Pelargonium – is indigenous to areas of South Africa and is widely used by traditional healers of the Zulu, Basuto, Xhosa, and Mfengi tribes to treat dysentery, diarrhea, hepatic complaints, wounds, colds, fatigue, fevers, generalized weakness, and infections of the respiratory tract including tuberculosis. This traditional herbal medicine has both antibacterial and antiviral properties relieving upper respiratory tract symptoms from the common cold - including sore throat, cough, and blocked or runny nose; soothing the throat, nose and sinuses. Pelargonium has also shown to be effective for gastritis caused by Helicobacter pylori growth by reducing bacterial adherence to gastric epithelial cells and anti-viral activity inhibits Herpes simplex type 1 & 2.
Zinc – is essential for the development and maturation of healthy immune cells. Having a Zinc deficiency rapidly diminishes immune function leading to infections; it will also adversely affect T cells. Zinc has an antioxidant action to reduce oxidative stress.
Did you Know? Western use of Pelargonium to treat tuberculosis is traced back to the Englishman Major Charles Stevens in 1897 when he was treated by a tribal healer with an extract from the roots of Pelargonium species.
