BEWARE!!! Anaphylactic reaction

published

I’ve taken this product with success a couple of times now. Everyone around is dropping with colds and flu’s so I popped one tablet last night.
Within 10 minutes I was violently sneezing followed by insane itching all over my body, red rash swollen legs feet hands face I took 2 phenergan tablets and called an ambulance as my airway was starting to feel tight! I’ve never in my life had a allergic reaction to anything very scary and expensive $435.00 in hospital excess

About an hour after taking my torso and back became red, hot and itchy!!! I am allergic to some ingredient. Had to take an antihistamine to calm down. just be careful.

Warning! Severe Allergic reaction

published

About 15 mins after taking the tablet my temperature rose significantly, and I began sweating profusely. Both my palms became extremely itchy. I then started throwing up and diarrhoea followed, both happening simultaneously. I started to have severe cramping and felt like I was going to pass out. I honestly have never felt so awful in my life. There is little to no information about the possible side effects of this product and the potential anaphylaxis it can cause. Be very aware of the side effects!

Caution

published

Bought this after being led to believe these sorts of things are good for you. 2 shots of Adrenalin later and a day in hospital changed my mind. Im not saying its terrible stuff but be aware these types of drugs can potentially kill.
Im 37 years old. Healthy and lucky to be alive after taking the prescribed dosage. Just because its natural does not mean its safe for everyone. The doctors in the hospital told me they believe these types of products shouldn't be sold.

Highly Recommend

published

I struggled with colds on and off quite frequently and since taking my immune defence tablets about 6 months ago (1 a day if I remember) I haven't suffered with a cold since! If I ever feel a cold coming on, I'll start taking 2 a day until symptoms go away - it never eventuates into an actual cold though. On the downside, they taste disgusting! So once you get past the taste, texture and size of these things, they'll do wonders. Highly recommend :)

Amazing stuff!!!

published

After 1 year of persistent and non stop mouth ulcers, I took this product to try to boost my immune system. It had the completely unexpected result of clearing up my painful mouth ulcers. It's been 2 months now (2 tabs of this a day with food) with no ulcers. Words can't express how thankful I am to this product and the makers of this product for taking away my painful mouth problems

Im a skeptic so no placebo

published

My mum first gave this to me and she's into all sorts of weird remedies so i was rather skeptical at best. Some recommendations for taking is after food in my opinion just because vitamin B can churn my stomach when empty otherwise no side affect. When taking this product don't wait until you are already I take when I first get any symptom like sore throat. Stops it in its tracks everytime.

Unfortunately, I was allergic to something in it, didnt help me as I ended up sicker than I already was, but who would have guessed eh, but have heard others swear by it.

published

Recently had the flu shot and have had since a cold this product was recommended by chemist and close friend well 4 day of taking 2 tablets per day sore throat gone, runny nose and cough still there it has stopped it getting worse but my cold has only improved slightly I am really disappointed as i have used a number of products from ethical nutrients and always been really happy until now

This is good stuff

published

I first started using this product because I fell sick from the flu quite often. I thought my immune system needed some supplements to cope. I started taking one every day (usually in the mornings) and my flu got better. After one month, I was feeling good and during last winter, I did not fall sick at all. I was quite happy with it.

Usual Skeptic

published

I am on day 3 of a cold, I feel it has made a huge difference. I started taking it at the first signs, yesterday I couldn't get out of bed and was miserable. Today much better. I am up and still have symptoms but not as severe at all. I usually don't believe in these things but gave it a try as my high blood pressure means in cannot take cold relief medications. I have changed my mind now, I feel it really works.

Most effective remedy I have come across

published

Just recovering from a typical 7-10 day cold. It's been 5 days and I'm nearly back to healthy, definately reduced sinus blockage, and general feeling of malaise! Couldn't recommend this more. The dose of andrographis is 6g which is far far more than in any other andrographis preparation I've come across.

I’ve had a strong cough since taking this medication. Have there been any other reports?

Best to check with a pharmacist, it always helped with my cold and flu symptoms up until i had an alergic itch and rash reaction to it. I swore by it up until then. I just wanted people to be aware of reactions that can happen. I took it for many years before i had this reaction. Sorry i cant help.

Ethical Nutrients
Ethical N.Ethical Nutrients

We would recommend to stop the product until the cough disappears and then to re-trial Immune Defence at a half dose. If the cough or alternatively a sensation occurs in the throat we would recommend to cease the product and return to the place of purchase to discuss the symptoms with the pharmacist or pharmacy assistant.
I can confirm that the ingredients within Ethical Nutrients Immune Defence are regularly tested for purity and potency and are confirmed as safe. In addition, all ingredients have shown benefit in both research and clinical settings. However, at times people can respond in a different way to herbal ingredients, due to individual body responses.

Hi! I do not think so. You are better off looking for something more specific than Immune Defence.
