Press Release Summary: A special type of honey has been found to heal wounds
infected by MRSA and other antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria.

Press Release Body: Amid growing concern over drug-resistant superbugs and
non-healing wounds that endanger diabetes patients, nature\'s original antibiotic,
honey, is making a comeback. More than 4,000 years after Egyptians began applying
honey to wounds, Honeymark International, a Long Island-based company that makes
medicated creams and lotions, began using honey in its products as a powerful
antibacterial healing agent. Honey was used to treat wounds and burns for years
before antibiotics were invented. Doctors assumed antibiotics worked better but
recent studies are proving otherwise.

Honeymark uses a particular type of honey called Manuka Honey which is an extremely
potent type of honey that experts say kills germs and speeds healing. Also called
Leptospermum honey, Manuka Honey comes from the hives of bees that collect nectar
from flowers that grow on the Manuka Bush which is indigenous to New Zealand.

Since bacteria has the ability to mutate and become resistant to antibiotics, which
are becoming ineffective at fighting pathogens, Manuka Honey is a valuable resource
in today\'s medical world. Manuka Honey has also been found to reduce inflammation
and can eliminate the foul odors associated with infected wounds. Health care
products containing Manuka Honey have been gaining popularity overseas, fueled by
scientific reports on their medical benefits. Regular honey can have mild medicinal
benefits. However, Manuka Honey is far more potent according to recent studies.
Manuka Honey can also prevent the dangerous drug-resistant staph infection known as
MRSA from infecting open wounds.

\"It\'s been used on wounds where nothing else will work,\" says Frank Buonanotte, CEO
of Honeymark International. \"Manuka Honey can kill the toughest bacteria even when
diluted 10 times. There\'s actually more clinical evidence for honey in wound
treatment than for any pharmaceutical products,\" Buonanotte said.

In addition to wound care, Honeymark has developed Manuka Honey products that are
effective in treating eczema, psoriasis, arthritis, ringworm, athlete\'s foot, nail
fungus, etc. Honeymark intends to introduce new honey-based products later this
year. For more information or to purchase their products, call 1-866-427-7329 or
