Thanks for the U2U Spooky!
We are grateful to Beth Beisel, registered dietitian and WAPF member for reminding us about the protective factors in coconut oil. Swine flu is a lipid coated virus (www.pnas.org...), and thus is inactivated by sufficient amounts of monolaurin. (Our bodies convert lauric acid, found in coconut oil, to monolaurin).
According to our own Dr. Mary Enig, two to three tablespoons of coconut oil per day appears to be an adequate dosage to fight infection, even from virulent antibiotic-resistant organisms such as MSRA.”
Elderberry Prevents Swine Flu September 11, 2009 Recent research has given new scientific evidence to the long-held empirical belief that elderberries possess antiviral activities. The research involved a specific, reproducible elderberry extract developed by HerbalScience Group LLC, and succeeded in identifying key chemical components of the extract that inhibited in vitro infection and were shown to bind directly to Human Influenza A (H1N1) virus particles.
femail doc said... Interesting question Anon. Elderberry is purported to have antiviral properties, specifically anti-influenza protection in deactivating the ability of the virus to penetrate cells. Per an article in the European Cytokine Network(1), this herb also is a potent stimulator of inflammatory cytokines which, as I've noted, can be a good thing while too much can be a bad thing. I am unfamiliar with the net effect of elderberry in the face of an overwhelming--read storm-producing--case of the flu.
