What are the antiviral effects of autophagy?

Autophagy means “self-eat.” It’s a mechanism in the body that can break down things and recycle them. Autophagy is mainly known for breaking down damaged proteins in the body, but it also has unique antiviral effects. 

Autophagy can deal with:

• Viruses 

• Bacteria

• Fungus 

• Candida 

• Biofilms/nanobacteria 

Autophagy works with both parts of the immune system as a defense mechanism to keep harmful microbes outside of the body. Certain viruses have evolved and can resist autophagy. In some cases, these viruses can get through, and this really depends on the strength of your immune system as well as other variables. 

Other important remedies for viruses:

• Colloidal silver 

• Elderberry 

• Garlic 

• Olive leaf 

• Zinc
