Mode of action Bronchitis, Acute bronchitis treatment pelargonium sidoides, UMCKALOABO 20 mg:

How does the ingredient in the drug work?

The ingredients come from the pelargonium plant and act as a natural mixture. About the plant itself:

- Appearance: perennial, approx. 50 cm high plant with small, heart-shaped leaves, resembles a small balcony geranium
- Occurrence: South Africa
- Main ingredients: coumarins (umckalin), tannins, essential oils
- Plant parts and preparations used: root extracts

Umckaloabo ®

How to recognize a respiratory infection of the bronchi
A cold often starts with a sore throat. Children, the elderly and people with a weakened immune system are particularly susceptible. And if the cold viruses also get into the bronchial tubes in the case of a respiratory infection, the cold symptoms generally get worse. This leads to a dry, irritating cough and often to a strong build-up of mucus. Fever, fatigue or headaches can also occur. Basically, if a cold lasts longer than seven days, the symptoms worsen significantly or the fever persists for several days, a doctor should make an accurate diagnosis. The same applies if shortness of breath or bloody sputum occurs.

Viruses are the main cause of respiratory infections
Only a small proportion of 5-10% of respiratory infections are caused by bacteria. The rest, i.e. more than 90-95%, is caused by a viral infection. Antibiotics only work against bacteria, so treatment with them only makes sense in a few cases.

Effectively combating respiratory infections of the bronchi
Umckaloabo® works against viruses that settle in the bronchi. In addition, extract from the roots of Cape geranium helps loosen stuck mucus and reduce the overall duration of the disease. Umckaloabo® is very well tolerated and can be used in children from the age of one. Children under the age of six should be treated in consultation with a doctor.

The right thing for every patient: three different dosage forms
Umckaloabo® is characterized by good tolerability and is available in different dosage forms. The following applies to all three: Even after the symptoms have subsided, Umckaloabo® should be taken for a few more days. In this way, a relapse can be avoided.

  • Umckaloabo ® drops: Applicable to children from 1 year, adolescents and adults through an age-appropriate dosage.
  • Umckaloabo ® film tablets: The special extract in the form of an alcohol-free and gluten-free tablet is ideal for people who travel or travel a lot.
  • Umckaloabo ® juice for children: The juice is free from alcohol, gluten and lactose. A pipette and a dosing cup make it easier to administer medication.
