Maluka honey -elixir for ailments?

Discussion in 'Personal' started by tartetatin, Sep 5, 2011.

  1. I thought it was Ma<u>n</u>uka honey?!
    Sorry, no personal experiences to offer, but my mum swears by the stuff!
     
  2. Ooh, you may find it's cheaper in the supermarket. H&B tend to be fairly pricey.
     
  3. Indeed it is, tartetatin. Thank you for the correction.

     
  4. No bother!
    Have just checked Tesco online for you. It's about a tenner a jar in there.
     
  5. Can you elaborate?

     
  6. Manuka honey has been found to be moderately effective (i.e. don't even bother comparing it with a standard antibiotic from a pharmaceutical company) against S. aureus when compared with other honeys. Its composition beyond that is fructose, glucose and water, none of which has any particular health-giving qualities besides calories.
    If you have reason to believe that your complaint is derived from an infection with S.aureus, then knock yourself out. Otherwise consult a GP.
