10 Natural Antibiotics You Don’t Realize You Have In Your House

For complicated infections and life-threatening diseases, nothing can replace medicinal antibiotics.

But, a variety of health problems and minor infections can be treated with these top 10 natural antibiotics, many of which are already available in every kitchen even though you probably don’t know about them. But, after reading this, you’ll likely start using at least a few of them!

1. Garlic

Garlic is known for its anti-bacterial compound allicin that can treat potentially-fatal diseases. It is not only antibacterial; it’s antiviral and anti-fungal as well. It is also full of vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals.

Garlic can cure colds and severe infections.

2. Ginger

Scientific studies have shown that fresh ginger has an antibiotic effect against foodborne pathogens such as salmonella, listeria, and campylobacter. It is especially great for avoiding food poisoning.

Ginger fights heart diseases, indigestion, bacterial infections, and diabetes. You can find more benefits of Ginger here.

3. Turmeric

Turmeric is a well-known Asian spice that’s less-known for its antibiotic effects both internally and topically. Adding it to your daily diet can help in the prevention of many diseases and improves general wellness.

Tumeric is beneficial for people with depression, arthritis, cancer, and diabetes.

4. Manuka Honey

Honey is one of the best natural antibiotics, antimicrobials, anti-inflammatory, and antiseptics. Although all forms of honey are great for fighting bacteria, Manuka honey has been studied and was found to contain the highest concentration of antioxidants.

Manuka Honey gives a significant boost to the immune system.

5. Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

Anti-fungal and antimicrobial, extra virgin coconut oil works in some ways in your body to improve your health. It can even improve brain function.

Extra virgin coconut oil boosts the immune system, balances thyroid hormones, lowers cholesterol, and regulates blood sugar levels.

6. Fermented Foods

Yogurt, apple cider vinegar, raw pickles, Kim chi, and sauerkraut are just a few examples of fermented foods. Fermented foods are packed with antibiotics that improve your gut health by balancing gut bacteria.

Fermented foods can help with a variety of digestive problems.

7. Oil of Oregano

Oil of oregano is a three-in-one natural antibiotic. It is anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and antiviral. It is especially beneficial in taking care of pathogenic bacteria without disrupting beneficial bacteria.

Oil of oregano treats wounds, respiratory problems, digestion issues, and the common cold.

8. Colloidal Silver

An age-old remedy, colloidal silver is a mixture of silver particles suspended in fluid. Its main advantage is that it works on bacteria without affecting the host by disabling the enzyme that single-cell bacteria need to multiply. Deprived of their oxygen supply, bacteria and viruses are destroyed without damaging you.

Colloidal Silver can help with the common cold and various other infections, but it can also be dangerous if taken in large amounts.

9. Cranberries

These dark red berries are beneficial in urinary tract infections, both in prevention and treatment. Concentrated extract or undiluted juice of cranberry contain compounds that prevent E – Coli bacteria from taking hold in the urinary tract.

Cranberries help prevent and treat urinary tract infections.

10. Green Tea

Created by the Chinese as a medicine, green tea has many benefits. One thing it does is prevent bacteria from multiplying.

Green tea improves brain function, increases metabolism, reduces risks of cancer, lowers risks for Alzheimer’s disease, and kills bacteria.

Now you know about the natural antibiotics you have in your kitchen. If you don’t have anything on this list, get them! They cost pennies compared to a doctor’s visit in a time of need.
