Garlic Stops MRSA Deaths

June 16, 2008 | 6,205 views

Researchers have found a new use for garlic -- killing the antibiotic-resistance disease known as MRSA.

Even patients who have suffered for years with infected wounds have been cleared after a course of garlic pills and creams during recent trial tests. So far, more than 250 people have been successfully treated.

Garlic’s healing properties come from a quickly-degrading compound called allicin, which is created only when the clove is damaged and two compounds within the plant come together. New research has focused on a form of stabilized allicin.
