Marmite 'stops spread' of superbugs

“Love it or hate it, Marmite could stop the spread of MRSA”, reports The Daily Telegraph.

The news is based on the results of a laboratory study which found that vitamin B3, which is found in a number of food products such as Marmite, can increase the ‘germ-killing’ activity of a certain type of white blood cell known as neutrophils. This in turn could help prevent or treat infection with so-called superbugs such as MRSA (meticillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus).
