Resistance Acute is a modification of the popular Chinese classic formula, Yin QiaoSan, which is traditionally used to treat the first signs of an oncoming cold or flu. By the time we see most patients or people in the clinic to address a flu, their symptoms have progressed beyond the initial stages. As does Yin QiaoJie Du San, a modification of the base formula, Resistance Acute adds herbs to treat more severe symptoms such as high fever or a severe sore and swollen throat. Platycodon is added to help clear any initial cough and phlegm production. Magnolia Flower is included to treat nasal congestion.
Further boosting the potency of Resistance Acute is the addition of a standardized extract of Echinacea Purpura. Hundreds of studies have documented the clinical applications of Echinacea. The most consistently proven effect is in stimulating phagocytosis, that is encouraging white blood cells and lymphocytes to attack invading organisms. It also promotes T-cell activity, reduces inflammation and has anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal actions.
The strong anti-viral and antibacterial effects of Resistance Acute can reduce the severity and durations of infections, including colds, flus, as well as oral or genital herpes.
