'Honey has been used as a natural wound healer and infection fighter since ancient times, and new research is showing that a specific type of honey from New Zealand — Manuka honey — may offer a wealth of additional healing benefits.
Manuka honey is made by bees that feed off the flowers of the Manuka bush, a medicinal plant native to New Zealand.
All honey contains varying degrees of hydrogen peroxide, which is formed when worker bees secrete an enzyme (glucose oxidase) into the nectar.
Manuka honey, however, has healing properties that extend beyond the healing effects attributed to its hydrogen peroxide content alone; properties such as improved dental health.'
