Illicium verum contains an important component of the avian influenza virus, shikimic acid. Experts say this is the only weapon against avian influenza in the world. Rich in China and Vietnam, it is a small Oriental species of Magnoliaceae fruits, spicy taste, similar to licorice, is the traditional seasoning of Oriental cooking, but also French green fennel wine and anise liqueur, such as the main flavor liqueur. It can also be used to increase the aroma of candy, anise and tobacco. The medicinal value of star anise has attracted much attention before the advent of avian influenza, including its potential anticancer effects. Now as the main source of shikimic acid, anise is attracting renewed attention because shikimic acid is an important component of the drug Tamiflu, which is effective against the deadly H5N1 avian influenza virus. "Ten Tamiflu capsules are needed to treat a patient infected with avian influenza, and 13 grams of anise is needed to make 10 Tamiflu capsules," said Albert Elglisi, director of Rica, an anise liquor maker in Marseilles, France. Shikimic acid costs between $200 and per kilogram. It's exceptionally good in quality and costs as much as per gram.
