Vacuna para la Influenza

Marcas Comerciales:

FluShield; Fluvirin; Fluzone

La vacuna de la influenza, aunque no es perfecta, significativamente reduce el riesgo de contraer la epidemia anual de gripe. También puede causar síntomas menos severos si se desarrolla la influenza.

Podría Aumentar la Efectividad de la Vacuna

Un estudio de doble ciego de 227 individuos descubrió que el ginseng podría ayudar a que la vacuna funcione de manera más efectiva, incrementando la producción de anticuerpos y reduciendo la frecuencia de resfriados y gripes.1 La dosis usada en el estudio fue de 100 mg de ginseng asiático (Panax ginseng) tomado dos veces al día por 1 mes antes y 2 meses después de que la vacuna fuera administrada.
