Connect with COLD-FX


COLD-FX is clinically indicated to help reduce the frequency, severity and duration of cold and flu symptoms.

While flu vaccines are viable preventative measures against specific flu strains, they may not provide protection against all flu strains in the community, nor do they protect from colds or other viruses. Furthermore, the body does not fully develop flu antibodies until approximately 2 weeks after the vaccine is administered, so patients can still be vulnerable to the flu virus for that window of time.

COLD-FX is a way for patients to take a more comprehensive approach in preventing cold and flu symptoms. Here’s what you need to confidently recommend COLD-FX in your practice. Because flu viruses aren’t a one-shot deal.

Active ingredient

Each capsule of COLD-FX is certified to contain a precise amount of CVT-E002TM, a proprietary ChemBioPrint® standardized extract from the root of Panax quinquefolius (North American ginseng, 4:1). As an innate immune modulator, COLD-FX binds to macrophages and dendritic cells, enhancing the body’s immune response. This leads to the enhanced clearance of viruses, resulting in prevention or faster resolution of cold and flu symptoms.

COLD-FX is for adults and children 12 years of age and over.

ChemBioPrint®: A mark of quality

ChemBioPrint® technology, or Chemical and Biological FingerPrinting, was developed to identify the active components of natural ingredients, then fingerprint those components for chemical composition and biological activity.

For COLD-FX, ChemBioPrint® is used to identify and isolate the active ingredient known as CVT-E002TM, a proprietary extract from the root of Panax quinquefolius (North American ginseng, 4:1).

By isolating the active ingredient, ChemBioPrint® allows for a standardized, quality manufacturing process.
