Professor Peter Molan is a pioneering biochemist and an expert on the benefits of using medical grade Manuka honey on wounds.
I’ve been asked why I think that Manuka Honey is the ideal material to use on wounds, cuts and abrasions there are many reasons for that.
Firstly, where I started the research with the antibacterial properties found in New Zealand Manuka Honey. It has a very broad spectrum of action, in fact we haven’t found any species that it doesn’t work on, and it works on wounds that are resistant to antibiotics, which makes it very useful in treating infected wounds, because so many bacteria these days are resistant to antibiotics.
And then besides that antibacterial activity, it has a very potent anti-inflamatory activity and inflammation is what stops wounds from healing – infection causes inflammation but other things can cause inflammation, so that anti-inflammatory activity is very important.
The anti-inflammatory action is also important because it stops scarring…you can get invisible mending – scar free healing – if you use active Manuka Honey on the wound.
…. it also stimulates the body’s own immune response, the white blood cells get activated, so they also help with clearing that infection. So the active Manuka Honey is very effective in getting tissue to repair the wound; to heal up a lot more quickly.
Besides these actions, honey in general has the properties of providing nutrients to the wound which helps with the healing process. And very importantly with the very high content of glucose that’s in honey, its providing the essential energy source for the white blood cells to get to to work – clearing up infection, clearing up dead tissue, and starting off that healing process.
