Manuka Honey could be the new antibiotic, according to Frank Buonanotte, CEO of Honeymark International, a manufacturer of honey-based health care products. By studying the way bacteria protect themselves from attack by forming slimy clumps, Honeymark scientists have discovered that Manuka Honey may be an effective new weapon in breaking up the microbes’ defenses.

“If the bacteria can multiply enough to form a slimy mass called a biofilm, they are much less sensitive to antibiotics and antiseptics,” says Frank Buonanotte. “Doctors treating badly injured and infected patients urgently need to remove these biofilms so that they can treat their wounds safely, and prevent the spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.”

Honeymark scientists studied six different strains of bacteria, five of which came from injuries. The bacteria was grown in a laboratory to form biofilms, which are notoriously difficult to treat when they appear as hospital infections. Biofilms prevent healing in wounds and may lead to chronic ulcers. The laboratory grown samples were treated with Manuka Honey, then unattached bacteria were washed off and the remaining slime layer was studied after different time periods. In every sample, the biofilm was disrupted making it more susceptible to the treatment with conventional antibiotics. This research could have a major impact on the medical industry, particularly the way medical professionals look at wound care. It's also important to note that Manuka Honey has no known harmful side effects.

“Manuka Honey could be a realistic alternative to treatment with antibiotics and antiseptics,” says Frank Buonanotte. “With the rise in hospital infections from resistant bacteria, there is a need for more effective treatments. Dressings with Manuka Honey is available by Honeymark and for the first time we are seeing that Manuka Honey is effective against these tough biofilms as well as slowing isolated bacteria.”
