Top 6 Natural Virus Fighters
The coronavirus pandemic has brought out a lot of good in people.
Unfortunately, it’s brought a lot of scammers out of the woodwork, too.
There are folks online promoting all sorts of bogus cures and phony “virus killers.”
I can’t believe some of the stuff I’m seeing out there…
So I decided to put together a list of six natural remedies that have good science behind them when it comes to helping your body fight viruses.
Now, let me be clear — nothing on this list has been tested against this new COVID-19 virus.
But seeing what makes my list (and what doesn’t) can help you separate fact from fiction.
And you may want to keep some of these natural antivirals around as part of your year-round health plan.
Oregano oil contains a compound called carvacrol that has been shown to have antiviral properties.
Interestingly, oregano doesn’t actually kill viruses. Instead, it acts like Teflon by preventing viruses from sticking to your cells.
And one double-blind study showed that an oregano throat spray was beneficial for upper respiratory infections.
You’ve probably never heard of this one, but astragulus is actually very popular in Traditional Chinese Medicine—and is also one of the most researched plants with antiviral properties.
This particular plant has specifically been shown to inhibit avian flu viruses.
A lot of research has been done on the antiviral properties of elderberry. In fact, one study showed that it’s effective against 10 different influenza strains.
A closer look at how elderberry works showed that it helps prevent the flu virus from entering and replicating in human cells.
Upper respiratory infections expose the lungs to massive amounts of oxidative stress. NAC (N-acetyl cysteine) increases glutathione in the body, which reduces oxidative stress and can help you recover more quickly.
A review of 148 studies showed that vitamin C can help prevent or alleviate infections caused by bacteria and viruses.
Vitamin C is essential for a strong, healthy immune system.
In addition to boosting your immune system, vitamin D helps protect your lungs from upper respiratory viruses by boosting your body’s mucosal defenses.
This is critical, since the mucosa is the main site where viruses gain entry to the body.
