BENEFITS This wonderful African plant has been well proven to reduce the severity and duration of the common cold, especially for infections of the lungs (bronchia). It’s the single ingredient in Germany’s most popular herbal cough syrup for children “Umckaloabo”.
Pelargonium helps boost the immune system and attacks the flu virus, so the cold doesn’t get the chance to develop into a full-blown, bed-bound, time-waster.
There really is no cure for the common cold, but using Pelargonium has been proven to reduce the severity and duration of your cold and that goes a long way to helping you recover. In cases of bronchitis, Pelargonium extracts have been shown to be particularly effective, a good thing to remember for the next time you, your family or a friend are down with flu.
Traditional uses Pelargonium has been used as a remedy for colds, flu and bronchial infections. The Zulu people of South Africa have traditionally used it to treat gonorrhoea, diarrhoea and dysentery.Therapeutic indicationsAcute bronchitis in children and adults.A total of 18 clinical trials have been conducted to date, several of which were randomised, double-blind and placebo-controlled. Pelargonium sidoides has been shown to effectively shorten the severity and duration of acute bronchitis and tonsillopharyngitis, most notably in children.ContraindicationsA theoretical risk of interactions with anticoagulants and anti-playlet drugs could not be confirmed.PrecautionsDo not use during pregnancy or lactation
