Natural “Antibiotic Booster” Found? (Wow!)

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

In 1928, Alexander Fleming discovered Penicillin. Since then, antibiotics have been used all over the world.

These super-drugs were a blessing to a society much in need of them. They saved countless lives and made dying from simple infections nearly obsolete.

But there’s also a flip side to this story.

We’ve overused the gift of antibiotics… and as a result, we’ve destroyed their effectiveness. In fact, many scientists agree: we are close to a post-antibiotic era.

Luckily, there’s a way to stay safe.

Researchers may have found a natural “antibiotic booster” that can help you recover.

*****

I’m talking about fish oil.

A group of Australian scientists have discovered that fish oil can STOP “superbugs” from becoming resistant to antibiotics.

Their study, published in international journal mBio, found that the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil infiltrate the bacteria’s cell wall, allowing antibiotics to invade the cell better.

Essentially, the fish oil is a “key” that unlocks the gate for the antibiotics!

You see, bacterial resistance is a normal and natural process. Every time we take an antibiotic to kill bacteria, some will survive. Those survivors are tough because the antibiotic didn’t kill them, and they then start to breed – creating a new family of bugs that are immune to that antibiotic.

Normally this isn’t a problem because your body can take care of the stragglers, or you can take another type of antibiotic.

But some bacteria become immune to two drugs, or three drugs, or four drugs.

That’s why we need an ally like fish oil to fight for us.

When choosing a fish oil supplement, make sure you get a balance of EPA and DHA fatty acids.  Start with 500mg combined and then work with your doctor on adding more as needed.
