Do you want to have healthy teeth and gums without using harsh chemicals or expensive treatments? If so, you might be interested in learning about the amazing benefits of raw manuka honey for your oral health.

Raw manuka honey is a special type of honey that comes from New Zealand, where bees collect nectar from the manuka bush. This honey has a high level of methylglyoxal (MGO), a natural compound that gives it antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Unlike regular honey, which can cause tooth decay and cavities, raw manuka honey can actually help prevent and treat dental problems. Here are some of the ways that raw manuka honey can protect your teeth:

- It reduces plaque and gingivitis. A study by the University of Otago's School of Dentistry found that manuka honey with an MGO level of 500+ could significantly reduce dental plaque and clinical signs of gingivitis, such as bleeding and inflammation of the gums.

- It fights bacteria and infections. Raw manuka honey can kill harmful bacteria that cause tooth decay, gum disease, bad breath, and oral thrush. It can also help heal mouth ulcers, sores, and wounds.

- It nourishes and strengthens the teeth. Raw manuka honey is rich in minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, and enzymes that support the health and development of the teeth. It can also help remineralize the enamel and prevent tooth sensitivity.

How to use raw manuka honey for your oral health

To enjoy the benefits of raw manuka honey for your teeth, you only need to consume one teaspoon a day. You can eat it straight from the jar, spread it on toast, add it to your tea or smoothie, or mix it with water and drink it.

However, make sure you use only high-quality raw manuka honey that has been tested and certified for its MGO level, like our Certified Manuka Honey MGO950+. You can find such honey at Happy Beekeeping Limited, where we offer premium raw manuka honey sourced from New Zealand's pristine wilderness.
