Zulu cold treatment Kaloba available in UK
A Zulu herbal medicine which has been used by tribes for centuries has been passed for sale in Britain.

Zulus have taken extracts from the geranium plant for hundreds of years to stop coughs and sneezes.

They say the extracts are particularly good at reducing the amount of phlegm.

Now Kaloba, a key ingredient from the flower, has been given the green light for sale in Britain as a medicine.

And because it is a herbal remedy, the manufacturers do not have to prove it is effective, but just that it is safe.

Kaloba is derived from a species of geranium called Pelargonium sidoides and comes in drop and tablet form.

It will cost around ?7.50 for 20 millilitres.

The medicine has been available in Germany since 1983 but has only just been licensed by Britain's Medicines and Health Products Regulatory Agency.

One on four people in England and Wales visit their GP every year for coughs and colds.

Doctors hope an effective herbal remedy can be found over concerns too many antibiotics are prescribed.

Recent finds by NICE - the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence - found that almost ?200 million a year was spent on prescription antibiotics for cold and flue.

Research by the Cochrane Review showed it to be "effective in resolving all symptoms including headaches and nasal discharge in adults when taken for an extended time period."

Another recent study however found Kaloba had "limited effectiveness" when treating coughs and colds.
