These natural herbs are very effective in boosting the immune system, increasing the body resistance to infections, healing the allergies, and raising and renewing the body vitality. Herbs are not like pharmaceuticals, they act more gently and on a deeper level, but need to be taken daily (3 times is best) and consistently to really reap the benefits.
