Description

A herbal remedy providing supportive therapy for colds and chronic infections of the respiratory tract. Echinacea is also a powerful enhancer of the immune system.

Garlix contains both alliin and allinase and exhibits a standardised allicin-releasing potential equivalent to 2.4 mg of allicin per tablet (allicin is one of the sulphur-containing compounds responsible for the antimicrobial action of garlic)

Low odour, high potency

High dose provides therapeutic action for the treatment of colds

Enteric-coated to ensure that the product is not absorbed until it reaches the intestine where it is needed, thereby minimising odour

Echinacea has been extensively investigated and is known to have a variety of actions on the immune system, including elevation of serum white blood cell count (when numbers are low), promotion of non-specific T-cell activation (leading to a range of other activities including increased activity of natural killer cells and stimulating the release of interferon), enhancement of macrophage activity, as well as having antibacterial and antiviral properties. It is indicated for the relief of symptoms of infections, particularly those of the upper respiratory tract such as cold, flu and sinusitis.

Garlic exhibits broad-spectrum antimicrobial and antibacterial activity and is particularly active against the influenza virus. It is also indicated for the temporary relief of symptoms of other infections especially those in the respiratory tract, including bronchitis, sinusitis and colds. Allicin (an unstable compound formed by the enzymatic action of allinase on alliin), is required to be present for the antimicrobial activity of garlic to take place.
