Does Manuka Honey help against cancer?
Manuka honey may help prevent infections and promote wound healing when used externally. However, it has not been found to be effective in reducing cancer treatment-related side effects such as inflammation or sores in the mouth or throat. Larger studies are needed. There is no conclusive evidence of medicinal or dietary value in using mānuka honey other than as a sweetener. The anticancer potential of manuka honey has not been investigated yet, although a few studies evaluated it to relieve treatment-related side effects. Manuka was not effective in alleviating radiation-induced oral mucositis, although one study reported a reduction in bacterial infections. It was also not superior to best supportive care to prevent radiation esophagitis but did appear to reduce opioid use at 4 weeks. Larger studies are needed to determine the therapeutic value of manuka. Flavonoids present in manuka demonstrated anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and anticancer properties.
