Viruses cause familiar infectious diseases such as the common cold, flu, warts, HPV, chicken pox, shingles, norovirus, West Nile, measles and other deadly infections like HIV, Zika, Small pox and Ebola.
They are microscopic biological agents that reproduce inside the cells of living hosts. When infected by a virus, a host cell is forced to produce thousands of identical copies of the original virus at an extraordinary rate.
After contacting a host cell, a virus will insert genetic material into the host and take over that host's functions. The virus continues to reproduce, but it produces more viral protein and genetic material instead of the usual cellular products and is classified also as a parasite. When you get a virus, you may not always get sick from it. Your immune system may be able to fight it off and sometimes your body needs help.
There are numerous natural anti-viral supplements that can help prevent, diminish and limit the duration of viral infections.
Colloidal Silver (10ppm) (American Biotec) is made from pure water and silver, using electrolysis. It is microscopic-sized solid silver particles suspended in the water. The microscopic silver particles can more easily penetrate and travel throughout the body. Colloidal Silver works as a catalyst, disabling the enzyme that all one celled viruses, bacteria and fungi use for their oxygen metabolism. The presence of Colloidal Silver near a virus, fungus, bacterium or any other single celled pathogen, disables its oxygen metabolism enzyme, its chemical lung, so to say. Within a few minutes, the pathogen suffocates and dies and is cleared out of the body by the immune system. Colloidal Silver is of no harm to human enzymes or any part of the human body chemistry. It can be taken daily internally or used externally as a disinfectant and benefits last for 2-3 hours. Safe for all ages and does not interfere with any medications. Add 2 teaspoons to 8 oz. water and sip throughout the day & then replenish as needed.
Anti-V with Echinamide (Natural Factors) capsules contain immune boosting and potent anti-viral herbs to help your immune system fight off viruses. Herbs include triple standardized Echinacea purpurea, Lomatium dissectum, Astragalus membranaceus, Reishi mushroom, and licorice. (should not be used by people with auto-immune disorders or transplants)
Olive Leaf Extract (Natural Factors) has been clinically proven as an immune booster beneficial in the treatment of conditions caused by, or associated with, a virus, retrovirus, bacterium or protozoan. Studies have shown it to have a unique anti-viral mechanism. Oleuropein, the key nutrient, is most concentrated in the leaves than any other part of the plant. Olive leaf’s broad killing power includes an ability to interfere with critical amino acid production for viruses. It also has an ability to contain viral infection and/or spread by inactivating viruses, by preventing virus shredding, budding or assembly at the cell membrane. Olive leaf extract can directly penetrate infected cells and stop viral replication. (should not be used by people with auto-immune disorders or transplants)
According to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer website “Olive leaf extract has been shown to be effective against the following microorganisms: E. coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, S. aureus, K. pneumoniae, Trichophyton mentagrophytes, Microsporum canis, T. rubrum and Candida albicans.
Other benefits of Olive leaf extract include protection for neurodegenerative diseases. Oxidative stress occurs more gradually in neurodegenerative diseases. However, the effects add up over a lifetime, producing inflammation and other changes that result in the accumulation of abnormal proteins that interfere with brain function and kill neurons.
Kyolic Immune Formula 103 (Kyolic) This combination of vitamins, mushrooms and herbs helps to support healthy immune function.* Aged Garlic Extract™ [220 mg]; Premium Mushroom Complex [75 mg]; Vitamin C [52.5 mg]; Astragalus Extract [50 mg]; Oregano Extract [50 mg]; Olive Leaf Extract [40 mg] (per capsule).
Beta glucan is a very potent biological response modifier that nutritionally activates the immune response through the Macrophage immune cells to yield various therapeutic effects and is safe for all ages. In its most effective form, Beta glucan is extracted from the yeast cell wall of Baker’s yeast. Studies have shown that beta glucans act as immune-modulator agents, meaning they trigger a cascade of events that help regulate the immune system, making it more efficient. Specifically, beta glucans stimulate the activity of macrophages, which are versatile immune cells that ingest and demolish invading germs and signal other immune cells to attack. Macrophages also release cytokines, chemicals that when secreted enable the immune cells to communicate with one another. In addition, beta glucans stimulate lethal white blood cells that bind to tumors or viruses, and release chemicals to destroy it.
Esberitox (chewable) ( Enzymatic Therapy) Echinacea supports your immune system defenses by fortifying your most critical cells with natural fighting power. Esberitox® has been the top-selling remedy in Europe for over 70 years and can be used by your entire family. Only Esberitox® combines two types of Echinacea with two additional immune-supporting herbs, baptisia and thuja.* This gives Esberitox® a broader spectrum of activity than Echinacea alone.* The powerful combination promotes the body's resistive functions by stimulating the production and activity of critical immune cells.* Safe for Children and Adults use as directed on label. (should not be used by people with auto-immune disorders or transplants)
Monolaurin (Ecological Formulas) a powerful antiviral and antibacterial, is a monoester formed from lauric acid (medium chain fatty acids) derived from coconut oil. According the report “A Review of Monolaurin and Lauric Acid”, research has suggested that monolaurin exerts virucidal and bactericidal effects by solubilizing the lipids and phospholipids in the envelope of the pathogen causing the disintegration of its envelope. Recent evidence has also indicated that monolaurin disrupts the cell replication of the virus. Monolaurin has had good results in studies of Shingles, Herpes virus and Epstein Bar virus, which.
Virattack ( Herb Pharm) a liquid Anti-Viral formula. Proprietary extract blend: Lomatium root (Lomatium dissectum), St. John's Wort flowering top (Hypericum perforatum), Echinacea root (Echinacea purpurea), Olive leaf (Olea europaea), Lemon Balm leaf & flower (Melissa officinalis).
