The Benefits of Engystol & Why to Take It


What is Engystol?

Engystol® 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, ie, 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.
