What is special about Manuka honey?
Some types of honey, including Manuka honey, have components with antibacterial qualities. The major antibacterial component in Manuka honey is methylglyoxal (MG).
MG is a compound found in most types of honey, but usually only in small quantities.
MG gives Manuka honey its antibacterial power. The higher the concentration of MG, the stronger the antibacterial effect.
Several studies suggest Manuka honey is effective when used on top of wounds and leg ulcers. Studies also show it's effective in fighting infection and promoting healing.
