In brief: Echinacea
Echinacea is an herbal supplement that boosts immune system. Fda guidelines require a label stating that supplements are not intended to treat, diagnose or cure a disease.
If your immune system is good, it will help fight infections. Colloidal silver may have antibacterial properties.
