There are many sorts of honey in the world. Although the commonest one is the raw honey, in Australia was discovered a new type of organic honey, called Manuka.
It is produced thanks to the bees that consume the Leptospermum Scoparium nectar from the New Zealand’s Manuka tree and bush, which is a typical plant for these regions. It acts as a powerful destroyer and antibiotic which eliminates the dangerous bacteria.
Manuka honey fights superbugs
According to the Dr. Carter from the Sydney’s University of Microbial and Molecular Biosciences, bacteria resist to the antibiotics due to shortness of their effect. Thus, the antibiotics become completely useless.
In his report published in the European Journal of Infectious Diseases and Clinical Microbiology, he stated that Manuka honey is capable of elimination of bacteria that are more familiar to people these days. He adds that Manuka honey contains certain compounds such as methylglyoxal, which kill bacteria and improve the immune system.
