8 Surprising Benefits Of Manuka Honey For Your Health
Due to its major medicinal qualities, Manuka is a staple in the natural health world. This is because a growing pool of science is beginning to back up thousands of years of folk medicinal uses.
1. Allergies and Sinusitis:
While the Internet is filled with several personal accounts of Manuka honey benefits for allergy relief, there is virtually no research to back up those claims.
In fact, I was only able to find one single-blind study that looked at Manuka honey’s role in allergic fungal rhinosinusitis.
There’s a superbug that has plagued hospitals for several years now. You may have heard of it. It’s called methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA. Basically, our overuse of antibiotics has lead to strains of Staph becoming stronger and stronger and virtually incurable using standard hospital practices. In fact, these infections spread so quickly that the majority of people impacted are required to undergo highly invasive procedures, such as intravenous tubing, artificial joints, and surgeries to save their lives.
3. Acne and Eczema:
Skin irritations, such as acne and eczema, have been successfully treated with Manuka honey, according to testimonials from patients. However, there is no clinical research to support these claims. But it’s still worth a shot.
When you consider that Manuka honey is proven to be an effective antimicrobial, it just follows suit to assume that it can be effective in treating skin issues. These testimonials show that applying honey topically to the impact areas of the skin for several minutes and then washing with soap and water is the best method.
4. Burns, Ulcers, and Wounds:
“The use of honey leads to improved wound healing in acute cases, pain relief in burn patients and decreased inflammatory response in such patients,” according to a study published in the Jundishapur Journal of Natural Pharmaceutical Products.In addition, Manuka honey’s anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antibacterial properties can prevent infections in people with ulcers. Manuka honey is also effective at dressing wounds and promoting fast, improved healing.
5. Manuka honey is an excellent nutritional supplement:
Honey is naturally rich in fructose and many other reducing sugars, amino acids, enzymes and B-complex vitamins, particularly thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid. Amino acids in honey are mainly proline, tyrosine, lysine, and phenylalanine with valine, arginine, histidine and glutamic acid in lesser amounts. The nutritional value of honey is partially dependent on its mineral content which includes calcium, phosphorus, iron, zinc, copper, sodium, potassium, magnesium, and manganese in various amounts.
6. Manuka honey relieves gastritis:
Gastritis, or the inflammation of the stomach lining, can be caused by bacterial infections, bile reflux, the use of aspirin and similar non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and excessive alcohol intake. Gastritis causes stomach pain and discomfort, bloating, vomiting, indigestion and heartburn. Left untreated, it can result in severe blood loss, and in some cases, stomach cancer.
7. Boosts immunity:
People who have used manuka honey regularly for its health benefits often report increased resistance to diseases. The high nutritional value of the honey, especially the presence of a wide range of vitamins and minerals could be responsible, but it is mainly attributed to the immune-boosting capacity of manuka honey. Lab tests have shown that it contains certain substances that can stimulate cytokine production.
8. Common Cold and Flu:
Taking manuka honey during the flu season may protect you against catching the bug. Colds and flu are highly contagious infections caused by viruses. They are seasonal ailments since the microbes proliferate only when atmospheric conditions are just right.
Taking a teaspoon of manuka honey 2-3 times a day may help you tide over the cold and flu season without incident, thanks to its immune-boosting action. In the event of you getting a cold, a honey drink can ease the symptoms.
