Manuka Honey is effectual, and its healing properties are well documented. Honey can decrease healing time via a dual effect on the inflammatory response. Several studies have investigated the anti-inflammatory properties of Manuka honey, and demonstrated the effectiveness of Manuka honey in reducing the inflammatory response associated with healing, independent of its known topical effect.
Manuka honey is one of the most useful and therapeutic forms of honey in the world. Manuka uses range from healing sore throats and digestive ills to curing infections. Long used for severe burns, because of its rich anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, Manuka honey has been shown to promote rapid, improved healing.
Inflammation is an essential part of the body's healing and what starts off the repair processes to replace damaged tissues. Anti-inflammatory drugs are widely used, but can slow the healing process. Active Manuka Honey has a potent anti-inflammatory characteristic and will not slow healing.
