To Whom It May Concern,
I have been using Bactevir during the past three years, usually when I can feel the symptoms beginning of a cold or flu. For me the signs are usually a sore throat, aching body or possibly a runny nose. I immediately commence taking the recommended dose of Bactevir and within 24hours I start to feel some relief. I generally keep taking the recommended dose for another week and by the end of the week all of my symptoms are gone.
I have tried many other natural remedies for cold and flu but this is the only one that is effective and works so quickly for me.
I would not hesitate to recommend this product to any person seeking symptom relief from colds or the flu.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
On Monday night I had the pleasure of attending one of your training sessions which was an effort considering I had been sent home from work that day sick with the flu. I had been using sudafed for 2 days with no relief at all. As soon as I walked in the door Karen heard me speak and said we need to get you some Bactevir tablets. I took 3 tablets straight away and another 3 tablets when I got home from training and the results were nothing short of amazing. I was able to breathe through my nose again, my cough had cleared and I was free of the aches and pains I had been feeling for the last 2 days. So once again thank you, I guarantee that I will be keeping a supply of Bactevir tablets in my cupboard for the rest of the cold and flu season!

Brilliant results, had a deep set flu and within a few days am almost back to normal

Phill from Perth

"During the end of last season I found myself coming down with the cold/flu. I had chills, sweats, headache, and extreme fatigue. With work in full swing, I couldn't afford to take another day off. I decided to try both Bactevir and Viraforce. Taking doses during the day and before bed. Normally with this severity, I would be home for 2-3 days. However I woke up the next day feeling much better and able to go back into work.”
