We all know the countless benefits we can derive from unrefined honey but only just recently, there has been a new discovery in the scientific world that there a kind of honey that can eliminate all kinds of bacteria including the ones considered to be very atrocious.
In a publication by the European Journal of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Disease it was concluded, after a study that this discovery is of great value especially now when bacteria have become resistant to most antibiotics available. This honey promises to be effective against all bacteria including the super bug.

The manufacturers insisted on patenting their brand and having a trademark to protect it just like whiskey produced by the Scots and the champagne by the French. This is one of the reason why not so many know about the immense benefit of this kind of honey.

In a study carried out by the Australian, it was discovered that the Manuka honey has the capacity to eliminate all kinds of pathogen and bacteria that was put against it.

A lot of pharmaceutical companies have stopped producing antibiotics because of it has become increasing hard to recover costs. The discovery of valuable alternatives will definitely save a lot of lives. He goes on to cite methylglyoxal as the agent that renders Manuka highly effectual in killing bacteria.
