WALLOP this drug-defying nightmare bug with a crazy ‘bark trick’

First, he’ll tell you he’s sorry…

And then he’ll utter SIX of the scariest words you ever want to hear from your doc.

“There’s nothing more we can do.”

He says they’ve tried everything… but the MRSA infection you caught is just UNTREATABLE.

You’re not alone…

This multi-drug resistant, gram-negative pathogen has become a LEADING culprit of infection in people around the world…

Causing 10X more infections than ALL other superbugs COMBINED!

Well, your doc may have tried every DRUG… but I GUARANTEE he hasn’t tried THIS superbug buster.

BLUDGEON those superbugs!

Hercules’ club (Zanthoxylum clava-herculis) is a shrub native to the American Southeast, sometimes referred to as the “toothache tree” by the Native Americans and early settlers who used its bark for that purpose.

The spikes on its thick branches make it resemble Hercules’ weapon of choice in Greek mythology

And funny enough, it’s just what you need to BEAT the heck out of MRSA (methicillin‐resistant Staphylococcus aureus).

You see, Hercules’ club is a MAJOR source of a powerful alkaloid chemical known as chelerythrine.

According to a 2017 review out of Malaysia, it exerts its antibacterial power in two ways,


  1. bacterial cell division, which means the bugs can’t MULTIPLY, and
  2. nucleic acid synthesis.

The second action I just mentioned SABOTAGES the superbugs’ genetic material, as “nucleic acid” is the “NA” in DNA and RNA.

That helps make the bacteria MORE SUSCEPTIBLE to antibiotic treatments – because PREVENTS the information encoded on antibiotic-resistant genes from getting translated into working proteins.

If those drug-resistant genes aren’t expressed… then antibiotics can FINALLY do their job… and KILL the bacteria.

Think of it this way…

Chelerythrine helps the bugs “forget” how to resist drugs… or even that they ever resisted them in the first place… on a GENETIC level.

But there’s something else…

Because as a 2012 study out of Italy demonstrated, this “chemical warfare” is ALSO effective against superbug biofilms – those protective layers they wrap themselves up in to keep ANYTHING and EVERYTHING from busting through their cell walls.

Turns out that chelerythrine can SLAM THE BRAKES on biofilm formation from the very start!

Look for Hercules’ club in supplement form as a liquid extract, sometimes labeled by its other nickname, “southern prickly ash bark.”

Check with your doc to make sure it won’t interfere with anything else you’re taking.

To showing no mercy on MRSA,
