Natoguard AMP-UP, a rich mix of traditional ingredients which are proven in the treatment of viral infections including respiratory infections like cold, sinusitis, influenza And prophylatic use.
Inspired by effectiveness of traditional Indian System of medicine like Nilavembu Kudineer and Kabha Jura Kudineer in treatment of various viral infections, the key ingredients have been selected to be part of Natoguard AMP-UP.
Nilavembu Kudineer – a Siddha Polyherbal formulation, is a decoction concentrate widely used in Siddha Medicine to combat major type(s) of fevers including viral origin such as Dengue.
Kabha Jura Kudineer – a Siddha Polyherbal formulation,isa decoction used for management of many types of fever and flu with respiratory complications.
While a rapid and well-coordinated immune response represents the first line of defense against such viral infections, excessive inflammatory innate response and impaired adaptive host immune defense may lead to tissue damage both at the site of virus entry and at systemic level. In particular, the massive cytokine and chemokine release, the so-called “cytokine storm”, clearly reflects a widespread uncontrolled dysregulation of the host immune defense.
One of the key ingredient, Andrographis Paniculata has immune modulatory properties that help improve innate and adaptive immunity enabling to fight the pathogens. Andrographis Paniculata was proposed as a potent stimulator of immune system by two approaches. The first was an antigen specific response; antibodies were made to counteract invading microbes. Second was a non specific immune response; macrophage cells scavenged and destroyed invaders.
Apart from its anti-inflammatory effects, andrographolide also exhibits immunomodulatory effects by effectively enhancing cytotoxic T cells, natural killer (NK) cells, phagocytosis, and antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC). All these properties of andrographolide form the foundation for the use of this compound to restrain virus replication and virus-induced pathogenesis.
Adhatoda vasica is bitter in taste and turns into hot potency. It is also an expectorant.Studies suggest that extracts have strong anti-influenza virus activity that can inhibit viral attachment and/or viral replication, and may be used as viral prophylaxis.
Licorice/Glycyrrhiza Gabra, its antiviral action may be due in part to the inhibition of virulence factors such as the hemagglutin proteins on the viral capsule. It remains an excellent demulcent for people of all ages and reliably loosens the dry cough within a day or at most two.
Withania Somnifera - is an immune amphoteric, both stimulating immune response in low immune states and exerting an immunosuppressive action on B and T cell activity in hyper-immune/autoimmune states.
Boswellia serratais a tree gum extract that has been shown to inhibit Th1 cytokines and promotes Th2 cytokines, which helps to reverse the imbalance of Th1 and Th2 that increases inflammation.
Natoguard AMP-UP, with a combination of these herbs with antiviral properties and immunomodulatory action to regulate the immune system helps in managing the respiratory viral infections.
It is important to note that these polyherbal combination needs to be taken during winter or onset of viral infection.
However, after this period it is better to continue with Natoguard tablets on regular basis for better immune health. And Natoguard AMP-UP be called upon when necessary.
