A laboratory study in 2009 at the University of Porto, Portugal found that the in clove is active component called eugenol has proven to be one of the most effective antifungal agents yet discovered. The researchers found that eugenol showed inhibitory activity against almost all of the many fungal strains tested. They discovered that yeast cells were ruptured and even died due to the damage inflicted by eugenol, but even better news was that they discovered that eugenol almost entirely prevented the production of hyphae by candida albicans. (Hyphae are branching filaments that extend out from the cells of candida albicans and other fungi and can penetrate tissues in the body). The conclusion from the research was that eugenol has demonstrated a formidable antifungal activity against many fungal strains, including fluconazole-resistant yeast strains. Eugenol was even found to be effective against fungal strains that have become resistant to fluconazole (Diflucan), one of the most common and well-known antifungal drugs used in women’s yeast infections. Does your current anti-fungal product contains a powerful 4:1 clove extract?"
In the passage is says that eugenol will inhibit fungal strains but kill yeast cells? Do you think that sounds right?
What's interesting is that they sell eugenol on ebay as a dental analgesic antiseptic. The problem might be with some of these antifungal's is the effect that it will have on good bacteria as well?
