How does medical-grade honey work?

This particular species of honey has been known throughout Europe and other countries for years to have great antibacterial properties and benefits in wound care. When a Medihoney dressing is placed on the wound, the honey pulls moisture from deeper tissues up to the surface keeping the wound moist. As it does this, hydrogen peroxide is produced by an enzyme in the honey, glucose oxidase, which contributes to it’s antibacterial activity.

This activity, plus the honey’s general resistance to bacteria gives it it’s bactericidal and bacteriostatic properties. The outflow of fluid also helps to remove necrotic tissue from the wound bed, making room for new, healthy tissue to develop. This type of wound dressing is natural, safe, very easy to use and has been proven to be effective in a variety of situation. Simply place on the affected area and cover with a secondary dressing to hold it in place and watch as your patient’s wound heals!
