No family should be without a stock of Congaplex by Standard Process. This is particularly true of families with infants and children.
Congaplex is really a combination product of three products in one: one third Cataplex ACP, one third Thymex, and one third Calcium Lactate. Basically it is the whole vitamins A and C and bioflavonoids combined with calcium lactate and extract of the thymus gland. It really packs a punch.
Today there are hundreds of “natural” cold and flu remedies. Most are useless, all are overpriced and most do not contain what the label says. There is ascorbic acid, mushroom extracts, bioflavonoids, antioxidants and literally thousands of different concoctions on the shelves. There are also hundreds of over the counter cold remedies that mask the symptoms of colds and usually stymie the immune system, actually prolonging the cold or flu. You doctor has nothing to give you for a cold. Antibiotics are useless against viruses and taking aspirin for fevers is usually not warranted, since it interferes with you body’s natural immune function against viruses.
