Did You Know that Raw Manuka Honey Helps Protect Your Teeth?

Updated: Oct 1, 2019

While on trade food shows, and in Farmers Markets offering free tasting samples, a few people mention that they do not want to try the honey as they have “just brushed their teeth “. One of our customers said he was worried about eating too much honey as he did not want to have too much sugar on his teeth. I let him know that raw Manuka was actually a benefit and one tsp of Raw Manuka Honey a day can protect against infectious disease and tooth decay! and it is backed up by science. He suggested putting it on our website as lots of people may not not know that. So here we are.


Gum diseases such as gingivitis are becoming the norm for the majority of the population. Unfortunately, we have come to accept that poor dental health is somehow part of the ageing process. Furthermore, contrary to the belief, brushing teeth multiple times will not make teeth any healthier, according to [1]. Excessive brushing can contribute to receding gums, which is the primary cause of developing gum diseases such as gingivitis.

Excessive Brushing can contribute to receding gums

However, there are supernatural food such as New Zealand Raw Manuka Honey, if included into a daily diet, has the potential to protect from tooth problems. The concept of honey for healthy teeth may appear contradictory.

Researchers at School of Dentistry, University of Otago, New Zealand [2] investigated whether or not New Zealand Manuka Honey with an antibacterial activity such MGO 500+ could be used to reduce dental plaque and clinical levels of gingivitis. Despite popular belief, brushing teeth multiple times throughout the day will not lead to better teeth health. Excessive brushing can harm the teeth and can contribute to receding gums.

New Zealand Raw Manuka honey is one of the most sought after and one of the most potent honeys in the world, in medicinal applications and nutritive values. Because of its antimicrobial property, introducing Raw Manuka honey, into a daily diet, will help contribute significantly to healthy teeth.

One tsp of Manuka honey every day is a good insurance policy to anyone looking to protect against infections.
