What's It For?
A herbal remedy providing supportive therapy for colds and chronic infections of the respiratory tract. Echinacea is also a powerful enhancer of the immune system.
Active Ingredients Per Tablet:
Echinacea purpurea (Echinacea) extract
equivalent to dry whole plant 1 g (1000 mg)
Allium sativum (Garlic) freeze-dried powder 200 mg
equivalent to fresh bulb 600 mg
(standardised to contain alliin 5mg)
(equivalent to allicin 2.4 mg).
Special Features and Benefits:
Garlix contains both alliin and allinase and exhibits a standardised allicin-releasing potential equivalent to 2.4 mg of allicin per tablet (allicin is one of the sulphur-containing compounds responsible for the antimicrobial action of garlic).
Low odour, high potency.
High dose provides therapeutic action for the treatment of colds
Enteric-coated to ensure that the product is not absorbed until it reaches the intestine where it is needed, thereby minimising odour.
Mode of Action:
Echinacea has been extensively investigated and is known to have a variety of actions on the immune system, including elevation of serum white blood cell count (when numbers are low), promotion of non-specific T-cell activation (leading to a range of other activities including increased activity of natural killer cells and stimulating the release of interferon), enhancement of macrophage activity, as well as having antibacterial and antiviral properties. It is indicated for the relief of symptoms of infections, particularly those of the upper respiratory tract such as cold, flu and sinusitis. Garlic exhibits broad-spectrum antimicrobial and antibacterial activity and is particularly active against the influenza virus. It is also indicated for the temporary relief of symptoms of other infections especially those in the respiratory tract, including bronchitis, sinusitis and colds. Allicin (an unstable compound formed by the enzymatic action of allinase on alliin), is required to be present for the antimicrobial activity of garlic to take place.
Contraindications and Cautions:
If symptoms persist, see your healthcare professional.
Discontinue use at least 2 weeks before surgery. Garlic may increase the risk of bleeding associated with surgery.
Always read the label. Use only as directed.
None noted in the literature at the recommended dosage.
Consult your healthcare professional before use if taking warfarin. Garlic may increase the risk of bleeding with this medication.
