Manuka Honey: Boost your natural Immunity, Health & Well-being!

New Zealand is known for it's Manuka Honey (Manuka Honey can only come from the Manuka tree - a native to New Zealand), globally regarded for it's unique health properties and anti-bacterial benefits.
More recently three researchers at Oxford University have found that honey is a better treatment for upper respiratory tract infections (URTIs) than traditional remedies. In the research paper BMJ Evidence-based Medicine, Hibatullah Abuelgasim, Charlotte Albury, and Joseph Lee describe their study of the results of multiple clinical trials that involved testing of treatments for upper respiratory tract infections (URTIs) and what they learned from the data.

Below is a Summary of this research paper:
What is already known about this subject?
Honey is a well known lay therapy for symptoms of upper respiratory tract infections (URTIs); other medications for URTIs are ineffective and can have harmful side effects
The use of antibiotics for URTIs is a particular problem, because they are ineffective, and contribute to antimicrobial resistance
A Cochrane systematic review found that honey can improve cough in children; honey has not been systematically reviewed for other URTI symptoms, or in other patient groups
What are the new findings?
Honey is more effective than usual care alternatives for improving URTI symptoms, particularly cough frequency and cough severity
Comparisons with placebo are more limited, and require more high quality, placebo controlled trials
How might it impact on clinical practice in the foreseeable future?
There are currently very few effective options that clinicians can prescribe for URTIs
Honey can be used as an alternative to antibiotics by clinicians who wish to offer treatment for URTIs, which may help to combat antimicrobial resistance
