Aspirin-Induced Gastrointestinal Toxicity (honey coats the delicate linings of the stomach, preventing aspirin-

induced lesions and bleeding)

Bacterial Infections


Candida infection (despite the fact that honey contains sugar, it demonstrates anti- fungal properties)

Conjunctivitis Dental plaque (a recent study showed that Manuka honey was a viable alternative to chemical mouthwash in dissolving dental plaque)


Diabetic Ulcer

Herpes-related ulcers

MRSA (especially for Manuka honey)


Replacing synthetic sweeteners or highly processed sugars or high fructose corn syrup with a moderate amount of honey may be a great preventative health step to take.
