Extensive studies have found that Turmeric may be the most effective natural antibiotic in existence. Why? Because it has shown to:

  • improve digestion
  • fight bad bacteria in the GUT whilst increasing good bacteria
  • clean the colon systems which keeps everything moving along healthily
  • boost antioxidant levels
  • decrease inflammation around the body
  • modulate the immune cells
  • enhances the body’s natural antibody responses

Since oxidative stress and inflammation often go hand in hand with bacterial infections, and as turmeric is proven to be an established anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory, this makes it an ideal candidate to use in combination therapies against bacterial pathogens of humans.
