Can drinking green tea reduce antibiotic resistance?
Closed

Green tea can fight antibiotic resistance bacteria
We all know that Green tea is loaded with antioxidants, but a new study has revealed that it has the potential to fight antibiotic resistance bacteria too! As per a recent study, a naturally occurring antioxidant commonly found in green tea can help eliminate antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

The research reports
The research report was published in the Journal of Medical Microbiology in which the researchers found that epigallocatechin (EGCG) can restore the activity of aztreonam, an antibiotic commonly used to treat infections caused by the bacterial pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa. P. aeruginosa is linked with serious respiratory tract and bloodstream infections and has become resistant to many major classes of antibiotics over the years. Currently, a combination of antibiotics is used to fight P. aeruginosa.

Difficult to treat
Unfortunately, it has become extremely difficult to treat this strain of bacteria. They have become resistant to the last-line antibiotics. To gauge the synergy of EGCG and aztreonam, scientists conducted in vitro tests to find out how they interacted with the bacterial pathogen individually and in combination. The team found that the combination of aztreonam and EGCG was significantly more effective at reducing P. aeruginosa numbers than either agent alone.
