Being laid low by colds and flu is a common problem worldwide. In the United States alone, there are more than one billion colds reported each year* – meaning that you and your children are probably more likely to catch one than any other illness!

Linctomed Syrup is a unique, cherry-flavoured treatment designed to nip nasty germs in the bud.
A powerful, all-natural cough and cold preparation for the whole family, Linctomed may be used during colds, flu and acute and chronic respiratory tract infections such as bronchitis, sinusitis, pneumonia, tonsillitis and sore throat.

The main ingredient, African Geranium (Pelargonium Sidoides Radix) is a natural remedy for the common cold and flu, while Echinacea Purpurea Herba strengthens the immune defence system and has an ideal bacteriostatic** effect on children. 

Finding the right remedy for your infection is key to fighting it from the start.  

Children alone average three to eight colds per year, according to the US National Library of Medicine’s National Institutes of Health*.
The virus becomes a vicious cycle, with children, parents and co-workers contracting infections from each other. Colds are a primary reason for missed days at work and school.

Dosage and directions for use
Acute respiratory tract infections : one to two medicine measures 3 x daily.
Chronic respiratory tract infections : one medicine measure 3 x daily.
Children 6 – 12 years : half to one medicine measure 3 x daily.

**Bacteriostatic: capable of inhibiting the growth or reproduction of bacteria (www.medterms.com)
