Manuka Honey For Wound Care

Is Manuka Honey good for healing wounds on the Skin?

The short answer is that IT IS GREAT for treating wounds on the skin. It is very effective when used in both gel and bandage form. Manuka Honey For Wound Care is something that everyone can do at home.

How does Manuka Honey For Wound Care work?

Methyglyoxal (MG) is the unique anti-bacterial compound term that gives Manuka honey its turbo charged healing abilities (also called MGO via a company trademark) and it’s very important for wound healing in particular.  It is suggested that this one compound (Methyglyoxal) could be responsible for up to 90-95% of the total Manuka Honey anti-bacterial activities (source: Prof. Henle, 2017).

The PH of Manuka honey is between 3.5 and 4.5.  That makes it “acidic” in nature.

Ways Manuka Honey can help with common household wounds include:

  • Common everyday surface wounds
  • Minor cuts and lacerations
  • Abrasions
  • Minor burns and scolds

Common wound pathogens (bacteria) that Manuka Honey can attack include:

  • aureus
  • aeruginosa
  • Coli
  • epidermidis
  • aureus – MRSA
  • faecalis
  • pyogenes
  • perfringens
  • albicans
  • niger

There are four products in the Manuka Health Wound Care range.

The wound Gel,

  • The wound dressings and
  • The Breast Pads,

 

All products are sterilized, and all products are made with New Zealand medical grade Manuka Honey.

The Wound Gel comes in a 30g presentation. Each tube has a flip top and all tubes are sealed so that you know the tubes haven’t been previously used.

Each tube of Wound Gel contains 94% Manuka Honey and 6% naturally derived gelling agents. The gelling agents allow the user to place the gel into the wound.

Each tube of wound gel has Methylglyoxal 250 medical grade Manuka Honey.

New speaker: Professor Thomas Henle   Technical University of Dresden.

Well Methylglyoxal is definitely the unique antibacterial compound of Manuka Honey. There maybe some other compounds which slightly enhance the antibacterial activity, but without Methlyglyoxal, definitely no activity. 90-95% of the total activity is definitely due to Methylglyoxal.

The Manuka Health Wound Gel can be used on all surfaces. Abrasions or grazes, minor cuts and lacerations and minor burns and scolds.

Once you have applied the Wound Gel to the wound, you will require a secondary dressing.  The ideal dressing is a Manuka Health Wound Dressing. Followed by tape or a bandage to secure the wound gel and dressing in place.

The Manuka Health family of products, the Wound Gel and the Wound Dressings are designed to be used together or separately. 

The Manuka Health Wound Dressings come in two popular sizes. 5 x 7 cm and 10 x 10 cm.

They come in standard medical packaging, which is easily opened and each dressing has three components.

1)  First component is a plastic liner which covers the specialized gel pad. We say that a customer required 25% more dressing than they have wound.

If they wish to cut the dressing, it’s best to cut it with the plastic liner on, because it provides stability to the gel dressing.

2)  Remove the plastic liner. The second component is the 3mm layer of specialized gel pad, which is 20% Manuka Honey. The Manuka Honey used in the dressing is Methylglyoxal 400 (MG 400).

3)  The third component of the dressing is the cotton breathable backing.  You can see how conformable the dressing is.

The Manuka Health wound dressings can be used on all surface wounds abrasions or grazes, minor cuts and lacerations and minor burns and scolds. 

This specialized honey hydrogel dressing denotes moisture to the wound.

Both the Wound Gel and dressings maintain a moist wound healing environment. Each dressing will absorb up to three times its weight in wound exudate and you will know when to change the dressing when the edges appear wet or saturated.

You will require a tape or bandage to keep the dressing in place.

  • If the wound is not exudating then the dressing can remain in place for 5-7 days.
  • If the wound is exudating then more frequent dressing changes will be required.

The ph of Manuka Honey is between 3.5 and 4.5 meaning it is acidic.  Wound pathogens including MRSA do not survive in an acidic environment.  Manuka Honey has a high glucose concentration Therefore assisting in drawing out inflammation from the wound, this enables wound healing to commence.

The high glucose content also has a rapid deodorizing effect by giving the wound healing cells an alternative food supply and preventing the cells from producing Sulphur and ammonia, which are responsible for the odour.

The Manuka Health Breast Pads come one pair per packet. They are circular and each pad comes on a plastic liner.  We encourage the Breastfeeding Mums to keep the packaging and the liners for use between feeds. Peel the pad off the plastic liner, but do not remove the breathable backing fabric.

This product is ideal for breastfeeding mothers suffering from nipple trauma. At the first sign of a crack or painful nipple, they should be applied.  Some mothers simply use the pads for the cooling and soothing effect that they provide.

Place the gel side of the pad against the nipple, the fabric backing will sit next to the bra, so friction doesn’t occur. The pad will absorb three times (x3) it’s own weight, however once the pads are saturated with breast milk, they will require changing.

Providing that the pads retain good integrity, they can be placed back onto the plastic liners and then into the fridge for an extra cooling effect. They can be reused for upto three (3) weeks.

Benefits Manuka Honey

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

Video Title: Healing Power of Honey on ‘The Doctors’

Video published by: The  Doctors                 Published Date: Jun 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.

Size: UMF 15+ which comes as 40 individually wrapped pieces in one box (184 g bag)

Price: Cheapest place to buy: Amazon        To check today’s price, please click here

I had a head cold at the time of reviewing this product, so for me, the timing was perfect. 


About the Kiwi Manuka – Manuka Honey and Propolis Lozenges -Strawberry&Elderflower Contains UMF 15+ Manuka Honey

These throat Lozenges (candies) from Kiwi Manuka containing UMF 15+ Manuka Honey have been designed to give you the amazing health benefits of Manuka Honey in a portable tablet / candy form that you can take anywhere with you.

They contain high grade UMF 15+ Manuka Honey from a reputable manufacturer and offer a quality product for people to enjoy.

For more information regarding “What is Manuka Honey?”, please click here.

They are a quality product which comes with not one, but three Trademarks so that you know you are purchasing from a company with a great reputation.

The trademarks are:

UMF Honey Association

Certified Manuka Originz, New Zealand 

New Zealand Made

Who are the Kiwi Manuka – Manuka Honey and Propolis Lozenges -Strawberry&Elderflower for?

Kiwi Manuka, New Zealand Manuka Honey Candies (throat lozenges) are really well suited for people who have a sore throat and want the health bursts that UMF 15+ Manuka Honey can give them. UMF 15+ is really one of the highest qualities of Manuka Honey you can buy off the shelf, higher ratings exists, such as 18+ or 20+ but they are super, super, super uncommon and very expensive.

Rather than travel around with a pocket loaded up with a jar full of gooey, sticky, raw honey and a spoon, now you can have a burst of high quality UMF 15+ Manuka Honey in your pocket, whenever you need it.

Each individual serving of the candies come individually wrapped in a sterile plastic wrap, so that your pocket will never have to be sticky every again!

Kiwi Manuka honey products are for people who care about the ethical harvesting of honey, as Kiwi Manuka really care about their bees and bee colony health.

Positives of this product:

  • Great strawberry taste.
  • All candies in the box come individually wrapped for ease of use and so they don’t stick inside your pockets.
  • Very portable. You don’t have to be at your home kitchen or in your work kitchen. These candies are not the free flowing sticky substance that raw Manuka Honey is.
  • The candies have a soft exterior and a hard interior. This is ideal for people who like to “chomp” a bit of the outside of the candy, yet the Manuka Honey is contained in the inside for the added benefits of slowly releasing into the body.
  • The product is suitable for most of the family (not suitable for children under 4 years of age)
  • This product is a gentle food grade health superfood. You can have upto six (6) candies per day.
  • Honey has an amazing shelf life. I couldn’t even find the expiry date on the box that I was given.

Negatives of the product:

  • The #1 negative is that some people have a serious Propolis allergy. If this is you or someone you love, then you need to know that this product contains 132mg for each candy. So, if you have a Propolis allergy, then this product is not for you.
  • This product is not for children under 4 years of age at all.
  • This product is recommended to be used in reduced quantities for children aged 4 – 8 years of age. The recommend dose for children is a maximum of three candies per day.
  • This product needs to be stored in a place where small children cannot reach it easily.
  • Pregnant or lactating women need to consult their health care provider before use.
  • I could not find a nutrition table regarding this product. People like to know these things. Sorry, I cannot be of more assistance in this regard.
  • The ingredients of these candies are: Sugar, Glucose Syrup (from corn), water, then UMF 15+ Manuka Honey 3.14g see photo’s for the others.
  • This product is listed as a “candy” and the top ingredients are: Sugar and Glucose Syrup (from Corn). Diabetics need to pause before consuming. However diabetics need to do this before consuming all candies anyway.

What to expect when you use this at home:

  • My first impression of tasting the product was really quite positive.  I can’t find a nutritional table for this product, so I thought it was nice that they were smallish candies.
  • The flavours were well balanced and tasted great.
  • Also the candie is soft on the outside and hard at the centre. The two different textures were nice.  It avoided any “same, same” feeling that you can get with some candies.
  • The after taste when I finished this candies was still pleasant and I could taste other foods really quickly.
  • It helped with my sore throat. I was glad I had them.

Amazon Customer Reviews:

Customer review #1

By Tim on 27 December 2015       5 stars         Happy Valley is one of the best

Don’t be fooled by all the Manuka Honey knock offs listed at cheaper prices. “Active” means nothing, its a marketing tactic. Make sure the honey is UMF verified at 15+ and above. I did a lot of research on this. Check for yourself by doing a few Manuka Honey UMF google searches or go to the official New Zealand Honey Association’s site umf.org.nz for more info. They also list all the Apiaries in the association at are UMF verified. Happy Valley is one of them. Another good honey sold on Amazon is from Mossops. Happy Valley and Mossops as have Facebook pages. The honey delicious and we have experienced it’s medicinal benefits.  Click here to read the review.

Customer review #2

By N_Kaur_Atl on March 1, 2016         5 stars

Relieved my 5 year old’s eczema and dry cough from allergies

The best thing on planet to relieve my daughter’s severely itchy eczema. I gave one teaspoon twice a day orally and also applied it to the itchy areas twice a day. It has worked like wonders. I am so glad I have found a non steroidal solution to relieve her itching. And we no longer have to give her the Children’s Zyrtec as well. It has helped improve her digestion and the throat irritation due to environmental allergies.”   Click here to read the full review 

Customer review #3

TapTrap12 on November 28, 2015   5 stars   Impressed with Manuka 15+

I was skeptical about this product but it’s praise all over the web & the reviews here on Amazon made me want to give it a try because I was getting a HSV-1 outbreak & had no free time to get to doctor. I used this topically on sore 3-4x/day as well as dissolved 1/2 to 1 tsp in my morning coffee & by the second day by body was responding positively. It cut what’s usually a week+ outbreak down to a few days & increased my energy during that time significantly (I have mild flu-like symptoms during an OB). I’ve also used it on dry, cracked skin & the cracks are gone in a couple days instead of a couple weeks with constant moisturizer application. I’m thoroughly impressed with this product & will keep it in my arsenal to help with cold/flu season, plus numerous other applications, too many to list.”

Final Thoughts on Manuka Honey UMF 15+:

I really like and admire companies who are prepared to stand behind their products so passionately.  Happy Valley have been in the beekeeping and honey business for over 40 years and their quality standards are very high.

I like that they are a member of the UMF Honey Association of New Zealand and that all their products are sourced from New Zealand.

I really like the independent laboratory testing which helps consumers know with confidence that they are buying a quality product.

I really like this product.

Customer Reviews:

By CodeMaster Talon, 6 December 2016

WHAT CAN YOU USE IT FOR?: All sorts of things. At my house we use it to clear up lingering infections, and there is research on its antibacterial properties. It does not appear to work on fungal issues. Virtually all people who work in Wellness and Health departments in natural grocery stores have a manuka story. Just exercise the same caution you would use when taking any product for the first time, and do your research if you want it for something specific. Comvita, though, is an excellent brand and the one I always use.”  Read the full review here:

By Mom’s with kids with molescum!     January 31, 2017

“I bought this because my daughter has molescum contagiosum on her legs with eczema on top. We’ve tried EVERYTHING. I MEAN EVERYTHING. I applied Comvita Manuka honey 15+ on her spots for a few days and most of them are gone. While it’s still too early to tell if it’s a permanent fix, this is definitely a win.” Click here to read the full review:

by Moss May 23, 2017  Love this, cant live without it

“I get chest pain from a peptic ulcer….the ONLY thing that keeps it from bothering me is manuka honey. I let my last jar run out and didn’t have any for over a year and then noticed the pains were starting back up and ordered this one. On the first time I took a teaspoon it stopped it dead in its tracks within 15 seconds. I am now back to taking it once to twice daily so it wont reoccur at all.”  Click here to read the full review:

By RunIt on June 3,          5 Stars and “Relief for a very tired mom

I had a little boy 15 months ago and had literally had MAYBE 7 nights of a good sleep during the entire 15 months because he suffered horribly from eczema and would wake up multiple times at night itching and upset. I have tried nearly everything (from plain coconut oil to (gasp) hydrocortisone for the itching at the recommendation of his pediatrician (I tried it once and couldn’t bring myself to put it on him again because I try REALLY hard to do things naturally). I eliminated things from his diet, I added bone broths and gut healing foods, and it improved slightly but his skin still looked awful with raised red patches from the neck down. My husband found this and ordered it and I did not expect anything different from the other 5 creams I have sitting on the dresser right now. I am FLOORED at the results of this cream. In less than 24 hours, the raised rash went away. There is still redness, but his skin is baby soft on his arms like it should be, not scaly. His legs and feet had the worst of it, but even they have significantly improved and it is completely gone from his toes. It has now been 3 days and he has slept through the night all three days. I was in tears the morning after the first night because I had not slept in MONTHS. I don’t know if it will work for someone else, but it is worth a shot. I will update if anything changes and will try and get photos of the improvements.  Click here to see the full review: Honeyskin Organics Aloe Vera + Manuka Honey Face and Body Cream for Rosacea, Eczema, Psoriasis, Rashes, Itchiness, Redness with raw Superfoods, 4 oz.

By Kim on December 9, 2016           5 stars and “Miracle cream! Works on my rosacea and more.

I’m a skeptic. I am wary of big promises from skin care products. I discovered long ago the products usually have their most profound impact on my wallet. A few months ago, at age 55, I developed rosacea. I have spent a fair amount of money and time looking for a solution. The product that worked best dried my skin and still left some redness. I took a chance on Honeyskin. Within three days all redness was gone and has never come back. I have been using for about a month now on my face, décolleté and arms. No special routine, just apply in morning and at night like I would any other moisturizer. Here’s where I go so far as to say Miracle Cream”. I suffer from allergies and have always struggled with puffiness under my eyes. Also, with age I’ve noticed my skin bruises and scratches more easily. Since I am an avid gardener and mother of backyard chickens, I have perpetual bruises and scratches on my arms – not pretty. Well, a couple of weeks ago I noticed the puffiness under my eyes looked better and has stayed that way. Then last week I realized I had almost no visible bruises or scratches on my arms. Obviously this cream is not preventing bruises and scratches, they just seem to be healing faster. I can eliminate rosacea and eye cream from my list, which makes this very affordable. Don’t know if you will have same results, but I’d say it’s worth a shot.  Click here to see the full review: Honeyskin Organics Aloe Vera + Manuka Honey Face and Body Cream for Rosacea, Eczema, Psoriasis, Rashes, Itchiness, Redness with raw Superfoods, 4 oz.

Final Thoughts:

I really like the fact that this is a family owned company who produces products in the USA. I like the fact that the owners have searched the world over looking for quality natural ingredients to put into their cream.  The list of ingredients is quite extensive.  Because this cream is a mix of Manuka Honey, coconut oil, MSM, Hempseed & Olive Oil, Shea Butter, cocoa butter, aloe vera, shea butter, blue-green algae, Plumeria and Cehami…. Woah, there must be something in this cream that can help EVERYONE.

I found the price perfectly reasonable compared to substitutes who use water, petroleum and alcohol fillers in their products.  I really like the fact that this product is NOT tested on animals.

I really like that there is a natural product to help out so many people with a wide variety of skin conditions and irritants.
