The primary constituent in cloves is eugenol, a potent antibacterial agent. In cellular studies, cloves demonstrated inhibition via increased membrane permeability and oxidative stress against Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Staphylococcus aureus.[1] Influencing the permeability of bacterial membranes increases both their sensitivity to antibiotics and apoptosis. Preliminary in vivo studies demonstrate antiulcer activity (for example, ethanol-induced), with the possible mechanism being an increase in gastric mucous secretion.[2][3]
