Star anise (Illicium verum) is a vital Chinese medicinal herb with actions of dispelling cold and regulating the flow of Qi (vital energy). Also used as a spice, Star anise is rich in Shikimic acid, a natural organic compound and one of the most widely studied molecules in the context of its antiviral effects. Shikimic acid is also an intermediary model for the production of drugs effective against influenza virus. Star Anise extracts are rich in phenolic antioxidants known to promote immunity to foreign pathogens by stimulating immune cell polyphenol receptors to activate signaling pathways for initiating immune response.
Pine needle oil (Pinus sylvestris) is an essential oil rich in monoterpene and diterpene hydrocarbons. Scientific evidence now shows monoterpenes have good anti-viral properties, and diterpenes have antimicrobial properties. Terpenes have a wide range of medicinal uses among which antiplasmodial (antimalarial) activity is notable. The mechanism of action is the disruption of the multiprotein complex that enables malaria-causing parasites to infect and replicate in red blood cells. Some viruses also use proteins as a tool for penetrating blood cells.
Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) strong extract has been added for synergistic effect.
