Manuka honey has well proven anti-bacterial properties which assist in wound healing as well as providing wonderful nutritional components for immune modulation.
Teatree (Leptospermum scoparium) is a shrub which occurs along the south east coast of Australia, in Tasmania and in New Zealand, where it is called Manuka. The naturally-occurring compound methylglyoxal was identified in mid-2006 as the dominant anti-bacterial constituent of Manuka Honey. Before this discovery, the anti-bacterial properties of Manuka Honey were compared with varying concentrations of phenol, a laboratory standard disinfectant. Studies at the Technical University of Dresden in Germany and at the University of Waikato in New Zealand, have now proven that the Manuka's antibacterial properties are directly related to methylglyoxal content. Methylglyoxal has been reported in foods such as milk products as well as beer, wine and coffee, with concentrations ranging from 3 to 50mg/kg. Levels in Manuka Honey range from 0 to more than 700mg/kg and levels above 100mg/kg are required for antibacterial efficacy- Charles Dragar PhD.
