About the Product

Antibacterial activity

In Vitro studies (George et al 2007) have shown that Leptospermum spp (Manuka) honey is effective against bacteria commonly found in wounds including:

  • Multiresistant Staphylococcus aureus
  • Multiresistant Acinetobacter baumanni
  • Vancomycin Resistant Enterococcus (VanA, VanB, VanC)
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  • ESBL positive Klebsiella pneumoniae
  • ESBL producing isolates of Escherichia coli
  • Enterobacter cloacae

Faster healing

In a 105 patient randomized controlled trial (Robson et al 2009) in which patients received either a conventional wound dressing or Leptospermum spp (Manuka) honey, the average healing time of the honey group was 29% faster.
