Clinical Trials
Kaloba® has been extensively studied. Studies done on patients with acute bronchitis and acute sinusitis have shown that Kaloba® helps to reduce the severity of symptoms and reduce recovery times.

Not only has Kaloba® been clinically proven to help provide relief of acute bronchitis symptoms after 7 days (45% of the patients taking Kaloba® experienced recovery after 7 days compared to 6.4% taking a placebo), it can help speed up recovery too (1-4).

I've just been reccomended to give my 4month old 4 drops (he weighs 5.7kg) of this by a naturopath working in a chemist. My baby has a very bad sinus and a small cough. will this be ok for him?
Does this product contain gluten in any form eg. Is it suitable for coeliacs? Thank you
How about citing the clinical trials or "evidence"?
could i give it to my old dog with chronic bronchitis
