Healing Eczema with Manuka Honey
Eczema and should be treated inside and outside.
For internal use:
It is known that active UMF 20 + Manuka Honey improves the immune system. Application of Manuka Honey orally helps to boost the immune system, which in turn brings relief for people experiencing reactions of eczema. Strengthening the immune system can provide long-term care for people suffering from eczema.
Contact eczema is caused by a reaction of the skin to the bacteria that live on the skin surface. Application of Active UMF20 + Manuka Honey directly to the skin surface kills harmful bacteria on the skin, thus eliminating the cause of this reaction.
Honey also provides a moist environment on the skin, helping to heal already affected area.
Manuka honey specificity
Manuka Honey is produced by bees that gather nectar from the flowers of Manuka Tree (Leptospermum Scoparium). Manuka tree or shrub grows wild on undeveloped land and the hills of New Zealand.
Not every honey, collected from the flowers of the Manuka tree has a certified UMF ® activity. In some areas, the trees do not produce Manuka honey, which contains the same number of UMF ® each year. For this reason, each batch of Manuka Honey is tested after packaging of honey in jars, to ensure accurate labeling properties of UMF ®. Presence of hydrogen peroxide in all kinds of honey is due to the action of an enzyme that is added by bees to honey. Specificity of UMF ® is that this chemical property honey obtains with phytochemicals – that is, directly from the nectar of Manuka flowers.
Researchers still can not prove it, whether the factor UMF ® is derived from a certain subspecies of the Manuka bush, or is caused by some environmental factors such as soil quality. Furthermore, it is impossible to predict the level of UMF ® from year to year. Therefore, each batch is tested and certified after the honey has been packed.
