Flavonoids – the antioxidants that protect plants from viral infections – can now help to protect us from colds and ‘flu, too. These flavonoids are present in Cold & Flu Guard™ which, when sprayed into your mouth and nose, remains as a thin layer for up to three hours to trap unwanted viruses and bacteria. The patented natural active ingredient, known as Flavobac™, then envelops the trapped viruses and bacteria and inactivates them – just as they do to protect plants – so they can no longer reproduce or cause harm…
Durability of immune responses to the BNT162b2 mRNA vaccine
“Six months after receiving the second dose of the two-shot vaccine from Pfizer Inc and BioNTech SE, many recipients no longer have vaccine-induced antibodies that can immediately neutralize worrisome variants of the coronavirus, a new study suggests.”
This reinforces the need for protection beyond vaccination. Spray it with Cold & Flu Guard.
COLD & FLU GUARD™ could represent an important and novel complementary interventions in the fight against the Delta, Beta and Gamma Variants of Concern
BROSSARD, QC, Aug. 30, 2021 /CNW Telbec/ – New data released today shows that Cold & Flu Guard™ oral/nasal spray is more than 99% effective in-vitro against three of the four deadliest variants of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

The results from the renowned Utah State University Institute of Antiviral Research in the US confirm that Cold & Flu Guard, is highly active against the Delta (India), Beta (South Africa) and Gamma (Japan/Brazil) variants of SARS-CoV-2..
COLD & FLU GUARD™ was developed for application in the nasal and oral cavity to help protect and reduce exposure to respiratory viruses, including SARS-CoV-2. The product is registered for sale in Europe, Canada and USA, and available online in certain markets.
Global data indicates that vaccines against COVID-19 are highly effective in preventing hospitalisation and death, but that vaccinated individuals can still become infected and shed virus. Complementary interventions, like COLD & FLU GUARD™, could potentially be used to protect and reduce viral load at the primary site of initial infection.
“The findings indicate comparable potency for COLD & FLU GUARD against all three variants of concern compared with original strains of the virus. COLD & FLU GUARD™ can be used as supplementary preventative measures to reduce exposure to infectious droplets and potentially reducing the person-to-person transmission risk in close contact situations. Nasal and oral antisepsis have been recommended as part of a comprehensive plan to reduce the risk of virus transmission” said Dr Michael Glogauer, Chief Science Officer at OSI.
FLAVOBAC™ COLD & FLU GUARD™ is an oral and nasal spray product that forms a barrier to protect and prevent viral infections. It is based on a naturally occurring biochemical that help fight infections. It combats viruses by interfering with their ability to adhere to the oral and nasal mucosa. FLAVOBAC™ COLD & FLU GUARD™ has already been reported to kill “99.8% of the SARS-CoV-2 as well as many other respiratory viruses such as human Coronavirus, Influenza virus, Rhinovirus, and RSV.

“Many people with diabetes, heart disease, cancer, immunocompromised and those who can’t afford to be sick need more protection in addition to vaccine and other public health recommendations. COLD & FLU GUARD™ offers a new option to suppress viral spread by trapping and neutralizing the viral load that has entered the nose and mouth. This new data reinforces that COLD & FLU GUARD™ quickly kills SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern, making it an effective and convenient addition to protect against viruses that enter through the mouth and nose”, said Christian Sauvageau, President of OSI.

Joining Forces to Protect Against COVID-19, Oral Science International Engages The Harel Group to Search for Strategic Partners Globally
Oral Science International (OSI), a Canadian oral health company, is proud to announce the collaboration with The Harel Group to search for partners to commercialize its products designed to control respiratory viral infections in markets worldwide.
OSI’s product family includes Cold & Flu Guard™ and Flavobac Health Guard™, available in nasal and oral spray technologies designed to target the source of respiratory viral infections, encapsulate and neutralize viruses prior to infection. 2021 studies demonstrated that the products kill more than 99.94% of enveloped viruses including SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) in 5 minutes. Christian Sauvageau, President of OSI, stated that we are proud to be a part of today’s solution; because feeling sick isn’t an option anymore.
The efficacy of OSI product family is empowered by the synergy between its two main ingredients: hyaluronic acid and Flavobac™, a patented, plant-based citrus extract packed with specific complex of bioflavonoids. Hyaluronic acid creates a physical barrier that coats the mucosa to encapsulate and isolate the virus from entering the oral and nasopharyngeal cavities as well as delivers Flavobac™ to the main sites of exposure to the virus and its reproduction. Flavobac™ then destroys the virus envelope, deactivating and killing the virus which results in neutralizing its ability to infect cells.
The efficacy of the OSI products is combined with an excellent safety profile, Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) designated in the US market. These products are designed to be used prior to exposure to higher risk activities causing COVID-19 and other respiratory diseases (shopping, workplaces, or transit) or to reduce symptoms after exposure.
Flavobac Health Guard Complete™ has been approved by the US FDA for oral care, Cold and Flu Guard™ in the European Union as a medical device, Cold and Flu Guard GOLD™ in Canada as a natural health product. Losenge and other formulations are under investigation. They are now marketed in the UK and Canada. Additional clinical and non-clinical studies are ongoing or planned to be conducted to further substantiate or expand its clinical utility and benefits. OSI has engaged The Harel Group, a business development advisory firm, founded and led by Jacob Harel, to support its global geographical expansion. By entering this collaboration, OSI will leverage The Harel Group’s expansive global network of hundreds of life science companies in the US, Europe, Japan, Latin America, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia Pacific.
“OSI is an outstanding company that offers additional protective tool to fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. We also believe that Cold & Flu Guard™ will be a great health guard against colds and flu in the years to come,” stated Jacob Harel, President of The Harel Group. “We look forward to collaborating with OSI as it takes the next step towards global commercialization.”
“We are pleased to be working with The Harel Group to support our business growth,” said Christian. “They are highly experienced professionals in the life science industry, and have unique international and commercial expertise, which will serve our business purpose well.”
