What is Medical Honey?

Active medical honey or medical grade honey is produced from Leptospermum plants found growing in both Australia and New Zealand. The honey from these plants has unique healing properties not found in other honeys. At Australia's Manuka we use cold extraction and organic production methods to ensure the special properties found in these honeys are preserved and maintained.

What is it used for?

Active Jellybush Honey has potent healing properties which enhance, protect and actively support the body’s own defences. Typically, medical grade honey is used for wound care, as a digestive aid, for relieving sore throats, stomach ulcers, pressure sores, bacterial infections and for treating burns. It is found in First Aid Kits, Hospitals and Doctor's Surgeries.

Why does it work?

Active Jellybush Honey is know to be effective antibiotic resistant Staphlyococcus, MRSA infections. It improves wound healing by stimulating cytokine release, by keeping the wound area moist and by fighting bacteria. It is known to contain hydrogen peroxide releasing enzymes, methylglyoxal, bioflavanoids and phenolic compounds. Recent research has shown that it can break down biofilms.
