What ingredients are good for cold & flu?

Siberian ginseng (Eleutherococcus senticosus) has been well studied. Researchers found that Siberian ginseng worked as an immune system booster by causing a large “increase in the absolute number of immunocompetent cells, with an especially pronounced effect on T lymphocytes, predominantly of the helper/inducer type, and also on cytotoxic and natural killer cells of healthy volunteers” [1].

Studies into spearmint (Mentha spicata) found it had potent antimicrobial, anticancer and anti-inflammatory properties [2].

Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) has traditionally been used to alleviate coughs and fever [3].

A systematic review of 109 randomised controlled trials in 2020, concluded that there was solid scientific evidence that ginger (Zingiber officinale) reduced inflammation in the body [4] which is in part responsible for some of the symptoms that we feel when we become ill.
