Nature’s 86 is a powerful and natural antimicrobial oil used to kill microorganisms that can cause or lead to infection.
What is an antimicrobial?
There are 2 kinds of medicine that kill microorganisms and bacteria, antimicrobials and antibiotics. While all antibiotics are antimicrobial, not all antimicrobials are antibiotics. The benefit of using a natural antimicrobial, such as Nature’s 86, is that it’s a topical treatment. When introducing Nature’s 86 to a surface wound, it kills microorganisms on contact without the worry of having your body build a resistance. Since it is a localized treatment used to fight a specific injury, it does not have the harsh effects of taking an antibiotic, which can cause liver damage, upset stomach, diarrhea and rash (to name a few).
The ingredients in Nature’s 86 offers natural antimicrobial properties.
Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) – DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid that is a primary structural component of the human brain, cerebral cortex, skin, and retina. When applied to the skin, laboratory results have shown it to be a very powerful antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agent. It is well documented in clinical testing to greatly accelerate the healing process.
Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) – This Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid is well known in science as a very potent and safe topical antibacterial agent. In addition, it ranks very high as an anti-inflammatory ingredient.
Lauric Acid – Clinical results indicate that lauric acid exerts the inhibitory effect on the growth of skin bacteria such as P. acnes, S. aureus, and S. epidermidis at a concentration 15 times lower than that of BPO, a frequently used oxidizing agent in acne treatment. Lauric Acid is highly sought after as an antibacterial agent effective on many different forms of bacteria.
Alpha-linolenic Acid – It is one of two essential fatty acids, so called because they are necessary for health and cannot be produced within the human body. Not only does Alpha-linolenic acid have antimicrobial properties, it is also an anti-inflammatory.
Eicosenoic Acid – Eicosenoic acid is a monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acid. It is a dual purpose fatty acid. While it is known as a strong antimicrobial and antibacterial agent, it also contains significant anti-inflammatory properties.
Nature’s 86 contains all of the above ingredients plus other saturated and unsaturated fatty acids making up a unique blend of extremely strong and active Triglycerides.
