This unique Chinese formula helps relieve body stress associated with the onset of commons cold and the flu.
Gan Mao Ling is an all-natural Chinese herbal formula used to release the exterior and clear heat and toxins from the body, and is recommended to be taken at the first sign of cold/flu symptoms.
Gan Mao Ling is recommended in the early stage of a cold, usually the first 24 to 36 hours, when symptoms of sore throat, runny nose or slight malaise are noticed...Gan Mao Ling can be used for the duration of the cold, if the symptoms are confined to the throat and sinuses. Once the cold enters the lungs, different formulas are required."
According to Chinese medical theory, cold and flu viruses are abundant in the air we breathe and the "wind" blowing into our nose and mouth may drive the pathogen deep into the body. Once inside the body, the cold/flu virus can trigger an upper respiratory tract infection, sore throat, cough, stuffy nose and a host of other symptoms. While it's unlikely that any substance can prevent or cure the common cold or flu, the Chinese believe that herbal patent formulas such as Gan Mao Ling may be useful in lessening the severity of cold/flu symptoms by providing strength and nourishment immediately after the body becomes infected.
Chinese herbalists believe that cold/flu germs remain on the "surface" for a short period of time after entering the body. It is during this critical time that herbal formulas such as Gan Mao Ling can be most effective in helping boost the body's immunity. Gan Mao Ling has long been used in China to help the body relieve stress from symptoms associated with both wind-cold (colds) and wind-heat (flu).
Gan Mao Ling can be taken at the early stages of a cold, thoughout the infection, and for a few days afterwards to solidify the healing process. It may also be used preventatively, especially when people around you are sick, or when you are run down and want to stay well.
