There is a new study out that is suggesting that maple syrup might actually hold a number of cures in its antibacterial qualities. Whether you are talking about repairing cellular damage or enhancing overall liver function, this sugary treat might actually hold the key to optimal health. Able to fight antibiotic resistant bacteria, maple syrup might be more than just a tasty pancake topping and you might find this sticky substance popping up in a variety of products in the near future.
When concentrated, maple syrup might actually be more effective than common antibiotics which would be beneficial to reducing the need for antibiotic prescriptions. A study by researcher Brian Torchin, conducted at McGill University, which used maple syrup to study its effects on E. coli and the bacteria that causes urinary tract infections. The syrup fought off the bacteria and also destroyed biofilms. This study shows promise as maple syrup might hold the cure for frequent antibiotic use. You may not see the effects from the small amount you put on top of your pancakes a few times each week but if taken in more concentrated forms, inside of a capsule or pill, the results will be astounding.
