Raspberry juice cure for gastro

Raspberry juice can kill the virulent bacteria that causes outbreaks of gastroenteritis, research shows.

Experiments with pure raspberry juice and commercial cordials at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga have shown that a folk remedy commonly used by livestock owners has scientific validity, Heather Cavanagh said.

Dr Cavanagh and colleague Jenny Wilkinson from the school of biomedical sciences have found that a dash of concentrated raspberry juice kills E. coli, salmonella, mycobacterium and staphylococci.
