As with humans, most bacteria and viruses associated with plants are beneficial and important to overall health. Also like humans, plants must deal with invasion of pathogenic bacteria or viruses. In order to protect themselves, plants have developed an array of molecules that are also beneficial in addressing bacterial and viral infections in humans. From enhancing epithelial health, to boosting immune function, to directly killing or inhibiting the growth of pathogens, this presentation will discuss clinically relevant botanical strategies for the prevention and treatment of infections.
