Danny Williams pops some plant extract to stifle sniffles
What it is?
Containing extracts of Pelargonium sidoides, a medicinal plant native to South Africa which has long been hailed for its anti-vial, anti-bacterial and mucus-relieving qualities, Kaloba promises to soothe symptoms of upper respiratory tract infections, like a runny or blocked nose, sore throat or cough. Suitable for adults and children over 12, you take one tablet with water, three times a day until your cold passes, then another couple of days to prevent it coming back. (Maximum usage is two weeks and not suitable for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Always read the label).
What’s it like?
I’ve used this a few times now this winter and, unless it’s a complete coincidence, I’ve certainly noticed benefits. Starting the treatment at the first hint of a sniffle seemed to stop symptoms developing into a full-blown cold and made them a lot easier to bear.
