Pelargonium Sidoides is a type of herb indicated for treating acute and chronic infections of the respiratory tract and ear, nose and throat infections such as rhinopharyngitis, tonsillitis, sinusitis and bronchitis.
The immune system is made up of cells, tissues and organs that act in the organism’s defense against the harmful effects of external microorganisms. The supplements indicated for immunity act as strengthening agents of this system, increasing the antibodies production and, consequently, its defense activity.
Pelargonium sidoides is an herb long used in South African traditional medicine. Its extract is known to neutralize certain bacteria and viruses. P. sidoides may decrease the duration of a cold or sinus infection and it may also help relieve the symptoms of bronchitis.
Pelargonium Sidoides seems to be very well tolerated by most group studies, there might be gastrointestinal upset if taken in high doses, but it can be fixed by ending supplementation. There might be interactions with liver overload in people with liver diseases, but more research is needed to confirm that.
