A licensed herbal medicine means a safe, high quality product

Kaloba Pelargonium Cough & Cold Relief Oral Drops have been registered under the Traditional Herbal Registration Scheme (THRS), a regulatory approval process for herbal treatments in the EU. Registration under this scheme primarily means that:

  • Kaloba is a regulated herbal product and meets specific standards of safety and quality
  • Kaloba is of pharmaceutical quality and has been manufactured to European Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Guidelines

The quality of many herbal products on the UK market at present is unknown and there are no independent quality and safety checks available to offer you reassurance about these products. Kaloba’s registration under the THRS scheme provides you with the reassurance that it has been assessed by the MHRA and meets the required standard of safety and quality, as well as providing reliable patient information. The THR number on product packaging provides the proof of evidence that Kaloba has met the MHRA’s agreed level of safety and quality, and that the on-pack consumer information has been approved by the MHRA.

4 reviews for Kaloba Pelargonium Cough & Cold Relief Oral Drops

  1. 5 out of 5

    :

    It’s such a great product. Tried tablets and tincture. My husband also has had great results with it from a sinus infection. It takes three or so days to get into your system then you really start to feel better. Highly recommended.

  2. 5 out of 5

    :

    I am 68 and had pneumonia for ten days. The complete treatment included many tests taken, prescription medication, injections and oral antibiotics; but in the end my dry and weakening cough could only subside after taking Kaloba drops. Fantastic Kaloba!

  3. 5 out of 5

    :

    I took the Kaloba drops two days after getting a sore throat and found it so helpful it made the sore throat disappear and my cold came and isn’t as bad as it usually is…. its wonderful stuff

  4. 5 out of 5

    :

    As soon as my daughter starts getting a runny nose and sore throat I give her Kaloba Liquid mixed with a little water. It’s so good the whole family uses it now.
