The antibacterial and antiviral effects of Thymus vulgaris have been documented in clinical studies. Unlike chemically constructed pharmaceutical drugs, the plant has a slight variance in its chemical makeup from one season to the next. It is believed, that for this reason, bacteria and viruses are unable to develop a resistance to the natural plant remedy.
