It is also used in Herbal Medicine for viral respiratory infections. Virafect has been specially formulated to treat upper respiratory infections of a viral nature. Andrographis plays a leading role in this formula; it is a herb with a long history of medicinal use in the Far East, where it is valued highly as one of the foremost immune-stimulants and infection fighters.
