Miracle cure

Posted on Jul 14, 2011

16 people found the following review helpful

Purchased at iHerb

I use this orally, but also as an amazing tooth paste (keeps tooth pain at bay - let it soak in), and add a bit of thickner (xanthan gum) to make the most awesome skin salve - mix slowly (no air bubble entrapment), preferably with a plastic spoon, which does miracles. One night treatment improved circles under my eyes. Dose not sting in open wounds and will accelerate healing like nothing you've ever seen ... plunged a cut finger directly in the powder .. it healed with no peeling at wound edges (never had that happen before) and no scaring. Do not pre-mix ... it oxidizes VERY quickly as soon as it hits water losing the extra electron that it donates to intracellular processes.

MGO 550 means 550mg Methylglyoxal/kg ... that's good!

Do your research ... not all "Active Manuka Honey" is the same. If it doesn't not mention UMF, or MGO (Methylglyoxal), or non-peroxide activity then you're not getting the good stuff. Those three terms describe a special kind of enzyme which is only found in Manuka honey (but not all ... read the product details), which enzyme can make the honey up to 100 times more potent than other honey's against certain bacterial. If the honey is really yummy, it's not as good for you tummy (for you ulcer patients). The MGO-heavy stuff doesn't taste as good, but hey, you can always chase it down with the yummy stuff. You need at least 100mg/kg MGO to inhibit major bacteria.

non-peroxidal activity - this is the real stuff

Do your research ... not all "Active Manuka Honey" is the same. Some is hardly better than your regular table honey. All honey is "Active" ... ie - has antibacterial activity, when first obtained, but only UMF certified honey has MGO (Methylglyoxal) which is the Unique Manuka Factor antibacterial activity that isn't hydrogen-peroxide based like all other honey enzymes and thus is not destroyed by light or heat. If it doesn't not mention UMF, or MGO (Methylglyoxal), or non-peroxide activity then you're not getting the good stuff.

non-peroxide activity

Just ordered this ... am giving it a 5 star because it's the only "manuka honey" lozenge that is qualified to mention that it has non-peroxide activity. All honey's have antibiotic qualities, but what makes some (but not all) manuka honeys special is Methylglyoxal (MGO) which exhibits the Unique Manuka Factor (UMF) antibacterial activity that isn't hydrogen-peroxide based like all other honey enzymes and thus is not destroyed by light or heat. If it doesn't not mention UMF, or MGO (Methylglyoxal), or non-peroxide activity then you're getting honey where most of the antibacterial properties may be lost and are not as potent against bacteria as MGO based enzymes found in the best of Manuka honeys.

Just an FYI...

Posted on Oct 15, 2009

What makes this a gel instead of a juice is merely that a thickener is added to this. Read the product details: this is made from "Aloe Vera juice". The thickener (carageenan) may help for topical application or internal use although the un-thickened form (juice) may diffuse into tissue better depending on the use or application method. When first removed from the plant it comes out a gel, but in all cases (regardless of brand) the enzymes turn it into a juice by the time it gets bottled. Thickeners are added to give it a gel-like consistency, but the thickeners have a negligible effect on the nutritional value.
