is an immunostimulating homeopathic remedy which has been scientifically proven to significantly reduce the duration and severity of symptoms during an acute viral infection (when given as a treatment) and help protect against subsequent infections (when given as prophylaxis).

What does Engystol do?

The aim of treatment with Engystol is to activate and support the body’s endogenous defense mechanisms, in example, to:

  • Strengthen the natural immune response in cases of viral invasion, resulting in milder symptoms and shorter recovery times.
  • Protect against subsequent infections.

For example, taken either preventively or at the first signs of a cold, Engystol has been used empirically to prevent the development of acute symptoms.

Antiviral activity of Engystol

Basic research has revealed the activity of Engystol against viruses, such as adenovirus Type 5, Herpes Simplex Virus type 1 (HSV 1) and Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), and Human Rhino Virus (HRV).

In a clinical setting, Engystol has also been shown to shorten the time of infection and reduce antibody titres against influenza A.

These results were observed via a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial for the prophylaxis of flu (influenza) and the common cold.

  • Patients with pre-existing medical conditions, or those over 65 years of age, who might be more susceptible to viral infections, e.g., in winter.
  • Primarily healthy younger children who might be susceptible to viral infections, e.g., RSV, in the winter season.
  • The entire family with viral infections.
