According to Edgar Ngugi, General Manager, XRP Medical Kenya, “The ingredients found in the two herbal medicines have been tried and tested in China as a complementary prevention alongside other treatment options to manage respiratory diseases.”
“We are happy to be supporting and complementing the Government of Kenya and especially Ministry of Health in the fight against viral pneumonias by introducing products to improve and boost human immunity. The products have undergone rigorous scrutiny exercise by relevant government bodies and the World Health Organization and approved for human consumption. As an institution, we believe prevention is better than cure and so we aspire to introduce more and more products to awaken the giants within us. Our bodies are naturally wired to fight some of these ailments if we take necessary action and boost our immunity accordingly,” noted Mr. Ngugi.
The products have been used in China to reduce cases of acute respiratory infections by boosting human immunity.
“With the unprecedented times that we are in, we hope that Kenyans will more and more warm up to the idea of preventing themselves against viral pneumonias by boosting their immunity while complementing the same with other drugs as advised by their doctors,” concluded Mr. Ngugi.
