How it works
Traditionally used to reduce common cold duration
Echinacea is native to North America, and has a long history of use in Western herbal medicine, where it has traditionally been used to relieve symptoms of common colds and flu including a blocked or runny nose and mild fever.
Echinacea is also traditionally used in Western herbal medicine to support the immune system to fight illness, such as the symptoms of common colds, and relieve symptoms of mild tonsillitis. Plus, echinacea decreases the length of common colds.
Traditionally used to relieve common cold symptoms in TCM.
Balloonflower is a popular herb in Chinese medicine where it’s traditionally used to reduce symptoms of the common cold including cough. It’s also traditionally used in TCM to clear mucus in the respiratory tract and enhance lung health.
Japanese catnip and forsythia
Japanese catnip is another well utilised herb in Chinese medicine, where it’s traditionally used to relieve sore throat, headaches, and mild fever when a symptom pattern known as external wind-cold exists.
Fusion Cold & Flu also contains forsythia, which is traditionally used in TCM to relieve symptoms of common cold and flu including mild fever and headaches, when the symptom pattern of wind-heat exists.
Fusion Cold & Flu also contains honeysuckle, a popular Chinese herb which has been used for centuries. Honeysuckle and forsythia are often taken together in Chinese medicine.
