    Support Your Body's Natural Defense

    We've sent man to the moon. We've mapped the human genome. And we've eradicated many diseases. But one crowning scientific achievement that continues to elude us is curing the common cold. Colds can make you feel lousy, in more ways than one. For example, if you don't have the luxury of paid sick leave, a week-long cold can cause financial stress.

    If you are looking for a natural way to support your immune function, our all natural Chinese herbal supplement, InflamClear™, may help.

    Signature Formula Clears Toxic Heat

    InflamClear is a special blend of Chinese herbs. Its primary action is removing toxic heat. According to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) theory, when external pathogenic factors, referred as Wind in TCM, strike the body, they invade it progressively from its surface to the deep layers, generating signs include sore throat, swollen tonsils, mild fever and yellow nasal discharge etc. These signs are called Wind Heat or toxic heat in TCM and are part of the body's inflammation response in modern biomedical terms.

    Meanwhile, the body mobilizes its immune system to fight the invasion. What InflamClear does is to help rally your body's natural ability to defend itself.

    How Does InflamClear Work?

    InflamClear is composed of 4 Chinese herbs that are shown clinically capable of clearing invading toxic forces.

    Chuan Xin Lian (Andrographis) is one of the most widely used herbs in TCM. It is a heat-clearing and detoxifying herb that is used especially for removing heat in the lung and cough caused by lung heat. Pu Gong Ying (Dandelion) clears heat and drains fire. In TCM applications, it's used for sore throat, and swelling in the tonsils. Xia Ku Cao (Prunella) clears Liver fire and reduces swelling. The fourth herb in the formula, Bai Hua She She Cao (Snake tongue Grass) also removes toxic heat as well as dampness. This herb is commonly used in TCM for sore throats and cough from Lung heat.

    Does Research Supports InflamClear?

    All four herbs in this formula have been shown in studies to possess inhibitory roles against bacteria. To be clear, they do not kill viruses or bacteria directly, rather they appear to support a healthy immune response of the body. Among them, andrographis (Chuan Xin Lian) is extensively studied for its clinical application for acute respiratory tract in China. 1 Noticeably, Andrographolide, an active ingredient isolated from andrographis appears to have anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory effects among other benefits. 2,3

    InflamClear™ (Chuan Xin Lian Kang Yan Pian) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from InflamClear I put an extensive review in here about this herb years ago, but here's a more concise version. This is a wonderful anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-inflam herb that can be used preventatively or instead of cold or flu medicine itself. It doesn't work on certain flu strains, but very seriously, I've been using this herb in combination with another Chinese herb called Cholinex for around 20 years, and I take it upon first inkling of any incoming symptom: fatique, sore throat, sinus clog, etc. This will either shorten flu or cold period, or, more often in my experience, completely wipe it out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent results Woke up yesterday morning with a sore throat and other classic symptoms of a wind-heat attack (Chills and fever, runny nose, headache, etc.). Fought it off successfully using a combination your Yin Qiao Jie Du Pian and Chuan Xin Lian Kang Yan Pian. Very satisfied. Took 4 5-tablet doses of each of these formulas yesterday. Symptoms remained very muted; they began to taper off in late afternoon and are gone this morning. Can recommend this combination as one of the most effective cold remedies I've ever used.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful for skin issues in the lower part of the body recommended this supplement by my acupuncturist who said i had damp heat in my liver. I took 15 pills at a time sometimes 20 along with Sarcandra herb which is great for relieving hsv-1 and hsv-2. I am now using this as a daily method for maintaining outbreak free health. I use these herbs in conjunction with acupuncture 1-2 times a week.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life saver for Cold season My family is taking Inflamclear for over eight years. At the onset of a cold we take 9 tablets and then two to three times a day 7 tablets. In most cases we never get the cold and very few times if we did, it cut the duration of the cold symptoms in half or less. It is an excellent product and we cannot imagine to be without it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really works I started using this herb upon recommendation from my acupuncturist. When ever I start feeling one of those nasty, hard to swallow, feels like fire in the back of my throat, sore throats coming on I start taking double the amount recommended on the back. Each time, within 24 hours, all symptoms are gone. I'm a teacher and a vocalist. This has been a voice saver.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from True Cure for the Common Cold If there is such a thing as a "cold"; it's all virus. Some flus are worse than others, but this product from Active Herb, which is a great store, is a must-have. Used to buy it from my acupuncture guy who charged $30 a bottle. I use it like this: You start to feel hot, fatigued and that flu everyone's got coming in at you -- IMMEDIATELY pop down 10 of these babies, every 2-4 hours, and I take it IN CONCERT WITH CHOLINEX (NIU HUANG JIE DU PIAN) 100 tablets per box from Amazon's LTGDepot, and I'm telling you, your crud is OVERWITH, most of the time, over night. I hate to plug another product, and I'd buy it from Active Herb if they carried it, but this stuff is necessary to take with these little brown pills in order to be effective in knocking out tough flu virus, or bacterial infections. If you wait until you actually have it, this will shorten the length it stays with you. But get it right away ---- why suffer with illness you don't need? For sore throat, put 2 or 3 of them under your tongue, during the day and also while you sleep and let them dissolve. They don't taste great, just a bit bitter, but man, your sore throat is GONE. What these herbs do is kick your immune system into high gear so you actually do the work. This herb, medicinally, will not hurt you; nor does it actually kill virus or bacteria. It prompts YOU to do it, and it works. Usually, my wife, on day 3 of this, will get a little, mild intestinal upset from this herbal mix because she has a very delicate system. I on the other hand, never do, ever. The AMA will never sanction this as an actual medicine, because it can't sell it. But this is the only thing that is natural that will work on your "cold" or flu. Airborne or Cold-eze, anything with Zinc or any of that pharmacy over the counter garbage is just that, useless garbage.
