What Is Honey, and What Does It Contain?
Honey is made by bees and contains about 200 substances, including:
•Carbohydrates (mostly sugars)
•Amino acids (molecules that form the basis of proteins)
•Enzymes (molecules that speed up chemical reactions)
•Antioxidants (molecules that prevent cell damage from harmful molecules called free radicals)
Antibacterial Effect of Honey.
All types of honey are antibacterial, so honey may kill the bacteria associated with acne , P. acnes. Scientists believe that this effect of most kinds of honey is due primarily to its hydrogen peroxide content. Hydrogen peroxide is a strong antibacterial compound that sometimes is used to treat acne. However, one type of honey called manuka honey contains no hydrogen peroxide, but it still is antibacterial. Scientists theorize that antibacterial activity of manuka honey is due to its high acidity and high sugar content, as these conditions create an unsuitable environment for bacteria to thrive. But the bottom line is that all honey is antibacterial.
Other compounds in all types of honey also contribute to its antibacterial nature:
•Recent research found that a variety of molecules, including a protein called bee defensin-1 , “are distinct mechanisms involved in the bactericidal [bacteria-killi
ng] activity of honey.”
•Some studies suggest that propolis, a natural resin that bees use to build their hives, might possess antibacterial and antifungal effects as well as effects that regulate the immune system.
The antibacterial effects of honey are broad and affect many types of bacteria, which means there is a good chance that honey might also kill P. acnes.
