In the latter part of the 60's l was put on this medicine to build my immune system to avoid colds and it worked. I took it for about 2 years, and you only took it during the cough and cold season. You took it every day for 7 days, then one pulvule (Lilly's name for capsules) twice a week. I assume there was not enough of a market to use this product today.
