BOCA RATON, Fla., Nov. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The University of Manitoba recently concluded that Colflex Super Oregano Oral Spray is both safe and effective in the fight against cold and flu bacteria growth, the Winnipeg Free Press reported Nov. 2.

Innotech Nutrition developed the formula, which is a blend of essential spice oils like oregano, thyme, spearmint and lemon, and its sales have steadily increased over the past four years, mostly via word of mouth and with minimal promotion. Doctors wanted assurances that the combination of ingredients was safe to use on a daily basis before recommending it to patients, so Innotech put its formula to the test — literally.                                                                           

"In the lab, we found this product halted the incubation of staph, strep, E. coli and salmonella bacteria in less than 30 minutes," said Dr. Peter Jones, Canada Research Chair in Functional Foods and Nutraceuticals and the Director of the University of Manitoba's Richardson Center. "Moreover, our double-blind, randomized clinical trial showed Colflex had no effect on the glucose levels, lipids or liver enzymes of people who took the supplement over a period of four weeks."

Innotech Nutrition developed Colflex as a naturopathic alternative to help people avoid taking already overused antibiotics, and the spray is 100 percent all natural. The results of the testing were exactly what Innotech Nutrition had hoped.

"There are more than 25,000 natural health products sold in Canada with many different claims of benefits, but they are seldom put to the test," Innotech Nutrition CEO Wayne Friesen said. "Customers have told us that Colflex is very effective, but we wanted definitive proof that it not only works, but is very safe. Testing at the Richardson Centre confirmed that."

A bottle of Colflex is $19.99 and contains about 165 sprays. Three sprays per day along the traditional rest and fluids is the recommended usage to help halt the incubation of bacteria.
