Improves Sleep. Along with hydrogen peroxide, manuka honey contains methylglyoxal (MGO) and dihydroxyacetone, two chemical substances with high antimicrobial action, and probably other bioactive compounds that give it additional potency. These chemicals are more stable than hydrogen peroxide which easily gets neutralized by heat, moisture, enzymatic action. Manuka honey is actually graded according to its non-peroxide antibacterial potency, referred to as Unique Manuka Factor (UMF). Honey is naturally rich in fructose and many other reducing sugars, amino acids, enzymes and B-complex vitamins, particularly thiamin (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), and B6. Amino acids in honey are mainly proline, tyrosine, lysine, and phenylalanine with valine, arginine, histidine and glutamic acid in lesser amounts. The nutritional value of honey is partially dependent on its mineral content which includes calcium, phosphorus, iron, zinc, copper, sodium, potassium, magnesium, and manganese in various amounts. Manuka honey has been found to be effective in preventing colonic inflammation and effecting the repair of colon lining damaged due to chronic Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). Although the symptoms of IBD such as stomach pain and cramps are similar to those of Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), the two are different in many aspects.IBS is the most common gastrointestinal complaint characterized by constipation and diarrhea in addition to stomach discomfort. However, it is a functional disorder unlike the IBD which displays similar symptoms, but is associated with inflammation and other structural changes in the bowel lining, as in Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.In laboratory experiments conducted on rats with chemically induced colonic damage, oral administration of manuka honey was found to not only reduce the inflammation, but protect against structural damage too. Manuka honey is a blessing to people suffering from chronic sinusitis that takes several weeks to resolve, even with the use of antibiotics. The reason is that, the microbes that cause the infection of the warm, moist sinus chambers often make a biofilm with a polysaccharide matrix that prevents antibiotics from reaching the target.Honey has a drying effect on the mucosal lining, which helps bring down sinus congestion. Its capacity to draw out water helps it to destroy the bacterial biofilms. Manuka honey, in particular, can act against virulent bacteria such as Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa that are the common pathogens found in sinus infections. The Methylglyoxal (MGO) in this honey should be responsible for this effect. The list goes on and on. What a blessing the bees are...
