Medical grade honey is carefully processed and sterilized organic honey used for medical application on wounds. It is distinct from regular honey that is consumed as a food product; it has strict criteria to guarantee its quality, safety and efficacy for medical use, and needs to be free from pollutants and toxic substance.
It is naturally antibacterial and used to enhance the wound healing process, prevent infections, and reduce the risk of scarring. Medical grade honey can be used on a variety of wounds: infected wounds, cuts, abrasions, surgical wounds, diabetic wounds as well as 1st and 2nd degree burns, and it is effective even in the most severe cases.
The main advantage of medical honey is its strong wound healing properties. It is based on two main pillars: the pro-healing properties that enhance wound healing and its antimicrobial activity that resolve and prevent infections.
