Honey reduces the risk of dental plaque and disease

Honey can offer both a pleasant taste and improved oral health if consumed in moderation. “All types of honey contain a substance called hydrogen peroxide, which has an antibacterial effect inhibiting bacteria associated with dental plaque and gum disease. Manuka honey contains much higher levels of this substance, as well as another beneficial substance called methylgloxal, or MGO for short,” says family physician Tatyana Zakharova.

Honey also has an antibacterial effect, and manuka honey has the strongest antibacterial effect overall compared to other honey. As studies prove, manuka honey shows a stronger antibacterial effect against three strains of oral disease-causing bacteria compared to regular non-manuka honey.

One or two teaspoons a day should be enough. Manuka honey can pretty much be used like other types of honey in such products as yogurt, pudding, cereal or porridge, or added to cold and hot drinks.
