I went to the ER with a suspected case of COVID-19in March 2020.. I had ALL typical symptoms plus severe nausea but later tested negative. My labs showed that I had a severe viral infection among other serious health issues. After 2 days of suffering, my order arrived. I ordered Astragalus Root Huang Qi Extract Pwd 100gr Plum Flower, Licorice Root Gan Cao Extract Pwd 100gr Plum Flower, and Forsythia Fruit 10X Extract Granules Lian Qiao Activeherb 100 g. I mixed 1 gram of each into 16oz of hot water and consume 2x a day. I am not certain which of the 3 products helped, but I am pleased to report that using all managed to reduce a 4-day 101-degree fever that prescription drugs and an IV fever reducer could not reduce. All of my COVID- symptoms also went into remission. (corrected for typos).
