Flavobac™ Cold & Flu Guard provides a natural barrier against bacteria and viruses


Flavobac Cold & Flu Guard, developed by leading preventative dentistry provider Oraldent, is a completely natural oral and nasal barrier against bacteria and viruses, including SARS-CoV-2 and influenza. Supplied in an easy-to-apply spray format, this CE-approved product is made from plant-based, food-safe ingredients, combining hyaluronic acid and bioflavonoids to protect against common respiratory infections.

The antimicrobial properties of bioflavonoids are widely recognised, and these compounds are routinely used in food preparation and surface cleaning. Flavobac Cold & Flu Guard combines a proprietary formulation of bioflavonoids – derived from bitter oranges – with hyaluronic acid, which is naturally produced by the body and plays a key role in skin health and wound repair. This unique prophylactic provides both a physical barrier and antimicrobial protection at the primary site of respiratory infections, preventing viruses and bacteria from entering the body. It can be applied several times a day to protect against infection in the workplace or higher risk environments – such as schools, grocery stores or public transport – and independent testing has shown that Flavobac effectively deactivates 99.9 % of respiratory viruses in just minutes, for added peace of mind.

Richard Thomas, Managing Director of Oraldent, commented: “The active ingredients in Flavobac Cold & Flu Guard have been scientifically proven to be effective in killing viruses within minutes, including in direct tests against SARS-CoV-2. This natural yet powerful barrier provides an effective and convenient option to protect against pathogens that enter through the mouth and nose, and we’re excited to be bringing it to the UK market.”
