Viral infection intervention:
A formula of 6 herbs that have proven capacity for resolving respiratory infections of various kinds and/or they display antiviral, immunomodulating actions.
Designed to be taken at the onset of and during a viral infection - with a maximum consumption timespan of 14 days (certain herbs begin to lose effectiveness after this time period. This is different to shelf-life, which, at room temperature and out of light is indefinite/very lengthy). 
Liquorice (cooling, moistening), angelica (strongly warming, moistening and drying potentials), clematis (strongly warming in chest region), echinacea (cooling, drying), elderberry (cooling, drying – but relieves circulation stagnation which allows moistening, warming properties of herbs to travel upwards), bidens pilosa (neutral).
Recommended dose: 15 drops 3-5 times a day at suspected onset and during a viral infection. 

Licorice:
Coronaviruses prefer dry, cool environments to exist and proliferate in, licorice is moistening and will also help to harmonise the rest of the formula.
Broadspectrum antiviral properties. Triterpenoids such as glycyrrhizin from the licorice plant, Glycyrrhiza glabra L., have been reported to have in vitro anti-SARS effects. These natural compounds interfere with virus–host fusion. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC8271932/
Contains glycyrrhizin which shows a strong anti-SARS-CoV activity (Li et al., 2005a,b).
Glycyrrhizin lowers the ability of SARS-Cov agents to attach to the cell particularly in the early stages of viral infestation.

Furthermore, along with Glycyrrhizin it contains flavonoids, β-sitosterol, hydroxyl coumarins and glycyrrhetinic acid, which have been affirmed to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant potential that induce the formation of interferons in human body. Has been shown to inihibit viral replication or SARS-Cov-2
