Virex PlusRegular price $42.50
When it comes to respiratory infections, viruses don't respond to antibiotics. This is why botanicals and herbs can be extremely useful in treating these acute infections. Virex Plus contains a combination of ingredients with immunomodulation, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory effects. This makes it an ideal supplement for those suffering from respiratory infections. The immune system is fortified, the virus is destroyed, and the resulting inflammation is quelled. Virex Plus is the perfect way to fight respiratory viruses and keep your body healthy!
NAC: A potent antioxidant on its own, NAC also provides one of the three amino acids required to produce the body’s master antioxidant, glutathione. NAC has been shown to thin out mucus, increase production of secretory-IgA, and inhibit adhesion of microbes within the respiratory tract. Astragalus: In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Astragalus is considered a master immune herb. Astragalus increases activity of certain lymphocytes, B and T cells, which is much needed during an acute infection. Turmeric: Turmeric is one of the most well-known and well-studied antioxidants. Turmeric modulates the activation of several immune system cell types such as macrophages and NK cells. The decreased expression of inflammatory many cytokines and chemokines highlights its antioxidant effect. Eleuthero Extract: Eleuthero inhibits viral replication, thus preventing increased symptomology from an elevated viral load. It also upregulates the production of both IgM and IgG antibodies, which are vital in the body’s cascade for fighting off infections. Oregano Leaf Extract: Oregano oil has been a remedy for all types of infections for several millennia. Oregano oil inactivates viruses by causing expansion of the viral capsid to the point of disintegration. It has also been shown to inhibit virus and host cell fusion, preventing viral replication and further infectious burden. Bromelain: Bromelain, a proteolytic enzyme derived from pineapples, has a wide variety of applications within the body. It has wide-spectrum antimicrobial properties, where the enzyme essentially digests components of the pathogen’s cell wall, thus rendering it “dead.” Bromelain has a unique duality in providing immunomodulation. It can promote the release of cytokines and modulate T-cell proliferation within a healthy immune system when it is needed, and can also inhibit the secretion of the same cytokines when there is inflammation present from an infection with an already activated immune system. Berberine Extract: Berberine, which is derived from several medicinal plants, provides several mechanisms as an anti-viral agent and as an antioxidant. Berberine inhibits viral replication by downregulating NF-kB, halts viral-host binding by binding directly to the virus, and can promote a localized inflammatory response to promote an anti-viral environment within cells. Furthermore, berberine has anti-inflammatory effects by blocking production of cytokines when inflammation is already elevated from the infection. Licorice Root Extract: Licorice Root is a staple botanical in Traditional Chinese Medicine with multiple medicinal properties. Its antiviral effects encompass the following: inhibiting viral gene expression, blocking virus-host binding, preventing viral replication, and promoting T lymphocyte proliferation.
