It's still flu season. There has not been a better time than now, as we all watch the news anxiously awaiting more information on the Coronavirus, to consider natural preventions for viruses and flus.
Protection Against Viral Infection
Unlike bacterial infections, viruses are tiny bits of nucleic acids that contain information and use your body’s cells tor create more copies of themselves. The Coronavirus is an enveloped, positive-sense single-stranded RNA (ssRNA) virus belonging to the Coronaviridae family. The CoV family consists of several species and causes upper respiratory tract and gastrointestinal infections. The best way to fight these is to support your immune system, wash your hands and avoid people who are visibly sick; however, there are also some herbs and supplements that are virus-specific that you may want to consider adding to your daily routine.
