“Nutritional support for your immune system”

Extensive research has indicated the antiviral effect of Aspalathus linearis and its active components with regards to the influenza virus and more specifically during the virus replication process. The extract of unfermented Rooibos has also shown bronchodilatory, antiviral and antimicrobial effects which can be ascribed to the presence of the phytochemical, chrysoeriol. Its unique antioxidant Aspalathin, has been associated with anti-inflammatory and immune function modulation properties. Quercetin has indicated immune-modulating, anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral activities. Zinc has also been proven to possess several antiviral effects.
