Siddha physicians prescribe many drugs to bring around several viral infections such as swine flu, chikungunya and dengue nowadays. The polyherbal decoction Nilavembu Kudineer (NK) is a familiar one in this series. This drug is administered for all age groups and observed by nil adverse effects. Even Tamil speaking people are well known of this drug irrespective of their literacy, knowledge about medicine etc.  Many researchers rivet over this drug because of its rescuing nature from various microbial infections. Here, an attempt has been made to summarize the explored ethno pharmacological activities of the ingredients in order to strengthen the scientific facts favouring this drug. This will put a step ahead in the field of research for further studies.
