Natura A Natural Way of Life Pentagen Cold Fighter 50 ml
A homoeopathic medicine which targets blocked and runny nose, sinusitis, sore throat, cough, mild fever and headache. Mode of action: The combined action of the ingredients in Pentagen effectively target symptoms in 5 main areas affected by upper respiratory tract infections, colds and flu, namely: 1. Blocked and runny nose. 2. Painful and inflamed sinuses. 3. Sore throat and tonsillitis. 4. Loose or tight cough and associated pain in chest. 5. General mild fever, headache and fatigue. Clinical trials have shown standardized extracts of pelargonium sidoides to safely and effectively shorten the severity and duration of acute bronchitis and tonsillopharyngitis. Perhaps most notable has been the rapid recovery noted for children with non-group. A beta-haemolytic streptococcus tonsillopharyngitis. The main constituents of P. sidoides root comprise coumarins, tannins of the proanthocyanidin type and simple phenolic compounds. While the mechanism of action is not clear, in vitro studies suggest that it may be due to the antibacterial and immunomodulatory properties that have been demonstrated for the tannins (catechin, gallocatechin, and gallic acid) and coumarins (umckalin). The immunomodulatory actions are mediated by the release of tumor necrosis factor alpha and nitric oxide as well as the stimulation of interferon and an increase of natural killer cells. In Pentagon these scientifically proven antibacterial and immune modulatory properties of Pelargonium sidoides are further complemented by key homoeopathic ingredients which have the specific potential to target aspects related to the symptoms of the common cold and influenza as follows: Ferrum phosphoricum - for first stage of all feverish and inflammatory conditions. Especially beneficial for first stages of colds and sore throats. Hydrastis canadensis - for thick, yellow ropy mucus in the nose, sinuses and throat. Also for cough with burning pain in chest and thick yellow expectoration. Kalium bichromicum - for blocked nose and tough, stringy, viscid secretions of the sinuses, pharynx, the larynx and bronchi. Especially effective for treating post nasal drip and 'snuffles' in children. Mercurius solubilis - for swollen glands including the tonsils and lymph glands as well as sinusitis with frequent sneezing, burning nasal passages and catarrhal headaches. Also for foul-smelling discharges. Natrium muriaticum - for profuse runny nose and frontal sinus inflammation often accompanied by frequent or explosive sneezing. Also helps for feeling of great weakness and weariness. Polygala senega - for excessive, tough mucus in the respiratory passages and cough with pressure feeling in chest, pain in back and difficult expectoration. Pulsatilla pratensis - for thick, bland discharges. Especially for alternating runny nose and loose cough in the morning; blocked nose, dry cough and difficulty breathing at night. Sambucus nigra - for spasmodic, suffocative cough and blocked nose with congestive dryness of the nasal mucosa. Especially beneficial for snuffles in children with difficulty sleeping.
