Antiviral activity of garlic extract on influenza virus – (ResearchGate iOS App)
- Abstract: (selected excerpts)
Background and Aims: Influenza virus is the most important cause of annual morbidities and mortalities worldwide with numerous antigenic drifts and shifts. Inaccessibility to effective drugs and vaccines has made world health authorities to be interested in traditional medicine in order to prevent spread of the infectious agent. Garlic is one of the most famous of all plants in human history. It has been shown that garlic extract has various effects on different diseases. The aim of this study was to evaluate garlic extract antiviral activity against influenza virus in cell culture. (emphasis added)
- Broad range of pathogenic organisms, including bacteria, fungi, protozoa and viruses
- have been shown to be sensitive to fresh crushed garlic.
- As long as influenza virus remains a serious cause of disease, there will be a need to
- identify and develop some anti-influenza compounds with distinct mechanisms of action.
- Current therapeutic antiviral drugs have limited clinical efficiency and toxic side effects.
- Antiviral agents of plant origin are easily accessible, mostly nontoxic, and inexpensive.
- In conclusion, the biochemical and molecular methods used to evaluate the antiviral activity of Garlic extract demonstrated that this compound could be suggested as a suitable potent antiseptic agent.
Time and time again, article after article, the power of garlic researched and sometimes proven to be 100x more effective that leading antibiotics, has given me the courage to face the ever evolving Designer Lab Killer Viruses, bacteria, or yeast, with confidence, that I’ve found an affordable and available natural alternative that keeps on working while antibiotics are failing one after another.
But there is more to learn — the how, and the correct method to get the healing results that is now so widespread available on a global scale.
