Taking extra vitamin C is arguably the most popular remedy people use against the flu. However, research carried out by scientists at the Dr. Rath Research Institute has documented that combining vitamin C with lysine and other micronutrients, such as proline, green tea extract, and N-acetylcysteine, works more effectively than when taking it alone. When taken in combination, these micronutrients can target multiple mechanisms associated with flu infection.
The Dr. Rath Research Institute’s work has shown that a specific micronutrient synergy combination can impressively inhibit the multiplication of human flu viruses by up to 82 percent and reduce the infection of new cells by 70 percent. Moreover, it can also impair enzymatic destruction of the body’s connective tissue, which is a natural barrier against the spread of viruses. The combination has been found to be effective when applied before, during, and even after infection with a flu virus.
