Astragalus is a rhizome, which increases production of white blood cells and strengthens the immune response. It also has antibacterial properties and can be used as an energy tonic. It is believed to be a galactagogue and studies show it may strengthen the human immune system, as well as increase the body’s resistance to common viruses. In Western herbal medicine, astragalus is primarily considered a tonic for enhancing metabolism and digestion. It is consumed as a tea made from the roots of the plant. Ashwagandha Withania somnifera, commonly known in India as ashwagandha, is one of the most highly valuable herbs in the Ayurvedic medical system. It is also called Indian ginseng, winter cherry, ajagandha, kanaje hindi, and samm al ferakh. A plant in the solanaceae or nightshade family, its active constituents are pyrazol alkaloids, steroidal lactones, saponins, and anolides.
Cat’s claw consists of the following components which may contribute to its effectiveness: oxindole alkaloids, polyphenols, polyhydroxylated triterpenes, plant sterols, catechin tannins, quinovic acid glycosides, and flavonoids. Laboratory research in vitro (in a test tube) or in vivo (in lab animals) suggests that cat’s claw may stimulate the immune system, prevent mutations, stop the spread of cancer cells, kill viruses, and reduce inflammation. Pentacyclic oxindole alkaloids appear to be the main component of cat’s claw, responsible for boosting the immune system. Cat’s Claw is also known as: hawk’s claw, the life-giving vine of Peru, paragyayo, garabato, u’a de gavilan, samento, and popkainangra.
As a rhizome, echinacea root has antibacterial and antiviral properties, as well as strengthens resistance to infections. It is useful for all septic or infectious conditions.

Reishi has long been used as an herbal remedy for promotion of health and longevity in China and other Asian countries. The most attractive character of this kind of medicinal fungus is its effect on the immune system and its anti-tumor activities. Studies have shown that reishi modulates many components of the immune system, such as the antigen-presenting cells, NK cells, and T and B lymphocytes.

Eleuthero has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years to treat rheumatism, weak liver and kidneys, low energy levels, and to prevent respiratory tract infections, including colds and the flu.
Since the early 1990s, research on the medicinal properties of the essential oil of tea tree has been conducted by a group of scientists within the School of Biomedical, Biomolecular, and Chemical Sciences at the University of Western Australia. The primary aim of the group is to investigate and characterize the medicinal properties of tea tree oil, in particular the antimicrobial properties. So far, the group has shown that tea tree oil has a broad spectrum in vitro antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral activity.
