Searching For A Natural, Organic Anti-Bacterial?

Did you cut your hand? Feeling a little sick? When your body fights an infection or an illness, it’s battling against one-of-two things, a virus or a bacteria. For example, strep throat occurs when the streptococcus pyogene bacteria infects the lymph nodes in and around the throat. If you contract the bacteria, you will most likely need to see a doctor for antibiotic medication to remedy the illness. However, in some lesser cases of bacterial infection, you can prevent the infection from becoming too severe or even spreading through your body with anti-bacterial treatment.

In this post, we’ll share six terpenes that have been shown in various studies as antibacterial agents against bacteria. Ready to shop terpenes for sale now? We offer isolates and profile strains to fit yo!

It’s important to understand that bacteria and viruses are different. Bacteria are single-celled microorganisms that can cause infections like strep throat, tuberculosis, or UTIs. Antibiotics can be used to fight bacterial infections, but they are ineffective against viruses. In any case, anti-bacterial agents directly interfere with the growth and spread of bacteria.
