Ancient Drink DESTROYS Killer Bacteria
Superbugs are a serious health threat.
They infect over 2 million people—and kill thousands—every year.
And it’s going to get a lot worse before it gets better.
As bacteria become resistant to mainstream’s best antibiotics, researchers are searching for a solution…
I don’t care what form it comes in… as long as it’s safe and it works.
Researchers have recently found a new way to make existing drugs more effective—and it’s found in an ancient drink.
The health benefits of green tea are fairly well-known by now—especially when it comes to boosting your brain health.
The compound in green specifically credited for its powers is called EGCG.
But in addition to boosting your mental capacity, researchers have found that EGCG could also solve the antibiotic crisis.
In a study published in the Journal of Medical Microbiology, researchers tested the combination of EGCG and the antibiotic aztreonam against the bacterium P. aerugnosa.
This bacterium can cause infections of the skin, blood, respiratory tract, and urinary tract, and the World Health Organization has classified it as “a critical threat to human health.”
Aztreonam is one of the main antibiotics used to treat P. aerugnosa, but this bacterium is becoming increasingly resistant to this and other drugs.
But in a lab culture, combining EGCG with aztreonam changed everything.
Simply adding this component of green tea dramatically reduced the number of clinical multidrug strains of P. aerugnosa.
An animal model then confirmed that the combination of EGCG and aztreonam was more effective than either when it was used alone.
Why such dramatic results?
The researchers believe it’s because EGCG bores holes in the P. aerugnosa, allowing more of the drug to get into the bacterium and boosting its effectiveness.
Does this mean you can kill drug-resistant bacteria by simply drinking green tea?
What it does mean is that green tea is yet another natural source that the medical community could use to help prevent a looming health crisis.
And in the meantime, you can continue drinking green tea for all of its other proven health benefits.
