They already know that the chestnut leaves tea is extremely beneficial, and they also say if you rub it directly on your skin, it will be able to treat many skin infections and reduce inflammation.
The group of people that were working with Cassandra Quave were able to discover 94 chemicals inside the chestnut leaves, and they were able to conclude that oleanane and ursine were the ones that are the most potent in the fight against the staph.
Another study that was performed on mice, in which they received the smallest dose of 50 micrograms of this extract, which was enough to cure them of MRSA skin lesions. The damage that was done to their red blood cells was reduced to almost zero and there was no more tissue damage.
