A natural alternative to Tamiflu

September 2, 2009


Swine Flu is continuing to cause panic, and I know I have said it before, but it is all about how strong your immune system is that makes the difference between being vulnerable to infection and being less affected by it and swifter to recover from it.

I have suggested ways you can do this, generally with Echinacea and vitamin C as the stalwarts needed, but there is a new supplement that combines western science with Chinese traditional medicine which could be a useful addition to the mix.

BioFlu Vital is a natural herbal supplement that gives a powerful boost to the immune system with its effective combination of four of the most powerful, natural antioxidants: Black Elderberry, shown in human trials to reduce the severity of flu symptoms by 50%, Siberian Ginseng, Star Anise and Shikimic Acid, the plant from which the leading anti-viral drug Tamiflu is made.

Recent reports published in The Journal of International Medical Research has supported the use of Black Elderberry in particular as an effective and natural method of combating the effects of flu symptoms, reducing recovery time by half and if you want to read more of the research you will find it at


BioFlu Vital is produced by Biotivia and you should be able to find it in your local health store or ring Biotivia direct on 020 7900 3305 weekdays from 8am to 5pm.
