Hydrogen peroxide is produced in a slow release process by the enzyme glucose oxidase found in honey. This enzyme is activated only when honey is diluted by body fluids.It requires oxygen to get activated which is possible when acidic honey is neutralized by body fluids.Formation of hydrogen peroxide can't take place when glucose oxidase is destroyed by protein-digesting enymes found in wound fluids and also when honey is exposed to light and heat.

Antibiotic activity of honey is due to presence of Methhylglyoxal(MGO).

Sidr honey used regularly especially empty stomach  builds up resistance against minor ailments like seasonal infections to serious and life threatening conditions such as malignancies,by strengthening immune system.

 Hydrogen peroxide,relative acidic pH of honey and its methylglyoxal(MGO) content make it a natural antiseptic,antibiotic,antiviral.antifungal,and antibacterial agent with no adverse effects.--
