CLINICALLY PROVEN 
FAMILY VIRAL DEFENCE

A herbal drug 
for viral colds and flu

PELAFORCE™ is a herbal drug derived from Pelargonium sidoides (P. sidoides), an indigenous plant found only in the grasslands of South Africa and mountains of Lesotho. This remarkable shrub, with its deep purple flowers, silver leaves and red tuberous roots, is sustainably wild harvested in the foothills of the majestic Maluti mountains. 

Results from more than 30 European clinical studies have consistently shown that P. sidoides root extract helps prevent and treat viral colds, flu and respiratory tract infections. Used daily, it offers the whole family year-round viral defence and immune system support.

ANTIVIRAL

Pelargonium sidoides prevents viruses from attaching to cells and replicating.

P. sidoides coats the respiratory tract, preventing the virus from infecting cells. It then instructs the body to destroy already infected cells to prevent replication.

ANTIBACTERIAL

Pelargonium sidoides destroys bacteria and prevents attachment to healthy cells.

P. sidoides stimulates white blood cells to attack bacteria and coats the respiratory tract to prevent bacteria from attaching to healthy cells.

IMMUNE MODULATION

Pelargonium sidoides boosts and balances the immune system with its

PLANT INTELLIGENCE™.

P. sidoides not only boosts your immune system, but also prevents it from becoming overactive, which can be detrimental to your health. This maintains a healthy, balanced immune system.

EXPECTORANT & MUCOLYTIC


Pelargonium sidoides thins and loosens mucus in the

airways.

P. sidoides works by thinning and loosening mucus in the airways, clearing congestion, making breathing easier and expelling pathogens.

PELAFORCE™ ORAL DROPS

FAST ACTING - BIOAVAILABLE

PELAFORCE™ alleviates the symptoms and shortens the duration of the illness by an average of 2 days. PELAFORCE™ is well tolerated and its use is approved approved for children aged three years and older. It has been shown that around 90% of respiratory infections are caused by viruses, rather than bacteria. Antibiotic therapy aims to combat bacteria and is, therefore, usually unnecessary and ineffective in the treatment of viral infections, but it does involve risks. With PELAFORCE™, you choose a herbal treatment without the risk of developing resistance.

PELAFORCE™ GUMMIES

DAILY SUPPORT

PELAFORCE™ gummies are specially formulated to holistically boost your immune system with Pelargonium sidoides, Vitamin D, Vitamin K2, Vitamin C and Zinc.

 

The latest research has shown that Pelargonium sidoides and Vitamin K2 upregulate Vitamin D receptors.

 

In combination, they dramatically increase your Vitamin D blood levels. Together with Pelargonium sidoides' immune support function, this prepares your body to rapidly and effectively deal with any viral load and gives your immune system a chance to produce antibodies for permanent immunity to that viral variant.

Family Portrait

BACK IN ACTION... FASTER

A large number of respiratory tract diseases are caused by viruses. Antibiotic treatment is not intended to treat viral infections. 
If taken in time, as the first symptoms appear, PELAFORCE™ will relieve unpleasant symptoms, such as colds, coughs, congestion and airway pain. Pelargonium sidoides also has direct antibacterial and antiviral properties.
It has been clinically proven, in studies with hundreds of patients, that P. sidoides will shorten the period of incapacity for work & school absence in children.

TESTIMONIALS

“My husband and I began using Pelaforce in November 2020 after a friend, who understands my preference for natural remedies, gave me a bottle. Its anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties are well documented and seemed particularly appealing in a year characterised by a deadly pandemic. Our 30 drops have been an integral part of our daily health regimen for the past 3 months. I did not, however, anticipate that my sinus-related allergies would begin to subside within a week of taking Pelaforce: I no longer battle with an itchy palate and ears, a scratchy throat, watery eyes and uncontrollable sneezing. Needless to say, I'm delighted! I am in the wellness business and I am now actively promoting Pelaforce as I know that if taken daily, it can offer the entire family year-round immune system support. This is an amazing product that everyone should consider taking.”

INSPIRED BY NATURE

THE COLD FACTS

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO HAVE A COLD?

A cold is an inflammation of the mucous membrane in the nose, sinuses and throat. Colds are very contagious and are the most common infections in humans.

WHAT IS THE CAUSE?

A cold is caught by inhaling airborne droplets containing the virus or through contact with contaminated objects, where the viruses are then transferred through the hands to the eyes, mouth or nose.

HOW DO I CATCH A COLD?

A cold is caught by inhaling airborne droplets containing the virus or through contact with contaminated objects, where the viruses are then transferred through the hands to the eyes, mouth or nose.

HOW OFTEN DO WE CATCH A COLD?

Adults contract an average of 2 to 5 colds a year. In children, this can rise to 6 to 10 colds per year.

HOW LONG DOES A COLD LAST?

A cold lasts, on average, no more than 7 to 10 days. However, some symptoms can last up to 3 weeks.

DO ANTIBIOTICS HELP WITH A COLD?

Colds are caused by viruses in 95% of cases. Antibiotics act on bacteria and are, therefore, of no use against a cold. Antibiotics can only be beneficial if there is superinfection (extra infection with complications) of bacteria in addition to a common cold.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A COLD AND A FLU?

Flu is caused by the influenza virus and is characterised by more serious symptoms: a usually rapid onset of a high fever with a very sick feeling and cough. The high fever lasts 2-4 days and often causes headaches and staggered muscle pain. PELAFORCE™ prevents the complications associated with flu.

WHAT CAN I DO FOR PREVENTION?

Washing your hands is the most efficient way to prevent infections. Wash your hands before: 
1. Eating or food preparation
2. Inserting contact lenses 
3. Applying skin care products
4. Treating wounds

CONTRAINDICATIONS?

PELAFORCE™ is not to be used in the following cases: 
1. Hypersensitivity to the active substance or to the excipient
2. Increased tendency to bleeding and application of coagulation-inhibiting drugs 
3. Severe hepatic and renal diseases, as no adequate data are available in these areas 
4. Pregnancy and lactation 
5. Children < 3 years

SPECIAL WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS FOR USE?

In the package leaflet, the patient is advised to consult a doctor immediately if his or her condition does not improve within one week, in case of fever lasting for several days or in case of shortness of breath or bloody sputum.

INTERACTION WITH OTHER MEDICINAL PRODUCTS?

Herbal drugs may interact with certain medication. If chronic medication is being taken, consult a medical practitioner prior to using this product.

PREGNANCY AND LACTATION?

This product should not be used in women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, as there are no data available for these patient groups.

“I can now gratefully say that I have experienced my first ever “wheeze-free” winter thanks to PELAFORCE™. Pelargonium sidoides, the humble hero behind PELAFORCE™, is the epitome of plant power and has been used in traditional South African remedies for centuries. Beyond these herbal health benefits, we strive to uplift those who join us on our journey and to protect the natural world that selflessly supplies its tuberous treasures. Our team envisions a world in which people are powered by plants. I believe that our PELAFORCE™ herbal solution is truly a solution.”

"I believe that every potential health-related ‘issue’ has a cure, and that the cure can be found in nature. All you have to do is be willing to open your eyes to, and harmonise with, the natural abundance of our surroundings. PELAFORCE has been a journey for many and, for me, it has been a symbol of strength. If a tuberous root has the power to assist animal and human life forms and, in some cases, assist in saving a life, what are our physical bodies truly capable of?"
