Bioactive compounds important for bacterial resistance found in green cardamom can be used to create new antimicrobial drugs against pathogens, and microbial recurrent infections.
A team of researchers has discovered a natural substance that easily eliminates microbes including bacteria, fungi, helminths, protozoa, and viruses in the human body.
The results of the study, published in the journal Frontiers in Microbiology, show that green cardamom (Elletaria cardamomum) contains bioactive compounds from which new antimicrobial drugs can be created.

Scientists claim that the plant contains a bacterial biofilm, which serves as a “shield” for bacteria and protects the body from infections.
In particular, we are talking about a layer of polymers that are located in the cellular matrix.
They provide the immune system protection against microorganisms.
The researchers came to the search for new antibiotics due to the fact that everyday bacteria are becoming more resistant to traditional drugs of this type.
