Mysterious Honey Discovered That Kills All Bacteria Scientists Throw at It

We all know that raw, unprocessed honey is extremely beneficial for our health, however, Australian scientists have recently made a shocking discovery.

Apparently, one specific type of honey can destroy almost everything scientists throw at it, like some of the most dangerous bacteria known to them.

The June 2009 edition of the Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases journal has published the findings of the scientists which are very significant in the time when most of the top antibiotics in the world are failing, particularly those against resistant superbugs.

This specific type of honey produced in New Zealand is called manuka honey.

There were shortages and fake products of honey in the past couple of years as a result of its increased popularity.

Therefore, the New Zealand producers of manuka honey wanted trademark protection, such as Scottish whiskey or French champagne.

Now that we know about the amazing health benefits of manuka honey, we can understand why they wanted this.

Manuka Honey Destroys Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus and Other Superbugs

This type of honey is produced by bees obtaining it from the Leptospermum Scoparium nectar, tea trees native only to New Zealand and Australia, and the manuka bush in New Zealand.

The Australian reported that their researchers discovered that manuka honey successfully destroyed every pathogen and bacteria it was tested on. It can be topically applied to help in the fight against cuts and insect bites, skin infections, or it can be ingested.

The biggest difference with this type of honey was that not a single superbug destroyed by the honey had the ability to build up the immune system, which is a common issue with antibiotics nowadays.

Dr. Dee Carter from the School of Molecular and Microbial Biosciences- the University of Sidney, reported that modern antibiotics usually have short shelf lives since the bacteria they strike become resistant very quickly. The difficulty of recovering costs has led many big pharmaceutical companies to abandon the production of antibiotics.

Therefore, he continues to say that creating effective alternatives can save plenty of lives.

As Dr. Carter states, manuka honey includes the methylglyoxal compound which together with other unfamiliar compounds leads to “multi-system failure” that kills the bacteria.

Where to Find Manuka Honey?

Although there were fake scams and fluctuated supply levels, manuka honey is still Real Farmacy as well as in health food stores. The best thing to look at when buying manuka honey is one with UMF certification.

Honey certified with UMF, or Unique Manuka Factor contains phytochemical properties obtained from the manuka bushes responsible for its unique characteristics. The New Zealand’s Unique Manuka Factor Honey Association regulates this term, and you can find many manuka-certified products on Amazon.

One Amazon customer under the name of JoshuaOne9 managed to get rid of methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus with the UMF certified brand Real Farmacy.

The amazon customer said that once he noticed the red bump, he thought it’s a mosquito bite, so he scratched it. However, since he was already familiar with MRSA, as he had a friend who was dealing with it, he immediately knew what that was.

The person started applying manuka honey on the affected area of the skin and then he used a band-aid to cover the place. After a few hours, the person felt relief, and after several days, the MRSA was completely gone.

Although more research should be done, we can say that this specific type of honey from New Zealand looks really promising in defeating one of today’s biggest health challenges, which is why this Australian research shouldn’t be overlooked.
