Press Release Summary: Health care products containing Manuka Honey are being used
to treat conditions such as eczema, arthritis, ringworm and infected wounds.

Press Release Body: Sometimes modern medicine doesn\'t take the power of natural
remedies into consideration. There have been many instances where science has
overlooked folk remedies and natural healing practices, only to be proven wrong in
the end. Fortunately, more people are now becoming aware that pharmaceuticals aren\'t
always the best solution.

Honey is finally gaining it\'s well-deserved recognition as recent studies display
its amazing healing properties. The general public is beginning to recognize that
honey is very good for our bodies, both internally and externally. Honey has been
used for medical purposes in India, Egypt, Greece and Africa for thousands of years.
However, a specific type of honey known as \"Manuka Honey\" (indigenous to New
Zealand) is quickly gaining popularity as the ideal type of honey to use as an
ingredient in various medical products because of its strong antibacterial,
antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties.

For the past two decades, researchers at the University of Waikato have been
discovering that Manuka Honey is a superior form of treatment for infected wound.
Manuka honey is made by bees that gather nectar from the flowers that grow on the
manuka bush (also known as Leptospermum scoparium) which grows throughout New

The clinical observations of the trial studies revealed that infection is rapidly
cleared, inflammation, swelling and pain are quickly reduced and healing occurs
rapidly with minimal scarring. The antimicrobial properties of honey prevent
microbial growth in the moist healing environment created, and unlike other topical
antiseptics, honey causes no tissue damage. Another benefit of using Manuka Honey as
a wound dressing is that it prevents the dressing from sticking to the wound, so
there is no pain or tissue damage when dressings are changed.

\"Honey has antibacterial qualities, due primarily to hydrogen peroxide formed in a
slow-release manner by the enzyme, glucose oxidase present,\" says Frank Buonanotte,
CEO of Honeymark International, a manufacturer of health care products containing
Active Manuka Honey as a healing agent. \"Manuka Honey is the only honey that is
tested for its antibacterial activity because it contains an additional
antibacterial component found only in honey produced from Leptospermum plants. This
additional antibacterial component has become known as the \"Unique Manuka Factor\" or
UMF.\" There is also evidence that the two antibacterial components have a
synergistic action.

Manuka Honey is considered to be the most valuable medicinal honey in the world. As
a result, manufacturers are now utilizing this natural resource as a main ingredient
in health care products. Such products include wound care lotions, pain relief
creams, eczema products, anti-fungal solutions, etc. For more information or to
