Press Release Summary: Honey could be the new antibiotic, according Honeymark
International, manufacturer of health care products containing Active Manuka Honey
as a healing agent.

Press Release Body: Bacteria protect themselves from antibiotics by forming slimy
clumps as a protective layer. However, scientists have now discovered that honey is
effective in breaking down this protective barrier. Bacteria is the main cause for
wounds not healing fast enough and with the recent outbreaks of antibiotic-resistant
strains of bacteria, this is becoming more of a problem.

If bacteria multiply enough to form a slimy mass or bio-film, they are much less
sensitive to antibiotics and antiseptics. Doctors treating infected wounds need to
remove this bio-film so that they can prevent the spread of bacteria. Bio-films
prevent healing in wounds and may lead to chronic ulcers.

Laboratory studies indicate that wounds treated with a special type of honey known
as \"Manuka Honey\" are able to heal more rapidly and the bio-film is disrupted. This
suggests that Manuka Honey could be a viable solution to treating infected wounds,
more so than antibiotics. With the increase in MRSA cases and other hospital
infections from antibiotic-resistant bacteria, doctors need more effective

A company called Honeymark International has developed an over-the-counter wound
dressing containing Manuka Honey that is effective against tough bio-films and
bacteria. This First Aid Antiseptic Lotion with Manuka Honey is effective in
treating staph infections and other hard to heal wounds. It\'s also effective in
treating burns and skin ulcers. \"The reason why Manuka Honey is more effective in
destroying bacteria is because Manuka Honey has the ability to draw water out of the
bacteria, making it impossible for the bacteria to survive,\" says Frank Buonanotte,
CEO of Honeymark International. \"As a result Manuka Honey is the most important
ingredient to consider for wound care products as nothing else has proven to be as
