Effective natural herbs for fighting viral infection

Although antibiotics are not helpful in fighting viruses, many herbs have proven effective against viruses.

This herb is considered the most used and effective in combating viruses, because it contains three anti-viral compounds: caffeic acid, chicoric acid and echinacin, and the echinacea root acts as an interferon, which is produced by the body.
The echinacea is an immunostimulator that helps the body protect itself from viral infection more efficiently.

Astragalus :

Astragalus was found in China and boosts the immune system, according to a Chinese study of ten people infected with Coxsackie B virus, which causes myocarditis, when immune system activity increased from 11% to 45%, and alpha and beta interferon levels increased as antiviral compounds.
