While the natural healing properties of regular honey have been appreciated across the globe, the antibacterial levels present in high MGO honey make the medicinal health benefits of Manuka honey far more potent.
Manuka Honey is fast acquiring a formidable reputation as a remedy for the treatment of wounds, abrasions, cuts, and scars.
The MGO in this medicinal honey plays the role of healer-warrior fighting against germs and limiting their presence on the wound surface or in facial cold sores.
Manuka Honey Benefits for Wounds
Some doctors have begun using it in clinical settings as it has proved to be effective in treating simple and painful wounds in controlled tests.
Bandages soaked in raw and highly potent manuka are applied on wounds, in particular wounds and cuts that result from infections and injuries. The U. S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently approved these infused bandages for prescription and over-the-counter sales.
The powerful antimicrobial compounds – methylglyoxal and hydrogen peroxide – work on the wound in a dual treatment mode. It disinfects the wounds and draws away moisture. In doing so, it prevents existing bacteria from thriving and new bacteria from reinfecting your cut or sore.
In addition to this, the low pH levels of honey and the presence of sugars (glucose and fructose) hamper the spread of bacteria in your skin. This gives your wound time to heal and new tissue to form over the dead cells.
Astoundingly, strong MGO activity in manuka encourages healing at a much faster rate than expected from a natural remedy. The purity and potency of the honey you use will have a bearing on the restorative process.
Severe cuts, scarring, and skin conditions would require the presence of higher levels of MGO in manuka for the treatment to be effective.
For this reason, we recommend medicinal and superior-grade Manuka honey for reduced symptoms and distinct signs of healing. Our Manuka Honey MGO 1717+ gently sanitizes the wound, soothes the pain and inflammation, and promotes rapid healing.
Manuka Honey Benefits for Healing Scars
For medicinal use and to treat ordinary wounds and scarring, Manuka Honey should possess minimum activity. Some varieties are stronger than others in terms of MGO content and antibacterial activity.
The antioxidants in Manuka have an important role to play in reducing the intensity of age and stress-related spots. Regular application of manuka on surgery scars can help diminish the mark and allow it to fade off.
Looking to get rid of those blemishes on your face? Add our Biosota Manuka Honey MGO 1200+ to your medicine box as it makes a perfect natural topical antiseptic and cleanser.
