Manuka honey for dog and cat, is a type of honey little known, which grows in the wild in the form of shrub or small tree in New Zealand, is considered a medicinal honey for its strong antibacterial properties, due in particular to an active ingredient called methylglyoxal (MG or methylglyoxal).
In New Zealand, a proverb says: “Where antibiotics fail, Manuka honey arrives”.
It is increasingly used in hospitals around the world to keep wounds free of infection, treat stomach ulcers and strengthen the immune system of cancer patients receiving chemotherapy. Some use it to relieve coughing, sore throat and to treat digestive disorders, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBD).
The one that has the most methylglyoxal is called UMF manuka honey.
All honeys have antibacterial activity due to the content of hydrogen peroxide, but Manuka honey is an antibacterial with additional power that is measured by the UMF (Unique Manuka Factor). It is a rigorous method for measuring its effectiveness.
Studies suggest that some types of Manuka honey can contain up to 550 mg of methylglyoxal per kilo, a concentration 50 times higher than conventional honey. It is a food that is also studied and tested in the oncological field.
Manuka Health Honey always bears the letters MGO
Ownership of Manuka Honey
- Powerful disinfectant
- Mucous infections of the oral cavity
- Intestinal inflammation (IBD)
- Strengthens the immune system
- Escherichia coli
For what diseases is Manuka Honey effective?
- Wounds and minor burns
- Gingivitis and other mouth disorders
in digestive difficulties burning stomach, gastroesophageal reflux, gastritis, stomach and duodenum ulcers
When support for the immune system against infections is needed as Manuka honey also has immunomodulating properties.
The first scientific studies carried out in a rational way date back to just under 20 years ago (1991), thanks to the dedication shown by researchers in the Department of Biology of the University of Waikato (New Zealand) especially in the person of Prof. Peter Molan.
Even then, it was noticed, investigating the antibacterial properties of different types of monoflora honey obtained from over 26 different species of plants, that the one obtained from the flowers of Leptospermum scoparmi was among the most active in this regard.
It was also seen that by subjecting Manuka Honey to enzymatic action to eliminate peroxides, its activity did not vary significantly, confirming that the antibacterial action, is not attributable to the peroxides present.
This honey is now the only one that keeps the antibacterial activity unchanged having the advantage of not having to rely solely on the action of hydrogen peroxide.
This peculiar peculiarity has been called UMF (Unique Manuka Factor) and is indicated with a specific value, for each honey sample, which indicates the percentage of phenol in solution that has the same bactericidal power.
Manuka Homey use cat dog
- Very infected wounds that don’t heal
Manuka honey must have a certified concentration of methylglyoxal, the concentration of MGO is variable, on the market you can buy honey with different concentrations see the Manuka Honey – MGO 550+
