Natural Anti-RetroViral Defense Herbs & Supplements (ie; Ebola, HIV)
Rubiaceae Medicinal
 is a family of  flowering plants, commonly known as the
, or
bedstraw family
. The family contains about 13,000 species in 611 genera
Ophiorrhiza rugosa var. prostrata
(Mongoose plant, Indian snakeroot,
 containing camptothecin (CPT), an alkaloid used in the treatment of cancer & has been found comparable to the CPT in 'Mappia foetida', a tree known for its anti-cancer properties.
Cancer chemo-preventive potential of Luteolin-7-O-Glucoside isolated from
Ophiorrhiza mungos
(False Buttonweed)
 are genera of Rubiaceae. Some biological activities of some isolated compounds and extracts of both genera. Ethnomedicinal and phytochemistry uses include the treatment of malaria, diarrheal and other digestive problems, skin diseases, fever, hemorrhage, urinary and respiratory infections, headache, inflammation of eye, and gums. To date, more than 60 compounds have been reported from
 species including alkaloids, iridoids, flavonoids, terpenoids, and other compounds. Studies have confirmed that extracts from
species as well as their isolated compounds possess diverse biological activities, including anti-inflammatory, antitumor, antimicrobial, larvicidal, antioxidant, gastrointestinal, anti-ulcer, and hepatoprotective, with alkaloids and iridoids as the major active principles.
The bark of trees in the genus 
 is the source of a variety of  alkaloids, the most familiar of which is quinine, one of the first agents effective in treating malaria. Woodruff (
) is a small herbaceous perennial that contains coumarin
a natural precursor of  warfarin
and the South  American plant 
 is the source of the emetic ipecac. 
 is frequently used as a source odimethyltryptamine in the preparation of  ayahuasca, a psychoactive decoction.
 Asafoetida was used in 1918 to fight the Spanish influenza
pandemic. In 2009, researchers reported
that the roots of Asafoetida produce natural antiviral drug compounds that demonstrated potency
against the H1N1 virus in vitro
and concluded that "sesquiterpene coumarins from
F. assa-
 may serve as promising lead compounds for new drug development against influenza A (H1N1) viral infection"
Ganoderma lucidum
oriolus vesicular
, contain β
-glucans and it has been suggested that these active compounds may have the immunomodulatory effects contributing to the overall anti-cancer property.
Arsenic trioxide As
 which originated from traditional medicines as a single agent and has emerged as an effective adjunct therapy in a few hematological malignancies.
mushroom is a fungus. People have used the fruiting body and other parts as folk medicine for a long time. Recently, researchers have started to isolate and identify substances in coriolus that might act like pharmaceutical drugs. Two of these substances are
polysaccharide peptide (PSP) and polysaccharide krestin (PSK). Scientists think these chemicals might be able to fight cancer  and boost the immune system. Coriolus mushroom, PSP, and PSK are used for stimulating the immune system; treating herpes, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), hepatitis, and pulmonary disorders; reducing
phlegm; improving bodybuilding results; increasing energy; curingringworm and a skin condition
called impetigo; treating upper respiratory, urinary, and digestive tract infections; curing liver  disorders including hepatitis; reducing the toxic effects and pain
of  chemotherapy and radiation therapy; increasing the effectiveness of chemotherapy;
prolonging life and raising the quality of life of cancer patients; and increasing appetite.
How does it work?
Coriolus contains polysaccharide peptide (PSP) and polysaccharide-K (PSK, krestin), which may be able to fight tumor growth as well as boost the immune system.
belongs to a class of chemicals called flavonoids. It occurs naturally in plants such as the passionflower, silver linden, and some geranium species; and in honey and bee propolis (glue). Chrysin is used for bodybuilding; for treating anxiety, inflammation, gout, HIV/ AIDS,erectile
dysfunction (ED), and baldness; and for preventing cancer . 
How does it work?
 Athletes are interested in chrysin for bodybuilding because laboratory research suggested that chrysin might increase the male hormone called testosterone and improve bodybuilding results. But research in humans hasn't found any effect on testosterone levels. The amount of chrysin that is absorbed from the intestine may be very small, which would make treatment effects unlikely.

 Schizandra is commonly found in traditional Chinese medicine. It is highly antiviral and has been used successfully against viral hepatitis. Capsules are the most commonly found form of schizandra, but some herb markets may carry the dried berries.
 A lot of health benefits can be derived from the mullein plant. It provides antiviral, anti-inflammatory, calming, expectorant, antihistamine, and emollient properties. For viruses that come with congestion, it is an excellent choice. Mullein is available as a tea, syrup, infusion, tincture, and decoction.
-- There is evidence suggesting that patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus are under chronic oxidative stress and thus may benefit from antioxidant vitamins. Vitamin D - HIV carriers with vitamin D deficiency are more likely to die than those with sufficient vitamin D in the blood. Multivitamins - Research from Africa suggests that basic multivitamin and selenium supplements lower the risk that untreated people with the AIDS virus will get sicker over a two-year period. Nov. 27, 2013, Journal of the American Medical Association. Green Tea -- Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), one of the components of green tea has been suggested to have antiviral activity. To determine the effects of EGCG on HIV infection, peripheral blood lymphocytes infected with HIV were incubated with increasing concentrations of EGCG. EGCG strongly inhibited the replication of the HIV virus. Glutamine, the amino acid, could be helpful for those on anti-HIV medicines.
Glutamine-antioxidant nutrient supplementation can increase body weight, body cell mass, and intracellular water when compared with placebo in HIV patients.

 has antiviral activity against herpes simplex and HIV-1. Licorice may be helpful. Olive Leaf  extract has anti-HIV activity
 has anti-HIV activity. Echinacea herb may be of some benefit. Ginseng CD4+ T cell counts in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1-infected patients are maintained or even increased when treated with Korean red ginseng. High doses of ginseng can be overly stimulating and cause insomnia.
Catuaba, an Amazonian plant, has anti-HIV activity. Bovine Colostrum
may reduce the severity of diarrhea in HIV patients.
