New Chapter Supercritical Herbal Extracts
"Supercritical" means Super Purity, Super Potency, Broad Spectrum, and No Chemical Solvents. We take nature's finest herbs and then extract and highly concentrate (as high as 250 to 1) their precious ingredients. We do not isolate single ingredients or spike our extracts with synthesized additives. We deliver the wisdom of nature with the complexity and organic nuances of the natural herb preserved for you. In fact, the supercritical process is the gentlest way to extract these delicate plant compounds in a manner to optimally preserve their potency and stability. And when you take New Chapter's supercritical extracts, neither you, nor the environment, have to contend with chemical solvents.
A Supercritical New Chapter in Immune Enhancement
Even though the world is a wonderful place, it is filled with unfriendly bacteria and viruses that exist to make us sick. Certain herbs are traditionally respected and scientifically studied to enhance our immune systems and strengthen our resistance. From India and Ayurvedic medicine comes Andrographis paniculata, which we extract to provide Potency Assured levels of andrographolides to modulate immune functioning. From China we benefit from astragalus, an adaptogen that promotes immune strength and enhances natural killer cell capabilities. From Europe and Western herbal traditions we find immune support from oregano, garlic, echinacea, goldenseal, and elderberry. From Japan we treasure the immune balancing power of green tea. The world offers comfort during times of challenge from herbs rich with salicin, such as wintergreen, purple willow, and meadowsweet. And our dear friend ginger, which we grow on our organic farm in Costa Rica, invigorates us and brings its herbal cousins to life. A world of herbal support for a world full of pathogens! With Supercritical Sinus and Respiratory, we're ready for the challenge.

Start taking this at the first sign of a cold and it will surely help you fight it off if you start taking it in time. It still helps reduce the duration of the cold or flu even if you dont start it in time. It helped me and my daughter who both have sinus, asthma, and allergy problems. Its better than any OTC meds I have ever bought.
This product really does help get over colds & flus faster & with less overall discomfort. If I don't act fast enough to prevent getting sick in the first place (with Yin Chaio) then this and Umcka get me well. It is a staple in my medicine cabinet.

This item has been discontinued but Iherb has many similar items that are just as good!
Good not brilliant

Dr.Michael Murray respiratory formula is much better. Didn't notice much improvement with this but helped a bit. I have worked for two of Dublin’s top health stores for 10 years and am now a holistic practitioner. I hope you found this review helpful.

It's weird, coz the ingredients seem really good and I trust the quality of product from this company. But as mentioned, my hubby had two full-blown flus (respiratory infections) with severe nasal congestion, breathing difficulty, fever and cough for two weeks while on this and this product did not help at all. I thought it would also help strengthen the immune system which will prevent or help one recover from respiratory infection, but it did not do that either. It's disappointing coz the product is pricey and I was hoping it'd help.
