Natural Anti-Viral Slashes Sick Days
We’re a few months into the pandemic that’s taken over our lives.
I hope you and the people you care about are all healthy.
I get lots of questions from people about natural ways to help protect them from COVID-19.
Since this is a novel virus, there’s still a lot we have to learn about it.
But I do know how the body works. And I think it’s more important than ever to boost your immune system and give your body anti-viral support.
And when it comes to natural sources with strong anti-viral properties, there’s one that stands out from the rest.
It’s hard to beat the anti-viral properties of elderberries.
There are wild elderberries that grow near my house, and I pick them straight from the bush when they’re in season.
But not everyone is so fortunate, which is why I recommend the next best thing: taking an elderberry supplement.
Numerous studies over the years have shown that elderberry has direct anti-viral effects against the flu virus.
One showed that when people infected with influenza B were given elderberry at the first sign of infection, they were SYMPTOM FREE in just two days!
Compare that to SIX days in the placebo group.
Similar results were found when given as a treatment for influenza A.
A study published last year in the Journal of Functional Foods found out why.
The researchers found that elderberries actually stop the virus from infecting cells. It does this by BLOCKING viral proteins responsible for the virus attaching to and entering host cells.
In this way, it stops the virus at the earliest stage of infection.
But elderberries ALSO stopped the virus from replicating if it had already entered the cells.
This is significant, since targeting the virus at multiple stages of infection gives you the greatest chance of staying healthy.
Elderberries haven’t been tested against this SARS-CoV2 as far as I’m aware of.
But they support your immune system and have been shown effective against other viruses.
And elderberry supplements are very safe to take daily for prevention and immune system protection. And if you’re not feeling well, you can increase your dose.
