Manuka honey is produced by bees that pollinate the flowers of the Manuka bush found in New Zealand. While you might have already heard about it, you may not know what makes it so special.
According to WebMD, all types of honey have natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, but Manuka honey has high levels of another antibacterial compound called methylglyoxal (MG), which makes it more potent than other kinds of honey.
Please note that giving any type of honey to a child under one year old is unsafe due to the risk of a condition called botulism. Also, if you are allergic to bee stings, diabetic, have a heart condition or had tuberculosis, it is advisable to consult a doctor before taking honey.
