St. Francis Virafect
Helps to relieve the symptoms (sore throat, fever, etc.) and shorten the duration of upper respiratory tract infections (colds and flu). Used in Herbal Medicine for viral respiratory infections.
Virafect has been specially formulated to treat upper respiratory infections of a viral nature. Playing a leading role in this formula is andrographis, 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 enhancement and support of andrographis in this impressively effective formula, there are four other expertly chosen herbal ingredients that complement and escalate its antimicrobial benefits, even while adding an extremely useful anti-inflammatory dimension.
