Honey collected from the manuka bush, which grows throughout New Zealand, has a reputation as a great cure for various ailments and infectious conditions.
For centuries the beneficial properties of honey has been used by healers due to its anti bacterial properties. However, manuka honey is supposed to be extra special.
In fact, recent research has discovered that the manuka has three times the amount of active anti bacterial agents compared to any other honey. It can not only protect the skin and heal it, but also it has strong replenishing strengths as well.
It is seen as new best natural product on the market and it is fairly cheap as it is easily available. Manuka honey combats bacteria not only the very common type but also difficult strains for example the methicillin resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) currently devastating hospitals worldwide.
