The taste of the Fitura Power Immune product is just as it should be: Intense, complex and slightly bitter. There's a lot going on in there, with the herbal ingredients acting in synergy. It's not nearly as intense as, say, John Barron's super garlic tincture from Baseline Nutritionals, but that's okay since not everybody can handle that level of herbal intensity. Fitura's Power Immune is certainly far more potent than a lot of the herbal products found in retail, many of which are watery and seem to contain very little actual herbage.
The ingredients in Power Immune are:
• Echinacea Purpurea
• Cat's Claw
• Green Tea
• #ake Mushroom
• St. John's Wort
• Lemon Balm
• Olive Leaf
If you'll notice, each one of these ingredients is anti-viral by itself. Cat's Claw and Green Tea also have strong anti-cancer properties. Licorice helps stabilize blood sugar, #ake mushroom is an immunomodulator, and St. John's Wort is a wonderful mood booster that works better than antidepressant drugs. So there are other benefits provided by these ingredients, beyond their anti-viral effects.

I count my blessings everyday!
Also people, colds tend to manifest itself after a sudden drop in temperature so be vigilant.
Be the people who were dissing me off over the bird flu transport wished they didn't, I knew that spelt trouble!! Plus did no one report on the missing swine flu from the army base who someone said on here?
News just said they think they found ground zero for the swine virus. Some small town in Mexico, apparently a 4 year old was the first to contract the virus. He was exposed to a big pig farm. So I think you theory that the military in some way is behind this is kinda far fetched.

I understand the price of tin foil has been going up lately too. I wonder if there's a correlation. Perhaps Rumsfeld has shares with these companies too.

I am into holistic medicine myself but be careful with that, there are liability issues for posting recipes like that. As a fellow "witch doctor", my best advice is let your knowledge of alternative medicine be known and then let people come to you. You'd be amazed how a good hearted suggestion could be taken out of context! FYI, as soon as this potential mess broke out I started working on a powerful natural remedy for it. I stick with all plant based materials and oils though, if anyone is interested in remedies of this or any other nature, feel free to u2u me.
Enveloped viruses are most sensitive to essential oils with a high amount of monoterpene alcohols (eg. Linalool, present in Lavender, Coriander, Petitgrain and Thyme c.t. Linalool; Citronellol present in Geranium and Rose Otto; Geraniol present in Palmarosa; alpha-terpinol found in Eucalyptus Radiata, Niaouli and Ravensara; Terpinol-4 present in Tea Tree and Marjoram; and Menthol, found in Peppermint and Spearmint) and monoterpine phenols (eg. Carvacrol in Oregano, and Thymol in both Thyme and Oregano).
Non-enveloped, or 'naked' viruses are more sensitive to essential oils with a high content of terpenoid ketones (eg. Pinocamphone in Hyssop; Verbenone in Rosemary c.t. verbenone, Pinocarvone in Eucalyptus Globulus, and Thuja in Sage
