The Challenge

Antibiotics are used to kill or inhibit the growth of infection-causing bacteria. However, antibiotic treatment may impose adverse effects in some individuals. There may be cases whereby the bacteria become increasingly resistant to the antibiotic, meaning that the particular type of antibiotic is ineffective anymore in treating the condition. Moreover, antibiotics will disrupt the balance between the good and the bad bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract and diarrhea may be the result.

 

The solution: NewLife™ Manuka Honey

New Zealand doctors have discovered an alternative to antibiotics, which is Manuka Honey. Manuka Honey fights the bacteria effectively and naturally, without the side effects which antibiotics produce. This special honey possesses unique and highly beneficial immune supporting function.

All honey contain antibacterial component called hydrogen peroxide. However, the difference between Pure Raw Honey and Manuka Honey lies in the extraordinary antibacterial properties of Manuka Honey. Besides hydrogen peroxide, Manuka Honey from New Zealand has shown to possess special antibacterial factor known as the Unique Manuka Factor (UMF). This special antibacterial factor works hand in hand with hydrogen peroxide to produce a synergistic effect of high antibacterial activity. Most importantly, unlike hydrogen peroxide which is sensitive to heat, light, water and catalase effect on the body serum, UMF is relatively stable. It remains in the honey and does not lose its antibacterial strength over time. This contributed to its medicinal qualities that are not found in other honeys. Laboratory tests have found that Manuka honey is effective against a wide range of bacteria, which include:

 

• Helicobacter pylori - this bacteria causes most stomach ulcers5

 

• Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli - the most common cause of infected wounds and (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)5

 

• Streptococcus pyogenes - causes sore throats5

 

Manuka Honey is regenerative and health enhancing. Its delicious flavor enhances any foods or beverages. Manuka Honey:
