Two Foods supercharge normally ineffective antibiotics

We look at two separate studies:

Cranberries join forces with antibiotics to fight bacteria

“But when we simultaneously treated the bacteria with an antibiotic and the cranberry extract, no resistance developed.”

Manuka honey to kill drug-resistant bacteria found in cystic fibrosis infections

The results showed that it was effective in killing antimicrobial resistant bacteria by 39% compared to 29% for antibiotics, whilst improving the activity of some antibiotics that were unable to function effectively by themselves, honey and antibiotics combined killed 90% of the bacteria tested.

About Post Author

Ralph Turchiano

I have a strong affinity for the sciences which led me to create my sites. My compulsion for the past decade has been reviewing literally every peer-reviewed research article. Which can easily be validated by following my posts. To me, science is where the real news is, as it will mold our destiny beyond that of politics or economics. 😉 Please feel free to e-mail: 161803p314159@gmail.com
