The antibacterial activity of Manuka Honey is tested and rated according to strength, with variance from 5+ to 40+.

There has been a recent resurgence in the popularity of Manuka Honey, mostly as due to greater demand for natural, organic health products.  In response, Manuka Honey is making an appearance in many supermarket brands and products, however, for optimum health benefits, it is best to consume pure Manuka Honey.

In its pure form, Manuka Honey is a powerhouse for fighting infections, healing and repairin. It was used by conventional medical practitioners up until the 1940s and 50s, when it was replaced by the introduction of antibiotics and other synthetic treatments.

The antibacterial and antimicrobial properties in pure Manuka Honey benefit by helping to heal cuts, wounds and abrasions, and even fungal conditions such as athlete’s foot and ringworm. Manuka Honey has been used for the treatment of skin conditions such as exzema, psoriasis, dermatitis and dry skin and is said to assist in re-building damaged skin.
