Antibacterial Properties of Manuka Honey

Manuka honey contains a unique concentration of antioxidant phenols and antibacterial compounds that inhibit bacterial growth and promote healing. Unlike many synthetic antibiotics, manuka honey does not promote the growth of antibiotic-resistant super bugs and can help destroy difficult-to-treat infections like MRSA. This makes manuka honey unique and highly effective in the treatment of wounds and in preventing infection. Here are the unique antibacterial properties of manuka honey that make it such a powerful tool in the medicine cabinet:
Studies
Dozens of studies have been reported attesting to the antibacterial power of manuka honey. Lab studies show how the honey inhibits the growth of over 80 strains of bacteria, including the antibiotic-resistant MRSA by interfering with its environment, breaking down the proteins it needs to survive and inhibiting bacterial cell division.
