Recently, the National Institutes of Health revealed they had been battling an antiobiotic-resistant “superbug” infection at their hospital in Bathesda, Maryland since last year. Just within the past 2 weeks, the seventh person—a young boy— died from the infection. During the battle against this infection, the hospital has done everything from seal off rooms to douse them with airborne disinfectant, all to no avail. But research shows something as simple as vitamin B3 could be the answer.
Anti-biotic infections are resistant to traditional antibiotic medicines. In other words, your conventional medical doctors can’t figure out how to kill these infections. They’ve been created, in part, by the massive dependence on antibiotics and have evolved, in self-preservation, to be nearly indestructible.
Vitamin B3 a Natural Solution for Superbug Infections
Nicotinamide (NAM), more commonly known as vitamin B3, may be the answer. According to researchers from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and Linus Pauling Institute, high doses of this vitamin could be effective in killing staph and other tough infections.
The work, which was published in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, says that B3 is capable of increasing immune function by 1,000. This means it helps the body fight the infection naturally.
According to Natural News:
“NAM is not just effective against S. aureus, though. Several other virulent pathogens, including human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), also seem to respond favorably to NAM’s dramatic immune-boosting capacity. By bolstering the immune system’s natural defenses, NAM appears to facilitate the destruction and elimination of a host of deadly pathogens and viruses.”
Another good thing about vitamin B3—it doesn’t destroy healthy bacteria like antibiotics do. Often times, antibiotics can make us sick. While they work to (hopefully) kill the infection in our bodies, they also kill off other kinds of bacteria, including those that are crucial for optimal digestive function. This leads to digestive issues and commonly yeast infections. The depletion of this beneficial bacteria could also result in mental disorders and obesity.
“This could give us a new way to treat staph infections that can be deadly,” said researcher Adrian Gombart about the study. “It’s a way to tap into the power of the innate immune system and stimulate it to provide a more powerful and natural immune response.”
As the NIH battles the antibiotic resistant superbug at their Health Clinical Center by routinely swabbing all patients with a rectal swabs, and ripping out plumbing—grasping for a way to win over the invasive and deadly illness, the answer could be as simple as a mega-dose of a natural-occurring vitamin.
