What the active Ingredients do

Olea europa has antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial properties. The active compounds elenolic acid, calcium elenolate oleuropein , were found to ward off virus, bacterium or protozoan influenza, parasitic protozoan, fungus, and yeast infections, by dissolving the outer lining of microbes. The ability to interfere with critical amino acid production essential for viruses, contains viral infection and/or spread by inactivating viruses or by preventing virus shedding, budding or assembly at the cell membrane, Directly penetrates infected cells and stop viral replication. In the case of retroviruses, it is able to neutralize the production of reverse transcriptase and protease. Stimulates phagocytosis, an immune system response in which cells ingest harmful microorganisms and foreign matter.

Mineral salt - A natural saline solution comprising natural minerals, which is isotonic to the body mucosa and aids in nasal discharge.

Citrus Grandis - is a natural anti microbial ingredient which has bactericidal properties against Strep, Staph, Salmonella, E. Coli, Influenza, and parasites, associated with nose and throat infections. It is effective against more than 800 bacterial and viral organisms, 100 strains of fungus, and a large number of single-cell and multi-celled parasites. To date there is no evidence that any type of pathogenic microorganism has ever built up a resistance to citrus grandis. Due to the mode of its activity, it is believed that this resistance is impossible as CG disrupts the organisms cytoplasmic membrane No! – It can be used for nasal congestion, hayfever, colds
