BROOKLYN, N.Y., Dec. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Applied Biological Laboratories, a New York biotechnology company has launched Biovanta™, the only drug in the cough, cold, and sore throat category made from 100% natural ingredients. Biovanta is proven superior to other leading products at controlling upper respiratory inflammation as shown in third-party, blind, placebo-controlled laboratory studies. The scientific publication titled "Rational drug design for sore throat—An aspirin-based treatment that addresses bradykinin-induced inflammation" explains the studies in more detail. According to the publication, Biovanta modulates cytokines and strengthens the respiratory lining. Key inflammatory molecules studied include bradykinin, which is implicated in the cytokine storm associated with COVID-19 and other serious upper respiratory diseases.
As the only natural drug, Biovanta is poised to disrupt the cough, cold, and sore throat category, which has been dominated until now by OTC drugs containing the same handful of synthetic chemicals. Every ingredient in Biovanta is chosen for maximum therapeutic benefit, making Biovanta safer, and more effective than homeopathic or traditional drug remedies.
"The science behind Biovanta is based on decades of research by leading cold and flu academic and private laboratories around world," explains Nazlie Latefi PhD, Co-Founder and Chief Scientific Officer of Applied Biological Laboratories. Dr. Latefi credits "new technologies developed in the past several years" allowing her team to measure the "inflammatory signals inside human respiratory tissue" and therefore design an effective, natural drug that regulates the upper respiratory inflammatory response.
Portable and convenient, Biovanta is available as a throat lozenge in three flavors – Lemon & Honey, Tart Cherry, and Green Apple– or as an on-the-go 10 mL spray. Since Biovanta contains only natural ingredients (including the aspirin), the spray has a unique dual-head format. Both the spray and lozenges retail for $16.99 and are available at most CVS, Walgreens and other select retailer locations. For more information on Biovanta, please visit www.biovanta.com.
