Nature's Bioceuticals Finalizes The Purchase of Cold and Flu Formula
Date:11/10/2011

CAPE CORAL, Fla., Nov. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Nature's Bioceuticals, a wholly owned subsidiary of Mistral Ventures, Inc. (MILV.pk - News) announced that it has executed the closing documents for the purchase of the cold and flu formula and now has the exclusive rights to the formula.

The common cold, an infection of the upper respiratory tract, is caused by any of 200 different viruses. The viral infection and the immune system's battle against it produce the all-too-familiar symptoms: sore throat, nasal congestion, runny nose, watery eyes, hacking cough and sometimes fever. It is a viral infection, so things like antibiotics, which are often mistakenly prescribed for colds, won't help. Giving antibiotics for viral diseases is a distressingly common practice. Studies have shown that 60 percent of patients who went to the doctor with one of the viruses that cause the common cold received an inappropriate prescription for antibiotics.

Sales of cold and flu formulas slipped slightly between 2009 and 2010, down 1.2% for sales of $3.8 billion. Helping to decelerate the losses was both competitive threats from alternative remedies and increased sales of private label products across all segments of the market, as consumers sought out more affordable remedies during the poor economy, often with the view that these medicines work just as well as national brands. However, most of these products simply mask the symptoms and do little or nothing to address attacking the cause. Many people have lost confidence in OTC products due to bad press, a number of recalls and FDA recommendations. Further, on March 2, 2011 the FDA announced steps to remove more than 500 prescription cold, cough, and allergy products from the market because of potential safety concerns.
