Ancient Plant DESTROYS Viruses
Earlier this week, I told you about a drug that could improve your chances of surviving if you have a severe case of COVID-19.
It was a breakthrough finding that has the potential to save thousands of lives.
But wouldn’t it be better not to contract COVID-19 in the first place?
Today, I’m going to tell you about a powerful plant that’s been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years to fight viral and bacterial infections—while simultaneously boosting your immune system.
It’s exactly what your body needs in uncertain times like these.
Panax ginseng has a good reputation in the alternative medicine world for increasing energy, boosting the immune system, and improving mood.
More recently, studies show that taking panax ginseng helps prevent people from contracting viruses like the common cold and flu and that it functions as a powerful anti-inflammatory.
It’s also been shown to help prevent respiratory syntactical virus (RSV) from infecting the lungs and breathing passages—a protective effect that could be especially valuable for COVID-19.
Ginseng can also kill specific harmful bacteria, including Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli, and Staphylococcus aureus.
And now, a study published in Phytotherapy Research has identified exactly what makes ginseng such a potent antimicrobial. Studies have shown that it has the following actions:
- It can weaken the ability of microbes to infect you by affecting the formation of biofilms and destroying mature biofilms.
- It can help break down the outer layer of bacteria, leading to cell death.
- It can help you fight against infections by stimulating your immune system and stopping microbes from killing your cells.
- It can help prevent microbes from becoming resistant to antibiotics.
If you’re interested in taking ginseng as an added layer of protection, you can get it from health food stores, or online retailers like Amazon.com.

COVID-19 is on everyone’s mind these days. But let’s not forget that it’s flu season, too. Seasonal flu can be especially dangerous for older people.
