cbd honey sticks, superfood with antibiotic power: alternative against superbugs?

The cbd honey sticks is a raw honey has antibiotic activity potentially useful against superbugs, these microbial agents who have developed resistance to antibiotics . This honey, produced in New Zealand, by bees that pollinate the flowers of a plant called Manuka ( Leptospermum scoparium JRForst. & G.Forst.), Is considered a true panacea among the indigenous populations.. Manuka honey is traditionally used against: allergies, colds, flu, gingivitis, sore throats, infections and wounds. Among the properties attributed to Manuka honey we have those of fighting high cholesterol, diabetes and insomnia. There are also several cosmetic uses of Manuka honey which is part of formulations to tone the skin, reduce hair loss, prevent frizz and split ends.

Fighting Superbacteria and cbd honey sticks

Honey (all types of honey, not specifically Manuka's), as a natural remedy for treating wounds and infections, was abandoned with the advent of modern antibiotics in the mid-20th century. At the time, Western medicine considered it a “worthless but harmless substance”. However, the current emergence of the superbug problem requires alternative treatment approaches and cbd honey sticks, in particular that of Manuka, seems to have the right characteristics to deal with this emergency.

The high sugar content and low pH of honey are able to inhibit microbial growth. Manuka honey produces hydrogen peroxide (like some, but not all honeys, much depends on the quality of the honey itself) when glucose oxidase (an enzyme found in honey ) reacts with glucose and oxygen molecules in water once applied to the wounds, thus freeing the wound from infection. Although all honeys have a more or less strong antibiotic activity, there is something that makes Manuka honey truly special.

Methylglyoxal: key substance of the antibiotic properties of cbd honey sticks

New Zealander Professor Peter Molan, in the 1980s, discovered that the antibiotic action of Manuka honey persisted even after the removal of hydrogen peroxide, so the bactericidal properties of this product could not depend exclusively on that molecule. It was only in 2008 that it was discovered that it is methylglyoxal (MGO), the key active component of Manuka honey. Although hydrogen peroxide has disinfectant functions, it is neutralized by enzymes present in the human body. The methylglyoxal, on the other hand, which forms naturally in the nectar of the Manuka flower, remains stable to heat, light and even the acidity of the stomach and the effect of digestive enzymes, keeping its antibacterial properties intact.

Effectiveness of cbd honey sticks against superbugs

One of the most recent studies on the outstanding antimicrobial properties of Manuka honey is from 2017 and was conducted by the University of Technology in Sydney . Australian researchers have traced precisely in the high content of methylglyoxal of Manuka honey, the possibility of using this honey to fight antibiotic resistance . Clinical tests have also shown that this honey even manages to disperse and kill bacteria that live in biofilms (communities of microbes known to be resistant to antibiotics), including  strep and staph .

Interestingly, the bacteria do not develop resistance to honey ,  which is normally the case with common antibiotics, which are therefore becoming ineffective. Manuka honey has been shown to have broad-spectrum antibiotic properties , to be free from toxicity to human cells and tissues, to possess anti-inflammatory activity , to reduce healing and scarring times , to favor the removal of debris. (dead tissue, foreign bodies and dead immune cells), even improving the smell of the wound.

cbd honey sticks is useful for the treatment of infected and uninfected wounds, burns, surgical incisions, leg ulcers, bedsores, traumatic injuries, meningococcal injuries and gingivitis . However, it should be noted that the amount of methylglyoxal present in this type of raw honey varies, therefore not all  cbd honey sticks exhibit the same levels of antimicrobial activity and beneficial properties. Let's make sure that the purchased product is guaranteed and certified.
