An antimicrobial is an agent that kills microorganisms or stops their growth. Microorganisms, or microbes, may exist in single-celled form or in a colony of cells, and are extremely diverse. In and on the human body microorganisms make up the human microbiota including the essential gut flora and often the pathogens responsible for many infectious diseases.
Recent research findings have identified Kisolite to have potential as a natural mineral antimicrobial.
Of great interest is the effectiveness of this mineral against multi-drug resistant (MDR) strains of pathogenic microbes, also known as Super Bugs.
Company sponsored research resulted in the publication of a Paper in mBio entitled “Kisameet Clay Exhibits Potent Antibacterial Activity against the Eskape Pathogens”.
The ESKAPE (Enterococcus faecium, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Acinetobacter baumannii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Enterobacter species) pathogens cause an increasing number of nosocomial infections worldwide since they escape the inhibitory effect of the available antibiotics and the immune response.
Kisolite® has substantial potential as a natural mineral solution to the serious global health issue commonly known as Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) for both humans and animals.
