Dr. Mumcuoglu isolated the plant’s active ingredients and found that two of them combated the flu virus very effectively.According to an article written by Dr. D. R Small-bone, viruses can’t reproduce on their own. To do this they have to invade human or other cells.

The ‘flu virus tries to puncture cell walls with tiny spikes, the elderberry binds to the spikes and stops the virus getting in.
