Herb use for the Flu

With more and more people falling ill with the swine flu, it makes sense to work on boosting the immune system to help fight off the virus if we unfortunately come in contact with it. The following are some natural and herbal remedies that may help.

Vitamin D
Vitamin D has been found to help the immune system to successfully defeat viruses of all kinds.

Elderberry syrup
Extract of elderberry (sambucol) has been found to fight the standard strains of influenza. It has been shown to reduce the duration of flues and colds by several days.

Other items that may help fight off those nasty viruses are selenium, Echinacea, goldenseal, zinc, and vitamin C.
