What Is It?
Advanced Cold Complex is a comprehensive cold formula containing Pelargonium sedoides (South African geranium), Tinospora cordifolia (Guduchi) and Andrographis panniculata. These three plant extracts are proven to boost the immune system and reduce the symptoms and frequency of viral and bacterial upper respiratory tract infections.
What Does It Do?
Primary Uses: This cold complex helps get rid of a cold and its symptoms quicker and reduces the risk of respiratory complications that may develop from or be exacerbated by such infections. Pelargonium reduces the ability of bacteria to adhere to the cells in the respiratory tract and helps your body expel them more easily. Pelargonium and Andrographis help reduce how often you catch a cold, how bad the cold is and how long it lasts. Tinospora works powerfully in the nasal region, and together with Pelargonium, reduces nasal congestion, discharge and sneezing.
Secondary Uses: Tinospora has been found especially effective in reducing nasal symptoms in allergic rhinitis and rhinosinusitis. Pelargonium and Andrographis are also helpful for more severe respiratory infections than just the common cold.
Who Should Take It?
Those who do not want to catch the current cold going around, who want to get better faster, and those who are prone to more severe respiratory complications when they get sick should make this their go-to formula.
Take 1 capsule three times per day, 30 minutes before food, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.
