Umka Cold Care is Umcka ColdCare

Recover Faster

Umcka ColdCare is a breakthrough natural medicine that actually helps you recover faster. Unlike other cough, cold and sinus remedies that simply mask symptons, Umcka products by Nature’s Way are clinically proven to shorten the duration and reduce the severity of cold, sinus, throat and bronchial illnesses.

Clinically Proven

The Pelargonium Sidoides extract within Umcka has been widely studied by various clinical organizations to not only relieve symptoms associated with common colds, but also shortens the duration and reduces severity of throat, sinus and bronchial irritations.

The Umcka Story

In 1897, Englishman Charles Stevens went to South Africa hoping to cure himself of a respiratory illness. While there, an African tribal healer gave him a remedy made from Pelargonium sidoides roots (a plant native to the coastal regions of South Africa). Fully recovered, Stevens brought the remedy back to England where it became popular as Stevens’ Consumption Cure.

In 1920, Dr. Adrien Sechehaye learned of Stevens’ cure. Over the next nine years he treated more than 800 patients in Switzerland with a homeopathic preparation of P. sidoides roots. But with the advent of synthetic drugs, the remedy was forgotten by Western medicine until its recent rediscovery by European researchers.

This is where the modern story of Umcka® begins. The formula is a clinically proven preparation of Pelargonium sidoides roots, and the name is derived from the African word “umKhulkane” (meaning respiratory infection). Now a leading medicine in Europe, Nature’s Way brings the effectiveness of Umcka to America. Much of Nature’s Way supply of P. sidoides is grown on Nature’s Way farms in South Africa. From the time of planting to harvesting, it takes 3-5 years for the roots to be ready for medicinal extraction.

What Umcka® Treats

Umcka® offers products for both colds and flu. The first step in deciding which products are right for you is to determine if you have a cold or the flu. If you’re not sure, then Umcka® Cold+Flu formulas are the right choice because they contain ingredients that target both.

Cold Relief—Umcka® ColdCare

In an evaluation study, over 90% of patients and attending physicians rated the Pelargonium sidoides extract within Umcka® as an effective treatment for colds and upper respiratory infections.

Umcka ColdCare® with Pelargonium sidoides 1X shortens the duration and reduces the severity of cold, sinus, throat and bronchial symptoms such as:

For Cold and Flu Relief— Try Nature’s Way Umcka Cold + Flu

Umcka® Cold + Flu not only contains Pelargonium sidoides 1X tincture but also the homeopathic ALPHA® CF blend for maximum, multi-action cold and flu relief.

Alpha® CF is a homeopathic blend of 7 tinctures (Aconitum napellus 4X, Bryonia alba 4X, Eucalyptus globulus 2X, Eupatorium perfoliatum 2X, Gelsemium sempervirens 4X, Ipecacuanha 3X and Phosphorus 6X) designed to deliver multi-symptom relief for both colds & flu such as:

A new kind of medicine

Umcka ColdCare® is a 1X tincture of Pelargonium sidoides, a medicinal plant unique to South Africa. In clinical studies, P. sidoides not only relieves symptoms associated with common colds, but also shortens the duration and reduces severity of throat, sinus and bronchial irritations. It also helps loosen mucus, making coughs more productive and naturally relieves congestion, cough, headache, hoarseness and minor aches.

Studies suggest that the active ingredient in Umcka® (EPs 7630) works in several ways. It works on the immune system to help support the body’s own natural antiviral defense mechanisms and acts as an antimicrobial agent. Additionally, it provides mucolytic actions.

Return to work faster: Adults with acute bronchial symptoms were able to return to work nearly two days earlier with P. sidoides.

Shorten duration: Children suffering acute sore throat pain were able to return to school two days sooner with P. sidoides.

Reduce severity: P. sidoides reduces severity of cough, congestion, headache, sore throat and other common symptoms.

High satisfaction: In an evaluation study, over 90% of patients and doctors rated P. sidoides as an effective treatment for colds and upper respiratory irritations.

Umcka Cold Care Relieves Cold & Flu Symptoms

Dosages:

Use at the first sign of symptoms and continue to use for an additional 48 hours after symptoms subside to find the best results.

Adults and children 12 years of age and older can take 1 ml 3 to 5 times daily. Umcka comes in achohol-free drops and syrup.

Dosaging may vary depending on which product you choose. Always read instructions on the product for proper dosing. There are also chewable tablets that can be taken 2-4 times daily. In addition, you can get relief using Umcka hot drink in cherry or lemon flavor. Consult a physician for safety and dosing for children under the age of 12.

Special Notes:

Consult a doctor immediately if a sore throat is severe, persists more than 2 days, and is accompanied or followed by a fever, headache, rash, and nausea or vomiting. You should also consult a doctor if you have a cough that lasts or is chronic such as occurs with smoking, asthma or emphysema.

Also, contact your physician if you experience a cough accompanied by excessive phlegm (mucus). It is also recommended that you stop use of Umcka and consult your doctor if:

symptoms do not get better within 7 days
fever worsens or lasts more than 3 days
new symptoms occur as these could be signs of a serious condition
