Common cold and flu are usually caused by different viruses, which are the most common diseases of human beings. They are mainly caused by single-stranded RNA viruses from Picornavirus family, known as rhinoviruses. In adults, seasonal flu is caused by influenza, a virus that spreads easily in human population with periodical epidemic outbreaks. Common cold and flu are not only caused by different viruses, but by bacteria and mycoplasma that provoke similar symptoms and are frequently consumed with one another due to individual variability.

Each extract is standardized to contain the bioactive compounds - Andrographolide, Anthocyanins and Umckalin - to provide a very powerful triple antiviral combination and potent immune support formula to shield you from cold and flu.
Andrographis (Andrographis paniculata), also known as ‘King of Bitters’, ‘hempedu bumi’ or ‘chuan xin lian’, is a tropical and sub-tropical herb widely found in South and Southeast Asia. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Ayurvedic medicine, Andrographis was popularly used as an immune health herb and has been known for its demonstrated use in fighting against cold, flu and upper respiratory tract infections. Andrographis is beginning to gain popularity in the West for its ability to support the immune system and as an anti-cold and flu remedy. It has been shown to hasten recovery from the common cold and increase the immune system’s resistance to prevent cold episode onset.
Black elderberry (Sambucus nigra) has been used for centuries and is widely known as a potent source of antioxidants, as well as its immune supporting properties. Elderberries are rich in flavonoids, anthocyanins, polyphenols, pectic polysaccharides and lectins, which are responsible for its efficacy in managing common cold and flu. The major anthocyanins present in black elderberry include cyanidin 3-glucoside and cyanidin 3-sambubioside. Black elderberry is one of the most commonly used medicinal plants in the world and it was the major ingredient in formulations used during the 1918 Spanish influenza epidemic. It has been shown in clinical studies to be effective against virus- and bacteria-induced respiratory tract infections.
Pelargonium (Pelargonium sidoides) is also known as South African Geranium or Umckaloabo. It has been traditionally used by the Zulus of South Africa to treat coughs, colds, upper respiratory tract irritations and tuberculosis. It is introduced into European herbal medicine in the last century for the treatment of tuberculosis. It has been clinically proven to reduce the severity and shorten the duration of acute bronchitis in adults and children. Pelargonium Root is legally marketed in Switzerland and various countries in Europe, North and South America, the Middle East, Japan, Australia and some countries in Asia.
