WHAT DOES THE PREPARATION CONTAIN?;
Through long years of testing, the research team was led to a combination of essential oils from 3 aromatic herbs, namely, Coridοthymus capitatus, Salvia fruticosa and Origanum dictamnus , at specific ratios. This preparation does not simply have a cumulative but a true synergistic effect. In other words, its effects exceed the total action of its separate ingredients, as one substance complements and/or enhances the action of the others.
The specific combination was lawfully registered under an international patent. The essential oils of the 3 aromatic herbs in the form of a soft capsule are dissolved in extra virgin olive oil.
