Zucol Coldcare


Marketed by:
Abkit Inc (New York, NY)

Indication:
Zucol Coldcare stops the cold before it takes hold by shortening the duration and severity. Zucol Coldcare?s active ingredient is an extract from a plant called pelargonium sidoides. The plant extract appears to have properties that boost immune function and contains antimicrobial properties, which seem to have a limiting effect on the intensity of the viral infection. It also increases ciliary beat frequency that speeds up the movement of mucus out of the upper respiratory mucous membranes. Zucol Coldcare should be taken at the first sign of any cold symptoms. The recommended dose is 3 lozenges daily for a period of 6 days even if symptoms disappear.
