Andrographis plays a leading role in this formula; it is a herb with a long history of medicinal use in the Far East, where it is valued highly as one of the foremost immune-stimulants and infection fighters. In addition to andrographis, there are four other expertly chosen herbs that complement and escalate its antimicrobial benefits, while adding an anti-inflammatory effect
St. Francis Herb Farm uses either certified organic or wildcrafted herbs in our Virafect herbal formula.
Available sizes: 50ml, 100ml, 250ml and larger sizes for Health Professionals.
Probably the most popular and most widely known of herbal remedies, echinacea is a drought-tolerant perennial plant that can grow up to four feet in height. With immunological properties, it is native to the United States and a member of the daisy family. Its name comes from the Greek that means "hedgehog"--a reference to its spiky central disk. The medicinal compounds in the purpurea species known as alkamides are more bioavailable when in the presence of those from the angustifolia species. This is the rationale behind our EchinAce formula.
A perennial herb with yellow flowers, wild indigo can be found throughout eastern North America. Its root has been used medicinally for centuries beginning with the aboriginal peoples.
