How PURITI Manuka honey New Zealand supports gut health

Manuka honey supports gut health

Back in the 1980s, it was shown that the pure New Zealand Manuka honey we all know and love was was scientifically reported to halt bacterial growth related to digestive problems. Thanks to special antibacterial activity, it became a secret weapon in keeping the digestive system healthy. Now, over three decades later, we know that the strength of high quality Manuka honey’s power may actually extend to numerous types of bacteria.

According to all the tests and studies we’ve seen over the years, the best quality Manuka honey can kill over 50 types of bacteria. Within this, we find several that are known to cause digestive problems; this includes staph (staphylococcus aureus), H.pylori (helicobacter pylori), and E.coli (escherichia coli).

When these bacteria are allowed to thrive, they cause the body serious problems from food poisoning to colitis, peptic ulcers to gastritis, and everything in between.

The power of PURITI Manuka honey, the best Manuka honey brand in New Zealand

These days, the antimicrobial power of pure New Zealand Manuka honey is not so much a secret but what people may not know is that it’s also an effective prebiotic. As well as killing pathogenic gut bacteria, it encourages the growth of existing probiotic bacteria within in vitro (artificial environment) studies.

Although antibiotic treatments can be effective, they can only do so much due to their inability to distinguish between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ bacteria. The reason these treatments work is because they kill ALL bacteria, but this doesn’t help in the long-term. If the bad bacteria grow back much faster than the good, the body is left unprotected again. With Manuka honey, studies have indicated that, this problem may be resolved since only the bad bacteria will be targeted while the good bacteria has the environment it needs to thrive.

 

If you’ve never tried Manuka honey UMF from New Zealand, we urge you to give it a go today (if not for us, for your gut!).
