Study: Maple Syrup Extract May Boost Antibiotic Activity
At the first stage of the study, lead researcher Natalie Tufenkji separated the sugar and water from the syrup's phenolic compounds and exposed with several bacterial strains that cause various disease. However, she didn’t find any noticeable changes. But when she mixed the phenolic extract with commonly used antibiotics then the antimicrobial potency hiked up.
Dr. Tufenkji explained that the syrup extract actually increases the permeability of bacteria that helps antibiotics to gain access to the interior of cells.
