We’re always on the look-out for products which are safe to take.

Every year, we spend a small fortune fighting viruses, with many medicines having a limited effect and some containing potentially harmful ingredients too.

Linctomed Syrup is a safe and all-natural cough and cold preparation suitable for the entire family – and it works.

Why is it so effective?

Linctomed contains the herbal root African Geranium (Pelargonium Sidoides Radix), used for centuries by the Zulu people to treat upper respiratory tract infections, common colds, coughs, tuberculosis and gastro-intestinal illnesses.

Pelargonium is antiviral, antibacterial and acts as an expectorant, giving it a unique triple-action effect against disease. It acts as a natural immune booster, helping to prevent re-infection and assist the body in combating germs.

The root has been prescribed over-the-counter in Germany for nearly three decades, with German doctors noting its powerful effectiveness against respiratory tract, throat and sinus infections.

It has also been used to treat children as young as six who have responded poorly to antibiotics.

Also containing Echinacea Purpurea Herba, which strengthens the immune defence system and has an ideal bacteriostatic** effect on children, Linctomed is the ideal choice for use during colds, flu and acute and chronic respiratory tract infections such as bronchitis, sinusitis, pneumonia, tonsillitis and sore throat.

The cherry-flavoured liquid is also a hit with children, who are prone to catching an average three to eight colds per year, according to the US National Library of Medicine’s National Institute of Health.*

    Hi I have had a very bad cough every morning for the past 18 months. I have had lung exrays and my lungs are clear. Dr thinks it is infected sinus’ the cough is getting progressively worse but once the phelm is out there is no more coughing. When I went for the flu injection at the
    Pick n Pay I was given a tube of LInctomed C and I noticed that it says also for. Hayfever. I looked it up on the internet and discovered also for Sinusitus. Last night I took a tablet at about 8pm and this morning I did not cough. Could it be this tablet?????? That would be truly wonderful. Just for the record I am 74 years old and live in Doonside South Africa.
