Andrographis paniculata
Andrographis has been used for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurvedic medicine to support the immune system during cold and flu symptoms. A review of 33 clinical trials across more than 7000 patients found that Andrographis significantly improved the symptoms of acute respiratory tract infections and that it shortened the duration of coughs, sore throats and sick leave/time.1

This is possibly due to the antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties of andrographidoides, the active components in Andrographis,
that support the production of lymphocytes to fight viruses and bacteria.2

Olive Leaf Extract
Olive leaf extract has been used in the Mediterranean traditional medicine for centuries. It can help support the immune system to fight infections caused by a large number of viruses, including influenza and parainfluenza viruses, as well as some bacteria.
The active ingredient oleuropein supports the immune system by blocking the virus from entering the body and replicating, and by supporting phagocytosis.3

Echinacea purpurea
Echinacea has traditionally been used by Native Americans to treat symptoms associated with the common cold, including a sore throat. Current research shows it does this by increasing the response of natural killer cells. It also blocks the action of some viral proteins,4 and can inactivate certain viruses and pathogenic respiratory bacteria, including Streptococcus pyogenes and Hemophilus influenza pathogens.5 Echinacea purpurea might also be able to reduce the secretion of excess mucus.6

Studies have found that taking Echinacea could lower the risk of developing the common cold by up to 50%, and that it may reduce the duration of the common cold by 1-4 days.7-11

Sambucus nigra
The berries of European Elder have a long traditional use in German medicine to treat the common cold and flu. Elderberries are high in flavonoids, which have been shown to stop the viruses from binding to and replicating in host cells, and to activate phagocyte and cytokine production.12-16

Clinical research has found that Elderberry can reduce the symptoms of an upper respiratory infection significantly.17

Zinc
Zinc is necessary for the optimal functioning of the immune system. Studies have shown that zinc inhibits the replication of the rhinovirus.18

A 2011 review of 13 randomized placebo-controlled trials concludes that taking zinc soon after the onset of symptoms of the common cold can significantly reduce both the duration and severity of symptoms.19 A further 2013 review concluded that zinc, taken within 24 hours of onset of symptoms, reduced the duration of common cold symptoms.20
