Herbal extracts may beat antibiotics for Lyme
Updated: Feb 27
Lyme disease, caused by Borrelia burgdorferi, and multiple closely related Borrelia species,
7 botanicals beat antibiotics for persister lyme.
"Among them, 7 natural product extracts at 1% were found to have good activity against the stationary phase B. burgdorferi culture compared to the control antibiotics doxycycline (antibiotic) and cefuroxime (antibiotic).
These active botanicals include Cryptolepis sanguinolenta, Juglans nigra (Black walnut), Polygonum cuspidatum (Japanese knotweed), Artemisia annua (Sweet wormwood), Uncaria tomentosa (Cat's claw), Cistus incanus, and Scutellaria baicalensis (Chinese skullcap).
In subculture studies, only 1% Cryptolepis sanguinolenta extract caused complete eradication, while doxycycline and cefuroxime and other active herbs could not eradicate Borrelia burgdorferi"
