According to iVillage Health:

...Coffee and tea have a pile of health benefits,including antimicrobial properties that may help wipe out drug-resistant MRSA. Researchers had already known that when applied topically, coffee and tea have germ-killing instincts, so for this study, scientists wanted to find out if coffee and tea offered assassin-like properties when taken orally.

Hi cmkarla -

I used to drink coffee and was a great fan of tea, especially. I haven't used them to kill bacteria in my stomach, but one can try and see what results. Myself, after 30 years of using it, I use vitamin C crystals, 1/4 tsp. to a half-glass of water, every 2 1/2 to 3 hours. If there is a bad infection, anything up to 1 tablespoon w/1 glass water every 3 - 4 hours until you feel the infection is gone. Vir. C is the body's most powerful antibiotic. I learned this years ago from reading Adelle Davis, the great nutritionist who was the first to talk about using natural foods to cure people. The vitamin C crystals can be bought or ordered online.
