How can Manuka Honey help with stomach bacteria and gastric infections?

Updated: Jul 27, 2023

Manuka honey is a type of honey that is made from the nectar of the Manuka tree. This type of honey is unique because it has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral properties. Recent studies have found that Manuka honey can be effective in treating a wide range of stomach bacteria infections.


Stomach bacteria can cause a variety of illnesses such as stomach ulcers, gastritis, and even stomach cancer. Traditionally, antibiotics were used to treat these types of infections. However, overuse of antibiotics has led to antibiotic resistance, making these drugs less effective.


This is where Manuka honey comes in. Manuka honey contains a compound called methylglyoxal (MGO) that has been shown to be effective against antibiotic-resistant bacteria. One study found that Manuka honey was effective against Helicobacter pylori (H. Pilori), the bacteria that is known to cause stomach ulcers.


In addition to its antibacterial properties, Manuka honey also has anti-inflammatory properties. This means that it can help reduce inflammation in the stomach lining caused by bacteria. This can be particularly beneficial for people who suffer from chronic stomach inflammation.


Another benefit of Manuka honey is that it can promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut. This can help improve digestion and reduce the risk of infections caused by harmful bacteria.


When it comes to using Manuka honey for stomach bacteria, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, it’s important to choose a high-quality honey that is certified as Manuka honey. Look for a MF (Manuka Factor) rating of at least 16+, or MGO 650+, to ensure that you are getting a genuine product. Our clients at Totika highly appreciate our Manuka honey MGO 850+ (MF 20+) and MGO 1050+ (MF 23+) for its high efficacy in relieving their symptoms and improving their Gastrointestinal health.

Second, it’s important to use the honey correctly. Manuka honey can be consumed directly or added to food and drinks. However, it’s important to avoid heating the honey as this can destroy its beneficial properties.


Finally, it’s important to use Manuka honey in combination with other treatments. While Manuka honey can be effective in treating stomach bacteria, it should not be used as a sole treatment. Always consult with a healthcare professional to determine the best course of treatment for your specific condition.


In conclusion, Manuka honey is a natural and effective way to treat stomach bacteria infections. Its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and gut-promoting properties make it an ideal option for those looking for an alternative to antibiotics. As always, it’s important to use Manuka honey in combination with other treatments and under the guidance of a healthcare.
