Why choose Pentagen for your family?

Clinical trials have shown standardized extracts of Pelargonium sidoides to safely and effectively shorten the severity and duration of acute bronchitis and tonsillopharyngitis. Perhaps most notable has been the rapid recovery noted for children with non-group A beta-haemolytic streptococcus tonsillopharyngitis.

In Pentagen these scientifically proven antibacterial and immune modulatory properties of Pelargonium sidoides are further complemented by key homoeopathic ingredients.
