Skin Benefits and Uses of Manuka Honey

Manuka honey benefits for skin

 

manuka-honeyManuka honey is a specialized, nutrient-dense honey made by bees collecting nectar from the Manuka plant, a bush that’s abundant but native only to New Zealand.

It is now considered worldwide to have numerous health benefits, including benefits to the skin thanks to high levels of Methylglyoxal (MG), a compound that occurs naturally in honey, but is much more abundant in New Zealand’s Manuka honey.

Because of it high levels of MG, Manuka honey helps support healthy inflammation management, making it an ideal addition to skin care products.

Not only can it help manage healthy inflammation and redness associated with acne and rosacea, it can also help support the skin’s ability to manage bacteria and dirt.

Manuka also helps boost skin regeneration, triggering faster cell turnover to reveal clear, even skin.

Manuka also hydrates skin effectively, not only by holding in moisture from other emollients, but also by drawing moisture from the air, resulting in a fresh, dewy complexion.

The New Zealand honey is also an excellent antioxidant, and fights free radicals that target collagen, so it helps reduce sallow, sagging skin.

Uses of Manuka honey

Medicinally, Manuka honey is used to help treat minor wounds and burns because of its antibacterial properties.

Nutritionally, Manuka honey is an immune system-boosting powerhouse, packed with four times the nutrients of traditional honey, including amino acids, B vitamins, copper, calcium, iron, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and zinc.

That makes Manuka honey an excellent post-workout snack to restore lost nutrients including sodium lost through sweat.

It also has been used to help support healthy cholesterol levels, manage acid reflux and other digestive disorders and boost energy.

Source and sustainability of Manuka honey

From the native forests of New Zealand, the bees drawn to the Manuka bush produce a honey that is rich in antibiotic properties that make the specialized honey one of the healthiest ingredients in the world.

While natives used the honey for centuries, Manuka honey garnered worldwide attention when Professor Peter Molan of the University of Waikato studied the honey in-depth to determine the many benefits the liquid gold’s antibacterial properties offered.

While Manuka honey is highly sought after – and many imposters have attempted to infiltrate the market – the honey is processed free from chemicals and is farmed using award-winning sustainable practices.
