American Botanical Council releases study on Sinupret

2/5/2009

AUSTIN, Texas The nonprofit American Botanical Council on Thursday published a monograph summarizing the scientific and clinical studies of Sinupret, a clinically-tested herbal combination for upper respiratory tract health, including conditions associated with sinusitis and bronchitis.

Studies of Sinupret reviewed in the monograph include four clinical trials regarding acute sinusitis, two clinical trials regarding chronic sinusitis, one meta-analysis of clinical trials evaluating treatment of sinusitis, two clinical trials regarding bronchitis, and a post-marketing surveillance study of patients with bronchitis.

Based on the review of the available scientific and clinical information from these studies, the monograph concludes that Sinupret has a relatively significant level of safety and efficacy data compared to many other natural products intended for use in maintaining the health of sinuses and the upper respiratory tract.

"Year after year Sinupret is one of the top-selling herbal products in Germany, a country where the strong tradition of herbal preparations is combined with modern science," stated Mark Blumenthal, founder and executive director of ABC. "Extensive use by millions of people attests to this product's overall safety and effectiveness in the area of upper respiratory tract health."

Sinupret contains extracts of five traditional European herbs — elder (Sambucus nigra) flowers, primrose (Primula veris) flowers with calyx, common sorrel (Rumex acetosa) herb, European vervain (Verbena officinalis) herb and gentian (Gentiana lutea) root — and is manufactured by Bionorica.

ABC emphasized that the publication of the Sinupret monograph is not an endorsement or recommendation of the product or the manufacturer. "ABC has had a long history of documenting the specific herbal products and ingredients that have been clinically tested," Blumenthal said. "As part of our nonprofit educational mission, we believe it is in the public interest to identify clinically tested natural plant-based products and ingredients which the scientific literature indicates are safe and beneficial."
