Licorice root (Glycyrrhiza glabra): Licorice root has been used to prevent and remedy infections, fevers and inflammation. Leptotaenia (Leptotaenia dissecta Nutt.): Available in both capsules or as a liquid extract, leptotaenia is an herb known to be useful in treating pneumonia, flu, colds, and bronchitis, as well as viruses such as Herpes simplex I and II and hepatitis C. Isatidis may also be a good anti-bacterial agent. Isatidis may also be a good anti-bacterial agent. They are steeped in water for several hours in a tightly sealed jar. Isatidis may be a remedy for any virus but appears to be especially good for hepatitis, because it helps reduce both swelling and liver inflammation.

Isatidis (Isatis tinctora): This herb is one of the best-known traditional Chinese medicine antiviral herbs. Honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica) is often used in China to treat bacterial and viral conditions. Honeysuckle (Lonicera japonica) is often used in China to treat bacterial and viral conditions. One study evaluated polyphenolic compound catechins ((-)-epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), (-)-epicatechin gallate (ECG) and (-)-epigallocatechin (EGC)) from green tea for their ability to inhibit influenza virus replication in cell culture and for potential direct virucidal effect. Green tea: Certain constituents called catechins found in green tea have been studied for their ability to inhibit influenza virus replication and their direct virucidal effects. Further studies are needed before any firm recommendations can be made. Experts recommend taking 2 capsules daily for prevention of infection.

Experts claim it is most effective in its natural form, and they recommend juicing and drinking several cloves as needed. It is often mixed with honeysuckle and sometimes lemon balm and/or ginger as a tea. A constituent present in black elderberry (with actions similar to neuraminidase inhibitors oseltamivir and zanamivir) prevents the spread of virions from infected cells to new cells. Root extracts of echinacea are believed to boost interferon levels, vital to the body’s defenses. This prevents germs from spreading and infecting other body tissues. It is a commonly used herb in traditional Chinese medicine and is used as a component of many immune-supporting formulas, whether prepared as a sliced and boiled herb in food preparations, in extracts, or in capsules. One of the things I like about elderberry is that it possesses a quality many other herbs don’t: most of the elderberry extracts and tinctures you find taste great!

Both studies found significant improvements in reduction of duration of influenza symptoms (1-2.5 days sooner, depending on particular symptom, p< 0.01). The Chinese and Thai herbal medicine systems have also incorporated this herb, valued mostly for its "bitter" properties as a treatment for digestive problems and a variety of febrile illnesses. These preparations may also aid in disrupting the life cycle of the virus and inhibit further replication and infection of healthy cells. Release: After many copies of the virus have been made, they are released from the host cell, often killing the host cell in the process. Complementary and alternative medicine practitioners often recommend a combination of herbal supplements, such as zinc, selenium, and echinacea. Echinacea purpura has also gained mainstream acceptance for use in preventing and reducing the severity of the common cold, but scientific research has yet to provide conclusive evidence regarding efficacy. Herbal preparations that strengthen the immune system may help the body fight off invading viruses that could otherwise cause infection, and are of particular interest to the scientific community. Certain medications may shorten the duration of an illness caused by a virus, or may decrease the severity of symptoms, but they are generally expensive and not readily available.
