Compare to Tamiflu...but without the side effects! ?Here in southern Alabama we have a tree called the Sweet Gum Tree. Liquidambar styraciflua is a large tree that is cursed for its hard spiky fruits that fall and are rough on the feet and lawn mowers. Its these fruits that we are interested in because they are a source of shikimic acid which is the active ingredient in medicines like Tamiflu®. Green sweet gum balls are made into a tincture that can help kill viruses in your body. Its right up there with Elderberry Tinctureand Oregano Tincture for anti-viral properties. To use it, I take 1 dropper every 3-4 hours when I know I have a virus. I combine it with elderberry syrup sometimes. If the taste is objectionable to you, you could put the dropper of tincture in a cup of water or even tea and drink it. For keeping viruses at bay, I take 1 dropper in a cup of hot water or straight each day during flu season.
