麥盧卡蜂蜜的健康益處

Wound healing

Honey has been used since ancient times to treat wounds, burns, sores and sores. In 2007, Manuka honey was approved by the US FDA as a wound treatment option. Honey has antibacterial and antioxidant properties while maintaining a moist wound environment and a protective barrier that prevents microbial infection in the wound.

Multiple studies have shown that Manuka honey can promote wound healing, promote tissue regeneration, and even reduce pain in burn victims. For example, a two-week study investigated the effects of using manuka honey dressings on 40 people with non-healing wounds. The results showed that 88% of wounds shrank. In addition, it helps create an acidic wound environment, which is beneficial to wound healing.

Additionally, Manuka honey can help heal diabetic ulcers.

A study in Saudi Arabia found that Manuka honey wound dressings were more effective in healing diabetic ulcers when used in conjunction with conventional wound treatments than conventional treatments alone. Additionally, a Greek study showed that manuka honey wound dressings reduced healing time and disinfected wounds in patients with diabetic foot ulcers.

Another study looked at the effectiveness of manuka honey in healing eyelid wounds after surgery. They found that all eyelid wounds healed well whether the incisions were treated with manuka honey or petroleum jelly. However, patients report that scars treated with Manuka honey are less hard and significantly less painful than scars treated with Vaseline.

Finally, Manuka honey is effective in treating wound infections caused by antibiotic-resistant strains of Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Therefore, regular topical use of Manuka honey on wounds and infections can help prevent MRSA.

Promote oral health

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), almost 50% of Americans have some form of periodontal disease. To avoid tooth decay and keep your gums healthy, it's important to minimize harmful oral bacteria that can cause plaque to form. It's also important not to completely eliminate the good oral bacteria responsible for keeping your mouth healthy.
Research shows that Manuka honey attacks harmful oral bacteria associated with plaque formation, gum inflammation and tooth decay. Specifically, research shows that Manuka honey, which has high antibacterial activity, is effective against harmful oral bacteria such as Porphyromonas gingivalis and Actinomycetebacteria) growth.

One study examined the effects of chewing or sucking honey on reducing plaque and gingivitis. Honey chews are made from Manuka honey and are similar to chewy honey candies. After three meals each day, participants were instructed to chew or suck honey for 10 minutes or chew sugar-free gum. The honey chewing group had significantly less plaque and gum bleeding than those who chewed sugarless gum.

The idea of ​​consuming honey to improve your oral health may seem counterintuitive, since you may have been told that eating too many sweet foods can cause tooth decay. However, unlike candy and refined sugar, Manuka honey's potent antibacterial properties make it less likely to cause cavities or cavities.

Soothes sore throat

If you have a sore throat, Manuka honey may help relieve your discomfort. Its antiviral and antibacterial properties reduce inflammation and attack pain-causing bacteria. Not only does Manuka honey attack harmful bacteria, it also coats the lining of your throat and has a soothing effect.

A recent study of patients undergoing chemotherapy for head and neck cancer found the effects of consuming Manuka honey onStreptococcus mutans, the bacteria that cancause sore throats. Interestingly, researchers found a significant reduction in Streptococcus mutans after consuming Manuka honey.

In addition, Manuka honey reduces harmful oral bacteria that cause mucositis, a common side effect of radiation and chemotherapy. Mucositis causes inflammation and ulcerative ulcers of the mucous membranes lining the esophagus and digestive tract (.

People have been touting various types of honey as a natural cough suppressant for some time. In fact, one study found honey to be just as effective as regular cough medicine. Although manuka honey was not used in this study, it may be equally effective at suppressing coughs.

Help prevent gastric ulcers

Gastric ulcer is one of the most common diseases affecting humans. They are sores that form on the lining of the stomach, causing stomach pain, nausea, and bloating. Helicobacter pylori is the common bacterium that causes most stomach ulcers. Research shows that Manuka honey can help treat stomach ulcers caused by Helicobacter pylori.

For example, one test-tube study examined its effect on biopsies of gastric ulcers caused by Helicobacter pylori. The results were positive, suggesting that Manuka honey is a useful antimicrobial agent against H. pylori (H. pylori).

Excessive drinking may also cause gastric ulcers. However, one study in rats showed that manuka honey helped prevent alcohol-induced gastric ulcers.

Improve digestive symptoms

Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common digestive disorder. Its associated symptoms include constipation, diarrhea, abdominal pain and irregular bowel movements. Interestingly, researchers have found that regular consumption of manuka honey can help reduce these symptoms. Manuka honey has been shown to improve antioxidant status and reduce inflammation in rats with IBS and ulcerative colitis, a form of inflammatory bowel disease. It has also been shown to attack Clostridium difficile strains.

Clostridium difficile,commonly known as C. diff (C. diff), is a bacterium that causes severe diarrhea and bacterial infections of the intestinal tract. diff. C. diffis usually treated with antibiotics. However, a recent study observed the effectiveness of Manuka honey againstC. diffstrains.

Manuka honey kills C. diff cells, making it a potentially effective treatment. It’s important to note that the above studies observed manuka honey’s effects on bacterial infections in rats and test tube studies. Further research is needed to draw complete conclusions regarding its effects on intestinal bacterial infections.

Can treat symptoms of cystic fibrosis

Cystic fibrosis is a genetic disease that damages the lungs and may also affect the digestive system and other organs. It affects the cells that produce mucus, causing the mucus to be abnormally thick. This thick mucus can block the airways and tubes, making breathing difficult. Unfortunately, upper respiratory tract infections are very common among people with cystic fibrosis. Manuka honey has been shown to fight bacteria that cause upper respiratory tract infections. Pseudomonas aeruginosa andBurkholderia spp. Two common bacteria can cause serious upper respiratory tract infections, especially in vulnerable people.

One study observed the antibacterial effects of Manuka honey in patients with cystic fibrosis. The results show that it can inhibit their growth and be used in conjunction with antibiotic treatment. Therefore, the researchers concluded that manuka honey may play an important role in the treatment of upper respiratory tract infections, particularly in people with cystic fibrosis.

Treat acne

Acne is often caused by hormonal changes, but it can also be a response to a poor diet, stress, or bacterial growth in clogged pores. Manuka honey's antibacterial activity is often marketed to fight acne when combined with low pH products. Manuka honey can help keep your skin bacteria-free, speeding up the acne healing process. Likewise, because Manuka honey has anti-inflammatory properties, it is said to reduce inflammation caused by acne.

However, research on Manuka honey’s ability to treat acne is very limited. However, one study investigated the efficacy of Kanuka honey, which has similar antibacterial properties to Manuka honey. Studies have found that Kanuka honey is as effective as antibacterial soap in improving acne. Further research is needed to declare Manuka honey an effective home remedy for acne.

Is Manuka honey safe?

For most people, Manuka honey is safe to consume.

However, some people should consult a doctor before use, including:

  • People with diabetes. All types
    honey are rich in natural sugars. Therefore, consuming Manuka honey may affect blood sugar levels.
  • Tthose allergic to honey or bees. Those allergic
    to other types of honey or bees may have allergic reactions after
    ingesting or applying Manuka honey.
  • Infants Due to the risk of botulinum toxin, a food-borne illness, the American
    Academy of Pediatrics does not recommend feeding honey to infants
    under one year old
Health Benefits of Manuka Honey
Manuka honey is a unique honey. Its most notable property is its effect on wound management and healing. Manuka honey also has antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties that can help treat a variety of conditions, including irritable bowel syndrome, stomach ulcers, periodontal disease, and upper respiratory tract infections. It deserves further research to prove its beneficial properties. Taken together, Manuka honey, when used in conjunction with more traditional therapies, may be an effective treatment strategy to speed up the healing process.
