Thanks to Manuka honey's powerful healing activities, MANUKAhoney is an all-around, all-natural medical treatment
Irvine, California (Vocus) May 13, 2010
Links Medical Products Inc. (LMP), a leader in the manufacture and marketing of innovative, healthcare products for use in both acute and long-term care, announces the launch of new MANUKAhoney Medical-grade Manuka Honey. MANUKAhoney is the effective, versatile, natural treatment for a variety of medical conditions.
Research shows that medical-grade Manuka honey offers bacteriostatic1 and antioxidant2,3 properties to help promote internal and external healing. Anti-inflammatory1 properties of Manuka honey help reduce pain, scarring, and accelerate healing.
For these reasons, medical-grade Manuka honey effectively treats a wide range of internal health conditions, such as aiding digestive health, stimulating the immune system, and relieving sore or strep throat; and for external health conditions including skin care, lip care, wound care, and first-aid care.
“Thanks to Manuka honey’s powerful healing activities, MANUKAhoney is an all-around, all-natural medical treatment,” says Tom Buckley, Links Medical Products’ CEO. “Manuka honey has also been found to be effective against a variety of bacteria, including Staphylococcus aureus, MRSA, and E-coli.”
MANUKAhoney has a certified Molan Gold Standard of 16. The Molan Gold Standard is the internationally recognized certification of authentic Manuka honey. It is named for the pioneer researcher in the field, Professor Peter Molan, MBE. The Molan Gold Standard is licensed only to companies meeting Professor Molan’s standards for identifying and measuring the medicinal activity in Manuka honey, so it allows consumers to readily recognize authenticated medicinal Manuka honey.
MANUKAhoney is part of the new line of ManukaMed® brand of medical-grade Manuka honey products to maintain general health and well-being and to treat and manage burns and wounds. Other products include MANUKAlozenges® Sore Throat Relief, MANUKAbalm® Lip Therapy, MANUKApli® Sterile Wound Dressing, and MANUKAderm® Skin Protectant.
The ManukaMed brand of Manuka honey is unique in the U.S. because it is harvested exclusively from bees that pollinate the Manuka bush (a species known as Leptospermum scoparium), native only to New Zealand. The ManukaMed brand contains pure Manuka honey and never a blend of Manuka honey, unlike other products on the market.”
LMP and its New Zealand partner ensure complete traceability and control over the production of its ManukaMed brand of medical-grade Manuka honey—from beehive to final product. This level of control is unique among Manuka honey companies who often buy honey on the open market or contract with multiple suppliers who do not have rigorous controls.
LMP and its New Zealand partner guarantee a reliable supply of medical-grade Manuka honey for its ManukaMed line of products through access to the Manuka forest; a long-term, relationship-building policy with landowners; and the development of new Manuka groves. Together with the New Zealand government, the company has pioneered a school for beekeepers to ensure essential skills are maintained and improved.
In addition, every step in the production chain is carefully considered to ensure the ManukaMed brand of medical-grade Manuka honey products meets the highest standards. In association with medical professionals, Links Medical Products has developed stringent test methods for medical-grade Manuka honey.
