Tualang honey has antibacterial qualities that give it major wound healing potential. Tualang honey works on wounds and burns by easing the inflammation and fluid build-up in the wounded area while stimulating the growth of new cells.
A number of studies have been conducted into the wound healing abilities of tualang honey with the results proving largely positive. One study published in 2010 was conducted into the effects of tualang honey as a wound dressing in full thickness burn wounds that typically require skin graft surgery.
The results showed that wounds treated with tualang honey exhibited a very fast 32% decrease in wound size as early as the sixth day of treatment as well as a significant reduction on bacterial growth.
