Hyland's DEFEND Severe Cold + Flu is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I love this product. Nine months ago I was holed up sick in a Denver hotel, my friend, who is a homeopath and almost never recommends combination remedies, recommended Hyland's Defend Severe Cold and Flu and it helped me weather the storm. I have given it to others and used it since and it has been helpful to all. A bonus is the warm drink part, much more soothing than swallowing pills. Recently, i have been dismayed not to find it any longer at Whole Foods or Walgreens or Mariano's. I hope distribution will improve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This stuff works amazingly well I don't get sick very often, but when I do, I don't like to take drugs. I found this stuff and thought I'd give it a try. One night I couldn't breathe through my nose and it was keeping me up. I had a cup of this tea and within 5 minutes I could breathe and was able to sleep. It's truly amazing stuff! I am recommending it to my friends. Only problem is it's hard to find and not in all areas, and the Hylands website is always wrong when they say it's in stock, so call ahead!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only one I found effective against Flu/Cold After trying Oscillococinum and all other flu meds that claim to be effective, Hyland’s Flu powder is the only effective herb that shortens my flu duration—over the past decades, I got cold and flu and have tried numerous cold flu meds religiously but nothing has been helpful as much as Hyland’s. Taste is aweful but darn it this is a flu medicine, not a jamba juice, as long as it is effective I dont care the taste. But why is it out of stock every where?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product Hylund cold and cough is great. I can use it for the children in the family and also with the older people with multiple health issues and meds. Good for people who still have to get to work and don't have time to be sick. If you can't be sick and you cant take time to have a cloudy brain, try Hylund cold& cough.
