Top Ten Tips for Active Manuka Honey

The Healing Power of HBH Active Honey

HBH Active Manuka Honey has an antibacterial component that sets it apart from other honeys. The main medical use for active honey is  topically on a wound. It is generally used for treating wounds, infections and burns. HBH Active Manuka Honey is also marketed for use in many other conditions.

In laboratory studies the NPA (Non-Peroxide Activity) in Leptospermum honey has been found to be effective against a wide range of bacteria including the very resistant Helicobacter Pylori (this bacteria causes most stomach ulcers), the wound-infecting bacteria Staphylococcus Aureus and Escherichia Coli, Streptococcus Pyogenes (causing sore throats).

Be sure to check the MGO level before purchasing your Active Manuka Honey - the higher the MGO - the higher the antibacterial properties! Some brands will market a honey as 30+ but when you read closely it is only 30MGO, that's 30 parts per million. This is below medicinal grade.
