Viruxal® creates a temporary protective barrier when administered to the nose and mouth. The protective barrier helps reduce viral load by preventing illness-causing airborne microbes from adhering to mucosal tissue surfaces.

How do Viruxal
fatty acids work
against viruses?

Break and destroy

Viruxal® contains fatty acids that break up the lipid envelope of viruses through their polar and non-polar nature and in that way, destroy them. Utah State University has confirmed in laboratory testing that Viruxal® has been confirmed to destroys 99.97% of SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19.
