Yin Qiao holds off colds

Whenever I feel as though I’m coming down with a cold, even a slight achiness in my chest or sneezing, I take Yin Qiao and within a few hours whatever is coming on disappears. These are very useful herbs. I will not be without them in my arsenal during the winter!

You're Nuts if you Don't Use Yin Qiao for Cold/Allergy Symptoms

I’ve been taking YQ for more than 30 years to keep from getting sick from colds and to significantly reduce the effects of my (pretty bad) pollen allergies. This brand, Yang Cheng, is consistently good and easy to take. Vitamin C/Echinacea concoctions simply don’t work. Zinc works, but it has uncomfortable side effects, and is NOT as effective as Yin Qiao. Grab several bottles ahead of the season, and the MOMENT you feel that tickle in your nose or back of your throat, start taking your Tin Qiao! It truly works.

I have used the yin choi before from other stores. It’s great for sinus and stuffed up nose, or allergies. I use as needed but I know people who use it every day to prevent. I’m never disappointed with this product
