Herb therapies for influenza are not specific for the viral strain.

Herb therapy applied to address the first signs of influenza, might prevent the infection from developing into full symptomatic disease.

Instead, they may have general actions that work to help boost the immune system to help eliminate the virus faster.

At high enough dosage they may have direct (but general) inhibitory effects on viral reproduction, and they may simply ameliorate some of the symptoms, thus making a serious infection seem mild.

There is not one herb that is known to be a reliable treatment for flu; rather, there are a collection of herbal extracts and formulas that work synergistically to alleviate the symptoms and enhance the immune system.

WellPoint Nutraceuticals Imun RX and Lifeforce work synergistically to alleviate the symptoms and effects of influenza.
