I’ve just come across a very interesting product called Flu Defence. Here is a bit of spiel from their web page.
Flu defence is the first 100% natural general-purpose flu remedy that attacks the virus and boosts the immune system, with no known side effects. Now you can easily Prevent flu and support your bodies natural defences during acute symptoms. The fine of herbal extracts in Flu Defence, will not only boost your immune system, but will also neutralize various viruses. Studies show the ingredients in Flu Defense act a powerful immune booster, that exhibits strong antiviral action against influenza A & B, birdflu, herpes, swine flu and even HIV.
What I found extremely interesting is their claim that it “exhibits strong antiviral action against influenza A 7 B, swine flu and even HIV”. Note, it doesn’t say it will cure HIV as it will help as a defense against the virus.
I like the fact that it is a herbal product containing well known ingredients such as Elderberry extract, Echinacea extract, Vitamin C and Zinc Oxide, and I have heard of many stories where herbal medicine has been able to cure or aid in the relief of many ailments that normal drugs could not. I’m pretty sure I’ve even heard of of pharmaceutical companies using herbal extracts in their medication.
The Internet being what it is I would really like to know from anybody who has used this product as to whether it had a beneficial effect, because if it did I would love to have it as part of my arsenal against the fight against colds and flu.
