Ever thought of putting Mānuka Honey in your First Aid Kit? Well, it can be much more beneficial than you probably ever imagined! But don’t just take our word for it… Our customers and science have presented the many reasons why you should trust our Mānuka Honey.
Mānuka Honey has various advantages, and can be great for problems such as:
Unlike many other honeys, Mānuka does not need oxygen to work effectively on wounds (see What’s special about Manuka Honey). This means that the antibacterial properties work in all situations, including underneath medical dressings and internal problems. Thus, you can apply the Mānuka Honey to the wound, and then wrap it up in dressings if needed. This makes Mānuka Honey the perfect solution for those active family members!
Various research has shown that the antibacterial properties of Mānuka Honey isn’t just an old folk tale. If you’re looking for a natural remedy that works, then UMF Mānuka Honey can upgrade your First Aid Kit.
You’ve most likely seen that many jars of Mānuka Honey, such as Happy Valley's, have what’s called a UMF® rating. This rating is based upon the characteristics of Mānuka Honey, including leptosperin and methylglyoxal levels (abbreviated as MGO). UMF® ratings show that a Mānuka Honey is of high quality and contain the beneficial properties mentioned above.
MGO is one of the components that is responsible for Mānuka Honey’s antibacterial activity. Mānuka Honey’s with suitable levels of MGO, and in turn a good UMF® rating, can assist in preventing wound infections (see Comparative Antibacterial and Antibiofilm Activities of Manuka Honey and Egyptian Clover Honey).
