All of the Manuka Sport products contain Manuka honey from New Zealand, which is known worldwide for its health benefits.
Many people are unfamiliar with the wonderful health benefits of Manuka honey, but even fewer are aware that most commercial honey offers minimal benefits. It’s important to remember that not all honey is created equal. The following highlights the primary health benefits of Manuka honey:
1. Reduces Inflammation
Manuka honey is so good at reducing inflammation that the National Cancer Institute has approved a proposal for using Manuka honey to reduce inflammation of the esophagus following chemotherapy. This is not a matter of opinion, but the result of clinical testing. The popularity of Manuka honey is largely due to two things—it works extremely well and also tastes great. Additionally, Manuka honey has healing benefits that can help an infected wound properly heal—from burn wounds, bacterial infections to pressure ulcers.
2. Natural Antibiotic and Antibacterial
Levels of methylglyoxal in Manuka honey make it a powerful antibacterial agent and antibiotic. There are minimal amounts of MG in common honey yet the nectar of Manuka flowers contains the highest concentration.
Multiple studies have shown that Manuka honey is a very powerful antibacterial agent. It displays significant power to inhibit the growth of bacterial microbes. It also has great potential as a topical antimicrobial agent in cases involving antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
3. Improves Gastrointestinal Health
It’s true—Manuka honey can help improve digestion and gut health. Studies show that honey can reduce gastrointestinal pathogens. While more research needs to be done in this area, we have seen clinical evidence that honey can impove the microflora of the gut. The same study suggested that by replacing the sugar in processed food with honey, researchers could inhibit the genotoxic and harmful effects of mycotoxins. In essence, this makes honey an all-natural probiotic.
4. Improves Problems of Low Stomach Acid, Acid Reflux, and SIBO
Clostridium refers to a kind of bacteria found all over in nature, particularly in the soil. Clostridium difficile is related to the stomach acid, acid reflux, and SIBO, and such infections can cause diarrhea, nausea, and abdominal pain. Fortunately for the gut, Clostridium difficile is no match for Manuka honey, which can help eliminate the bacteria and help maintain a balanced, healthy digestive system.
How can raw Manuka Honey be used?
Manuka honey is the best honey that’s available in the market because it serves as an all-natural carbohydrate source, all-natural probiotic source and all-natural sweetener.
