The Benefits Manuka Honey
People have often asked me, so what exactly are the benefits of Manuka Honey? If sounds amazing, but what does it do that is so special when compared with regular supermarket honey?
The benefits Manuka Honey are that it has so many amazing antibacterial and immune boosting properties. And as an added bonus, because it’s sweeter than normal sugar, you only use half as much – so it’s great for weight loss too.
So here is a short 2 minute video which will help to answer this question. The author is “The Doctors” and it first went to air, on June 24, 2010

It’s healing and it tastes good too.
I am just enjoying my honey. (laughs)
You know, it’s interesting because honey in moderation, it’s actually not bad for us. Antioxidants, cough suppressant, I put it in my coffee every morning.
It’s twice as sweet as sugar so you can use half as much.
So you know the Egyptians, maybe they got it right. (Yeah!)
And we know that it keeps, after they found the Egyptian tombs and all that. They used it medicinally. it’s having a little bit of rebirth.
Now the caveat is that I wouldn’t try this on sever burns, or diabetic ulcers or bed sores or things like that. But for minor abrasions, minor burns, minor cuts, there maybe something too this for a couple of reasons.
Number 1) it’s acidic, so it’s naturally going to kill bacteria. It actually creates a moist environment so that healing with take place quicker and
2) in the form of these exclusal wound dressings, it’s actually been shown that you may have better healing, better scaring (removal) with these products.
So it has anti-bacterial properties.
You know, some diabetic patients have tried this and said that “it’s been extremely beneficial for their ulcers”.
They are some of the toughest ones that there are – diabetic ulcers and for some of them, maybe give it a shot. For some of the other things haven’t worked, you heard some testimonials there that say “it’s worth a shot”.
Question: Should you only use this special honey from New Zealand or can you use any honey?
Well the special honey from New Zealand has the MOST antibacterial properties and it’s the most beneficial, which is why it’s packaged that way.
“It’s all mine” Doctor grabs it all for himself.

Comment: Laughing, He’s not sharing.
It’s actually worth trying. We have actually done a “home health” remedy, where honey mixed with olive oil can help with some skin irritations.
And as we saw on the tap, it can even help sometimes with medicine resistance Staph. Aureus.
I know, what has clinched it for me, is that it makes my coffee in the morning taste better. And tea. It smells good.
