Manuka Honey, the Natural Analgesic
Millions of people suffer from joint and muscle pain. Whether its arthritis, backaches, muscle stiffness or strains, many seek relief from pain on a daily basis. There are plenty of pain relief medications that can be purchased over-the-counter. It's just a matter of finding which one works best for you.
There is a special type of honey that comes from New Zealand called Manuka Honey that is gaining popularity as a natural ingredient in health care products. It has been reported that Manuka Honey is effective in treating symptoms such as eczema, infected wounds, ringworm, dandruff, ulcers, etc. However, scientists are now discovering that Manuka Honey contains anti-inflammatory properties that can be used as a natural pain reliever.
Manuka Honey has the ability to penetrate the surface of the skin, diffusing into the depth of skin tissue. This enables it to reach affected areas and immediately reduce inflammation of the muscles and joints. A New York-based company called Honeymark has developed a Pain Relief Cream containing Active Manuka Honey. This product eliminates the sticky mess of applying Manuka Honey directly on the skin. In addition to Manuka Honey, it contains other valuable ingredients that contribute to its effectiveness in relieving pain, such as Camphor, Menthol, Emu oil and Almond oil.
"When used as a topical analgesic, Manuka Honey starts working immediately by reducing inflammation and pain," says Frank Buonanotte, CEO of Honeymark International. "Our Pain Relief Cream provides a smooth application on the skin instead of dealing with the stickiness of Manuka Honey."
