweetener to add to your diet. Not just any honey, but raw unprocessed honey. In it’s purest form, raw, unheated, unpasteurized, and unprocessed, honey keeps all of its natural vitamins, enzymes and phytonutrients.
Even more powerful than the health of regular raw honey is Manuka honey. Manuka’s nutritional profile is what sets it apart from other honey’s.
Dr Axe reports,
Generally speaking, the typical raw unfiltered honey is a rich source of: (2)
- Amino acids
- B vitamins (B6, thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid)
Yet with Manuka honey, the nutritional content is up to 4 times that of normal flower honeys. This is what is called the Unique Manuka Factor.
The results of a study published in the European Journal of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases indicated that there may be a better way to fight bacteria and infections than antibiotics – especially considering that most superbugs are antibiotic resistant.
Dr. Dee Carter of the University of Sydney’s School of Molecular and Microbial Biosciences admits that current antibiotics become useless as bacteria evolved resistances to them. Therefore, antibiotics need to be updated frequently. This problem has caused pharmaceutical companies to abandon antibiotic production in favor of more profitable drug deals. Dr. Carter says that the compound methylglyoxal is the compound in the manuka honey that makes it so powerful against bacteria.
When you buy Manuka honey, you need to be sure to get the UMF certified honey to be sure that you’re getting the real, medicinal quality kind. You don’t want to be over paying for some regular table honey.
Internally, Manuka honey can help with many things like acid reflux, low stomach acid, tooth decay, gingivitis, IBS, IBD, sore throat, immunity, allergies, sinusitis, and promotes sleep. What makes Manuka really special is that it is a natural antibiotic, killing super bugs like MRSA. You can also apply it topically for acne, eczema, burns and ulcers.
This honey is definitely a super food. Just remember that you get what you pay for, so don’t try to cut corners with this food.
