Also featured prominently is lomatium, a highly potent antiviral herb used by the Washoe tribe in Nevada to dramatically lower mortality during the great flu pandemic of 1917-18.
The benefits of these two herbs escalate in combination with the other herbs in this formula. Echinacea and holy basil are both anti-infective and have an impressively long history of use for colds, fever, and influenza. Wild indigo, while an infection fighter in its own right, also makes echinacea work better.
