The Buzz About Medical Honey

January 31, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Ancient Egyptians treated injuries with honey, and World War II doctors dressed wounds with it. Now honey is back on the medical scene, thanks to a company called Honeymark International. Honeymark makes creams, solutions, lotions and other products that treat conditions such as Eczema, Arthritis, wounds, nail fungus, etc.

"The view about honey is changing dramatically," says Frank Buonanotte, CEO of Honeymark International. "At one point in the near future, people will be viewing honey as being more than just something we put in our tea. What most people don't know is that honey can be extremely effective in dressing wounds and relieving certain skin conditions."

Honeymark uses a particular type of honey known as "Manuka Honey" that is found primarily in the New Zealand region. This type of honey is used because it seems to possess more healing properties than other types of honey. Extensive research on the healing power of Manuka Honey has been done by the University of Waikato in New Zealand. Their findings can be found at

Honeymark's Wound Relief Lotion is an extremely effective dressing for many different types of wounds. Business Communications estimates that the advanced wound-care market will hit $2.8 billion in 2008. It will be up to Honeymark to make sure the idea sticks.
