Star anise ( 八角)

收到的forward email, 试试看无妨嘛对吗?


FRENS, NO HARM KNOWING MORE HOW TO TAKE PRECAUTION IF HIT BY H1N1.....

Not sure if it works

Good to know & try if needed

We have also read about the effects of Tamiflu so the choice is yours.



Got the recipe from a friend who is studying chinese medicine. In
case swine flu comes around and you cannot get hold of Tamiflu, no
harm trying. Tamiflu may run out very quickly given that the
manufacturers need about 3-4 months to produce them.

Star anise is a spice ingredient used in chinese cooking and it is
cheap in Malaysia to buy them, so no harm trying out.

Use 9 star anise, 6 cups of water, boil in earthern pot if possible or
else avoid steel/metal pot.

Boil for about 30-40 mins until about 4 cups left. Drink twice daily
over the flu period. Above volume good for 2 adults per day.

To add flavour, add couple of red dates (remove seed before boiling).

For your info, the active ingredient in Tamiflu isfrom star anise.
The manufacturer of tamiflu sourced the star anise only from China. Those
from other countries
do not have the same active ingredient.
