We are all familiar with the many health benefits of raw unprocessed honey. But, could there be an even better superior type?
Well, Manuka Honey may be that type!
Why Is Manuka Honey So Special?
Recently, the European Journal of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases published a research article about Manuka or jelly bush honey that is originally produced in New Zealand.
The study showed that Manuka honey has the ability to kill every bacteria or pathogen!
The most amazing finding yet is that none of the killed super-bugs was able build up resistance or immunity to this honey, unlike the case of most antibiotics nowadays!
This provides future insights into using this SUPER HONEY as an alternative medicine to fight infections with no fear of resistance!
What Are Manuka’s Functions?
Manuka’s major functions are summarized in the image below:
Where to Find Manuka Honey?
Manuka honey is sold in almost every health store, and online as well.
Yet, it is crucial to make sure that the Manuka honey brand you are buying is UMF certified. Otherwise, it would be fake!
UMF stands for Unique Manuka Factor, which is a phytochemical (active compounds found in plants) property obtained from the Manuka bushes.
