Even though all honey is known to have antibacterial properties, Manuka honey has far more benefits than the average kind.

As well as being a natural remedy for wounds and having anti-fungal properties, here are more reasons to have Manuka honey in your kitchen:

Energy booster
The high levels of fructose and glucose will give you an instant energy boost.

Skin treatment
It can be applied topically to treat sunburn, scarring or insect bites.

Gum disease
If you rub honey on your gums every now and again, it can help fight the bacteria that cause gum disease.

Bye bye stomach ulcers
Manuka honey has been proven to prevent the growth of bacteria responsible for causing stomach ulcers.

Sore throat
Even though honey is generally known to treat sore throats, Manuka Honey is possibly the best remedy for this illness. Swallow a spoonful of Manuka honey before bed and let it soothe away the pain overnight.
