Engystol ®

Engystol® is produced in Germany and marketed by Biologische Heilmittel Heel GmbH for more than 60 years and marketed in Greece by A.S.K. Pharmaceutical, as an OTC medicine in tablet form.

The aim of treatment with Engystol® is to activate and support the body’s endogenous defense mechanisms and thus to strengthen the natural immune response in cases of upper respiratory viral infection, resulting in milder symptoms and shorter recovery times. Taken either preventively or at the first signs of a cold, Engystol® may prevent the development of acute symptoms(fever, bone aches, muscle aches).
