The Hyssop Leaf is known for its ability to assist with bacterial and viral infections but there are published scientific articles that suggest that hyssop leaf can be used in anti-HIV activity.
“Crude extracts of dried leaves of Hyssop officinalis showed strong anti-HIV activity as measured by inhibition of syncytia formation, HIV reverse transcriptase (RT), and p17 and p24 antigen expression, but were non-toxic to the uninfected Molt-3 cells. ” quote from Inhibition of HIV replication by Hyssop officinalis extracts.
WebMD also has positive things to say about the tea. “Hyssop is used for digestive and intestinal problems including liver and gallbladder conditions, intestinal pain, intestinal gas, colic, and loss of appetite. It is also used for respiratory problems including coughs, the common cold, respiratory infections, sore throat, and asthma.” (Source)
