COLD & FLU GUARD™ is a medical device, available as an oral and nasal spray in Canada and Europe, that forms a protective barrier against multiple pathogens, so you can feel confident living your life. Because today, feeling sick isn’t an option anymore.
COLD & FLU GUARD™ contains a patented bioflavonoids formulation made of citrus extract called Flavobac™. Studies conducted by independent laboratories have demonstrated the efficacy of Flavobac™ against the most common strains of respiratory viruses.
COLD & FLU GUARD™ is designed to be applied directly in the most common route of respiratory viral infection, the mouth and the nose.
