Raw honey can kill unwanted bacteria and fungus. It naturally contains hydrogen peroxide, an antiseptic. Several hospitals in Europe have used Manuka honey to fight methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), a type of staph bacterial infection that’s become resistant to antibiotics. The effectiveness of honey as an antibacterial or antifungal depends on the type of honey.
MANUKA HONEY is also used in medical settings to treat wounds because it’s an effective germ killer. Researchers believe this is because it has additional antibacterial properties besides the natural hydrogen peroxide.
Phytonutrients are compounds found in plants that help protect the plant from harm. For example, some may keep insects away or shield the plant from harsh UV radiation.
Phytonutrients provide both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits, which help you maintain good health. Because honey is made from plants, it also has phytonutrients. These valuable nutrients are unique to raw honey and disappear when honey is heavily processed.
Honey is sometimes used to treat digestive issues such as diarrhea, though there isn’t much research to show that it works. However, it’s proven to be effective as a treatment for Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori), a common cause of peptic ulcers. (Peptic ulcers occur in the stomach or digestive system.) Taking 1-2 teaspoons on an empty stomach is said to soothe pain and help with the healing process.
Have a cold? Try a spoonful of honey. Honey is an old sore throat remedy. Try adding it to hot tea with lemon. It also works as a cough suppressant.
Research shows that honey is as effective as dextromethorphan, a common over-the-counter cough medicine ingredient, in treating a cough.
MANUKA HONEY is predominantly from New Zealand and is known to have even more benefits than regular honey. Recently it was used to help treat those unfortunate animals injured with burns and dehydration from the Australian bushfires.
Comes from bees that pollinate Leptospermum scoparium, or the manuka bush, which grows predominantly in New Zealand and also in Australia. Other species of this bush grow all over the world, but do not produce the flowers bees need in order to produce Manuka Honey.
TWO VARIETIES AVAILABLE IN 3 SIZES
The origins of the word "Manuka" are Maori, the native language of New Zealand, and certain parties argue that only certified New Zealand Manuka Honey should actually bear the name. While the plant grows in both locations, it is apparently much more common in New Zealand, leaving the Australian market to work with limited resources as demand rises.
New Zealand Manuka Honey even has an advocacy group on its side: the UMF.
The Unique Manuka Factor Honey Association bestows a quality trademark upon Manuka Honey, and works with growers and producers to inform the public about the product’s benefits. The association maintains standards that brands bearing its trademark have to uphold to retain the label, and it hires independent companies to check samples of products. It is also leading the charge to trademark the name, and last year filed an application with the government to protect the product, according to Bloomberg.
John Rawcliffe, a spokesman for the UMF, believes the honey should have the same kind of regional protection as Champagne. He told Bloomberg by way of explanation, "I could take some corn and make some whiskey but I can't call it Scottish whisky."
Manuka Honey is made in both New Zealand and Australia, and comes from a flowering plant that is in the tea tree and myrtle families.

Studies show that Manuka honey can boost healing time and reduce infections in wounds. However, the honey used in hospital settings is medical grade, meaning it’s safe and sterile. You shouldn’t expect to treat injuries with the honey you buy from a grocery store.
