Rainforest honey is also known as Tualang honey. An exotic honey, produced in completely different conditions than the regular bee honey. What it is more interesting is that plenty of scientists say its properties are similar to the well-researched manuka honey, even more effective against some gram-negative bacterial strains.
It was proved to have antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antimutagenic, antitumor, and antidiabetic properties, of course in addition to wound-healing attributes. Recent studies pointed out its effectiveness in the treatment of breast cancer and leukemia.
Highly recommended in postmenopausal state Tualang honey is considered by some to be the natural equivalent of hormone replacement therapy.
