Well Viruses are made of the same stuff your body is made out of anyways:

Proteins Nucleic acids And sometimes they are packaged into a phospholipid membrane.

Your body basically digests that.

Proteins get broken down into Amino acids Nucleic acids get broken down into Nucleotides The membrane gets broken down into fatty acids.

And all that is then used by your body to build and repair itself.
