Proven health benefits of Manuka Honey

Winter is coming… Health benefits of Manuka Honey

Winter is coming!

Honey has long been a soothing remedy for the effects of coughs, colds, and flus. We have mentioned the benefits of 100% pure, raw honey before, however, Manuka Honey has its own benefits. As we approach winter, it’s a perfect time to investigate the health benefits of Manuka Honey. Consider adding Manuka Honey to your daily honey regime. 

Manuka Honey is produced by bees foraging manuka plants. These plants are found across Australia, and Australian Manuka Honey is proven to have many health benefits. The industry’s peak body, the Australian Manuka Honey Association, describes some of the benefits of Manuka Honey, noting studies have uncovered:

that bacteria with resistance to modern antibiotics (becoming superbugs) cannot develop resistance to the activity of Manuka honey (Blair et al. 2009). Manuka effectively inhibits problematic bacterial pathogens unlike any other known antimicrobial, with attempts to generate honey-resistant bacterial strains in a laboratory unsuccessful”. 

So what does this mean for us?
