Antibacterial Effect Of Immutonic Capsule
Prof. Dr. Hussein O. kadi1 and Dr. Ali Alhawri
Many herbs and natural food materials have been historically recognized as an effective panacea that can establish a balanced inflammatory response and promoting healthy immune response as well as have antibacterial and viral effects. The clinical use of some medications can cause serious side effects. We proposed that natural ingredients could serve as a better therapeutic approach.
