From ancient times, people used honey to treat several conditions. In the late 19th century, researchers discovered that honey has natural antibacterial properties. Some honey also stimulates growth of special cells that can fix infection-damaged tissues. Honey also has anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce pain and inflammation.
TheraHoney products contain 100% sterile, medical-grade Manuka honey with no fillers or additives. Manuka honey is derived from the pollen and nectar of the Leptospermum scoparium plant in New Zealand. The honey comb is used only once, and after harvesting, the honey is carefully filtered, irradiated and laboratory-tested for high efficacy.
Active Manuka gel is ideal for difficult to dress wounds. It is Indicated for use on wounds with no drainage to moderate drainage.
High sugar levels (87%) in TheraHoney result in osmotic pressure that helps promote autolytic debridement of necrotic tissue, a moist wound healing environment, and rapid reduction of wound odor.
Recommended for use on partial and full-thickness wounds, leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, 1 st and 2nd degree burns, diabetic foot ulcers, surgical wounds and trauma wounds under the supervision of a healthcare professional, and minor abrasions, lacerations or cuts, minor scalds and burns.
