(Natural News) A recent study from the Beckman Research Institute in California revealed a surprising link between gut bacteria and inflammation. The findings, which were published in the journal Nature Communications, identified an envelope molecule from Bacteroides fragilis to have anti-inflammatory properties. According to the researchers, the molecule – which they called capsular polysaccharide A (PSA) – promotes protective and anti-inflammatory responses during a viral infection. In particular, it can be used to protect the body against herpes simplex encephalitis (HSE), a severe form of brain inflammation with a 70 percent mortality rate without treatment. →
