"Untargeted metabolomics was performed on serum samples collected from 51 healthcare workers who were in good health at the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak in Italy, and who were later exposed to the same risk of developing COVID-19. Half of them developed COVID-19 within three weeks of the blood collection."

See the Study

"Our results demonstrate the presence of a specific signature associated with protection from SARS-CoV-2. Circulating monolaurin, which has well-known antiviral and antibacterial properties, was higher in protected subjects, suggesting a potential defensive role against SARS-CoV-2 infection; thus, dietary supplements could boost the immune system against this infection." 



The study of the range of metabolites present in a person's body at normal times, and when suffering from specific diseases; may be useful as a diagnostic tool

Wondrous Roots Products Featuring Therapeutic Coconut Oil

Contains plants that have demonstrated antiviral (including herpes simplex I, the virus that causes cold sores), anti-inflammatory, and "anti-histamine" properties in a base that is pleasant in every way for everyday lip care.

Laurisene - combining Monolaurin & L-Lysine

Especially in the dry winter months, nasal passages can be very dry, causing discomfort and even nosebleed. Coconut oil is soothing to the mucus membranes and keeps them moist - one application lasts an entire day. Yarrow has an amazing ability to instantly stop hemorrhage, thus preventing a nosebleed especially as related to dry nose conditions. 

Iodine is antiviral.  

Olive leaf is antiviral.  

The formula now  includes white pine needle and dandelion leaf, both of which have been studied and shown to help defend against coronaviruses.  

Coconut oil is also effective against all lipid-coated viruses, bacteria, and fungi, so terrific for intercepting many infectious illnesses.  

Wondrous Nose

Coconut oil is a rich source of lauric acid, which has been demonstrated to kill all lipid-coated bacteria and viruses. This includes all of the herpes viruses. When lauric acid and the membranes meet up, the lauric acid essentially dissolves the membrane, leaving the contents defenseless - they spill out and die. Added to this is Lemon balm, which is also known and demonstrated to kill the herpes viruses, as do Calendula flowers; the Calendula also helps speed healing. Rooibos also contains herpes-fighting constituents and is very soothing to the skin. Green tea contains constituents that are powerful mast cell membrane strengtheners, helping to reduce the release of histamine and - with its high polyphenol/antioxidant content - helps reduce inflammation. Each of the essential oils are included for their antiviral properties, as well as for their pleasant tastes and smell; there are no "shirkers" in this formula!  ST. JOHN'S WORT is added for its protection of the nerves and its antiviral properties.
