Mode of action

The alcoholic extract of the Pelargonium roots has been shown to have a three-way effect:
·        Pelargonium Anti-bacterial: the p.sidoides extract prevents bacteria from sticking to cells in the mucous membranes.
·         Pelargonium Antiviral effect: prevents viruses from attaching to the mucous membrane cells and stimulates the body’s immune system in such a way that both bacteria and viruses are prevented from multiplying
·        Pelargonium Expectorant: the extract acts as an expectorant, allowing the body to expel contaminated mucous making conditions less suitable for the multiplication of the bacteria and viruses.
