to support the effective treatment of Lyme disease
Natural nutritional supplement for supportive treatment of Lyme disease
CPN plus is a natural nutritional supplement with specially selected ingredients, based on scientific studies, for the supportive treatment of Lyme disease.
Our nutritional supplement to support the treatment of Lyme disease, CPN plus, contains nasturtium, horseradish, L-glutathione, Vitamin C, fennel, aniseed, thyme, zinc and selenium.
Horseradish extract is used in combination with nasturtium extract as a phytotherapy for treatment of urinary tract and respiratory infections.
A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial with 174 test persons confirmed the efficacy and safety profile of nasturtium and horseradish for urinary tract infections. Another similar trial with 351 participants also confirmed that taking nasturtium and horseradish to prevent respiratory infections was equally as safe and effective. In-vitro studies show that a combination of both plant substances provides a broad antibacterial effect which covers 13 clinically relevant strains of bacteria, including MRSA and pseudomonas aeruginosa.
In addition, nasturtium extract can lead to milder symptoms in cold ailments of the respiratory tract e.g. reducing sinusitis and bronchitis. This is proven by a prospective cohort study with 858 test persons. The extract also has effects similar to those of antibiotics.
Persons suffering from acute stomach or intestinal tumors should not take this.
