A Beginner's Guide On Buccaline and Influenza Flu Vaccines

Buccaline is a tablet-based antibacterial oral vaccination. It can only be obtained from pharmacies after a consultation with a holistic pharmacist.

Additional bacterial infections typically exacerbate viral and influenza-like diseases, delaying recovery. Upper respiratory illnesses are characterised by sore throats, runny noses, sneezing, and coughing, frequently caused by bacterial infections.

How Does Buccaline Work? 

A three-day treatment of Buccaline can help the body develop immunity to the microorganisms that cause bacterial cold symptoms for up to three months. Buccaline tablets contain trace levels of germs that can cause the difficulties associated with colds and flu, but they are inactive.

Buccaline dissolves in the colon, and macrophages swallow the bacterial antigens it contains within the intestinal wall, which then carries them on to endothelium tissue, stimulating the immune system, giving the body an extra layer of protection against winter infections.

Who Will Be Able To Take Buccaline?

Buccaline tablets provide cost-effective and safe protection against colds and chills for the following:

  • Patients at risk—the elderly, people with bronchitis, and people who suffer from asthma
  • People who are getting a flu shot and want an extra layer of protection
  • From small children to adulthood

Protection kicks in a few days after the last Buccaline dose and can last up to three months after just one three-day treatment. Buccaline can be used initially and again in the middle of the cold season to maintain good full-season protection.

Buccaline is not a replacement for the influenza vaccine and does not protect against viral coughs and colds. Buccaline can be used in conjunction with a flu vaccination.
