Good companions, especially for the cold season

We all know the challenge. The cold season is coming and people around you are coughing or sneezing and you don’t feel like catching a nasty infection yourself. A cold is often accompanied by respiratory illnesses that bring with them coughs and sore throats. Other infectious risks, such as Covid-19, have negative effects on the throat and pharynx. Some representatives from the plant world have proven to be good companions.
Cistus (Latin: Cistus creticus), for example, was regularly used in Mediterranean medicine in pre-Christian times. Even today, the local rural population still prepares tea from cistus leaves – to help to ward off respiratory tract infections.
Echinacea purpurea, known to amateur gardeners as coneflower, has been used for hundreds of years as a medicinal plant by the indigenous people in North America. The Native Americans used echinacea for coughs and sore throats. European settlers quickly recognised its potential and so the plant was brought to Europe. It has also been used in Europe since the late 18th century.

Support for defence against infection

sanotact® Cold Defence Pastilles has a very special mode of action with its ingredients gum arabic/Cistus echinacea. The active complex covers the mucous membranes of the mouth and throat like a protective shield. This barrier serves to support the physical defense against viruses and bacteria and prevents them from entering the body’s cells. The further reproduction of harmful organisms is thus prevented and the development of disease is prevented. Thanks to its physical effect, there is no risk of developing resistance. Regularly taking sanotact® Cold Defence Pastilles in times of risk of infection helps the body defend itself against viruses and bacteria by forming a physical protective barrier on the pharyngeal mucous membranes.
Gum arabic also relieves chesty and dry coughs. The pastilles can therefore be used not only for acute problems, but as cough pastilles at the first sign of a scratchy throat.
The sugar-free lozenges have a pleasant fruit-mint taste and are vegan. They are free from preservatives, colourings and sugar, and are also gluten-free and lactose-free.
