How Manuka Honey Works
The following six factors work together to provide broad-spectrum activity against bacteria. Honey has the right mix for maximum destruction.
- Methylglyoxal (MGO). The amount of MGO, an antibacterial compound, determines its level of antibacterial activity. This unique compound is what differentiates manuka from other honeys.
- Hydrogen peroxide. The honey enzyme called glucose oxidase makes hydrogen peroxide when honey is diluted with water. This is produced when the bee adds enzymes to the nectar.
- Sugar. Honey has so much sugar there’s hardly any water for bacteria to grow in.
- Bee defensin 1. A protein found in royal jelly (special food for queen bee larva) works as an antibiotic.
- Acid. Diluted honey has a pH of around 3.5; the acidic environment slows down bacterial growth.
- Dehydration. Manuka honey draws water out of the bacteria, making it impossible for microbes to survive
