4. What does ComfiCoff contain?

ComfiCoff is an herbal and homeopathic remedy containing:

  • Marshmallow (Althea officinalis) has been used since ancient Greek and Roman times. It contains large sugar molecules called mucilage which exert a soothing effect on mucous membranes (Rosik JK, Kardosová A, Toman R, Capek P. "Isolation and characterization ofmucilages from Althaea officinalis L. and Malva silvestris L., ssp. Mauritiana" (L.) Thell. Cesk Farm. 1984;33:68-71).
  • Hyssop (Hyssopus officinalis) is used to assist the body to maintain respiratory and immune system health (Gollapudi, S., Sharma, H. A., Aggarwal, S., Byers, L. D., Ensley, H. E., and Gupta, S. "Isolation of a previously unidentified polysaccharide (MAR-10) from Hyssop officinalis that exhibits strong activity against human immunodeficiency virus type 1." Biochem.Biophys.Res.Commun. 5-5-1995;210(1):145-151.).
  • Elder (Sambucus nigra) is a well-known tonic for the throat and respiratory tract. It is also a valuable aid to keep the respiratory tract clear and free of phlegm and congestion. Research has suggested that Sambucus nigra also contains compounds that support the immune system (Zakay-Rones Z, Varsano N, Zlotnik M, et al. "Inhibition of several strains of influenza virus in vitro and reduction of symptoms by an elderberry extract (Sambucus nigra L.) during an outbreak of influenza B Panama". J Altern Complement Med 1995;1(4):361-369).
  • Horehound (Marrubium vulgare) has also been used throughout most of history and was well respected in Egyptian and ancient Roman times. It has been studied for its excellent respiratory and lung supporting properties (Schlemper V, Ribas A, Nicolau M, et al. "Antispasmodic effects of hydroalcoholic extract of Marrubium vulgare on isolated tissues". Phytomedicine 1996;3(2):211-216.) (Karryvev MO, Bairyev CB, Ataeva AS. "Some therapeutic properties of common horehound." Chem Abstr 1977;86:2355.).
  • Licorice Root (Glycyrrhiza glabra) is a highly respected remedy with a variety of uses. Apart from strengthening the action of other herbs, licorice has long been known for its ability to soothe and calm the respiratory tract. In addition Licorice root supports the functioning of the immune system (Amaryan G, Astvatsatryan V, Gabrielyan E, et al. "Double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized, pilot clinical trial of ImmunoGuard--a standardized fixed combination of Andrographis paniculata Nees, with Eleutherococcus senticosus Maxim, Schizandra chinensis Bail. and Glycyrrhiza glabra L. extracts in patients with Familial Mediterranean Fever." Phytomedicine 2003;10(4):271-285.).
  • Pulsatilla (30C) is useful for maintaining the health of the throat and chest. In addition it supports harmony and feelings of well-being (Colin P. Homeopathy and respiratory allergies: a series of 147 cases. Homeopathy. 2006 Apr;95(2):68-72. Comment in: Homeopathy. 2006 Apr;95(2):65-7.).
  • Bryonia (30C) is very effective in maintaining respiratory health, and supporting throats and chests (Mahasneh, A. M. and El Oqlah, A. A. Antimicrobial activity of extracts of herbal plants used in the traditional medicine of Jordan. J.Ethnopharmacol. 1999;64(3):271-276.).
  • Kali mur (6C) is a biochemic tissue salt that is very useful in keeping chests and throats clear.
  • Ferrum phos (6C) is another biochemic tissue salt which has many uses in the body. The most important benefits are in the ability of Ferrum phos to maintain the health of the immune system. An excellent tissue salt for the maintenance of respiratory health, Ferrum phos is often seen as one of the most important tissue salts to keep in the family medicine chest.
