"Manuka" honey is like no other
Yesterday I mentioned I love "Manuka" honey, but why is it like no other?
Well . . . "Manuka" honey comes from the "Manuka" flower, a scarce and natural resource found only in New Zealand. It contains special health properties used to support digestion, immune system and healing.
'Manuka" honey isn't like traditional honey or local honey due to its "antibacterial" properties. "Methylglyoxal" is its active ingredient and is responsible for its antibacterial effects. "Manuka" honey also has antiviral, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits.
Some of the benefits of taking this honey are its ability to help correct IBS, gastric ulcers, periodontal disease, upper respiratory infections, healing wounds, diabetic ulcers, acid reflux, indigestion and gastritis.
So you now ask . . . how does this work?
Why is Manuka honey so good for you? And what makes it different?
Okay . . . so here's the deal . . .
There are 3 categories of honey
Honey that's been processed
And Characterized Honey
Now . . . all honey contains "hydrogen peroxide" which is what gives it its antibacterial properties. Did you know that?
But when honey is process (the stuff you find in most stores) - that's anything but local and characterized . . . it loses a lot of the potency of the "hydrogen peroxide". Therefore . . . you're just basically consuming sugar! Not good!
