Mode PELARGONIUM cough RATIOPHARM  of action:
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
An extract from pelargonium prevents bacteria and viruses from attaching themselves to the human host cell and then being able to penetrate. This antimicrobial effect is supported by the protein-precipitating properties of the tannins and essential oils also contained, which ultimately lead to the bacteria being destroyed.
