Thanksgiving Berry DESTROYS Tough Infections
The biggest crisis in modern medicine isn’t finding a cure for cancer or curbing the heart disease epidemic.
It’s the looming threat of antibiotic-resistant infections.
Bacteria are figuring out how to outlive antibiotics… and creating a scary future where even the most minor infection could turn deadly.
But there’s good news….
Canadian researchers believe that an age-old tiny berry cure could help END this health crisis before it begins.
And it’s probably sitting on your Thanksgiving table right now!
Cranberries aren’t just your favorite Turkey Day side dish.
They’ve been the key to curing urinary tract infections for centuries.
With this in mind, scientists tested a cranberry extract against the drug-resistant bacteria linked to three different infections: UTIs, pneumonia, and gastroenteritis (a type of stomach infection).
For the study, researchers applied the cranberry extract to the bacteria in culture.
And the results were incredible! The extract made the bacteria more sensitive to antibiotics – meaning it helped eliminate antibiotic resistance.
First, it essentially poked holes in the bacteria, allowing the antibiotic to get into the bacteria and do its damage.
Second, it took out the defense system the bacteria use to eliminate the antibiotic.
Typically, bacteria treated in a lab with an antibiotic eventually develop resistance to it over time. But when the cranberry extract was added in with antibiotics… it prevented the bacteria from developing antibiotic resistance.
This gives us real hope that there’s a way to stop antibiotic resistance.
Of course, even as scientists desperately search for a solution, we all need to be doing our due diligence to not make the problem worse.
- Not taking an antibiotic unless it’s absolutely necessary
- Taking the full course of antibiotics when they are prescribed
- And only eating organic meat (so you’re not supporting an industry that pumps animals full of antibiotics).
And you can also boost your chances against antibiotic resitance by getting more cranberry in your diet. Just be sure to avoid sugary foods and drinks like canned sauces and juices.
Or take a cranberry supplement, which is available at your local natural health store.
