Honey is considered as nature miracle due to its powerful anti-bacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties. Moreover, honey has the ability to kill germs because it contains defensin-1, a protein made by the bees.
Topical application of honey will help you kill numerous pathogens like MRSA and flesh-eating bacteria. Unlike the conventional medicines, honey has the ability to fight many infections without allowing the bacteria to develop resistance.
According to Susan M. Meschwitz, honey has the ability to provide an osmotic effect which originates from the high sugar concentration of honey. In fact, honey draws the water from the bacteria cells and as a result of that, the pathogens dehydrate and die.
Another biochemist, Peter Molan dedicated almost 25 years of his life on studying honey as a natural antibiotic. He discovered that Manuka honey can kill even the most resistant bacteria. Moreover, he claims that honey is more powerful in healing wounds than any other pharmaceutical products.
Honey is a rich source of probiotics, vitamins, antioxidants and minerals, but also in vitamin A, C, B5 (pantothenic acid), B2 (riboflavin) and B3 (nicotinic acid). Besides that, honey is also abundant in minerals like calcium, magnesium, iodine, iron, zinc and copper.
People should always choose honey to treat bacterial illness instead of using pharmaceuticals.
The most important thing here is to use raw, organic honey since the heating during manufacturing destroys the essential enzymes and nutrients. Moreover, locally grown honey is far more beneficial because it has the immune stimulating properties that your body needs so it can adapt to its environment.
