Helps to STOP a Cold, when used at 1st signs
• Acts in the first hours/days of infection – when first exposed to risk and/or when 1st sign of minor symptoms is shown1
• Works by first allowing the microgel to TRAP cold viruses in the nasopharynx area2
• The cold viruses trapped in the microgel are then INACTIVATED, reducing its ability to multiple and spread2,3
• Then contributes to a nasal washout effect to REMOVE virus from the nose or down the stomach2
• Clinically proven to reduce cold severity by 60% and duration of cold by 24 days2,4
