The Director of the Pax Herbal Clinic and Research Laboratories, Ewu, Edo State, Nigeria, Rev. Fr. Anslem Adodo, OSB, has reported that NAFDAC has finally approved their Herbal remedy for the Treatment of symptoms associated with COVID-19.
In an internal memo that went viral on social media, Fr Anselm Adodo said, “after a series of screening, spanning a period of eight weeks, the National Agency for Food and Drug Control (NAFDAC) has today approved our PAXHERBAL Covid-19 herbal drug, PAXHERBAL CUGZIN, for public use. It is the first to be so approved and presently the only one. The drug is specifically for treating the symptoms associated with the Corona Virus,” he said.
He also said before this time, NAFDAC had implicitly approved for the drug to be used, though it was yet to be an official approval; hence the initial packs of the herbal remedy bore the disclaimer, “these claims have not yet been verified by NAFDAC.” But with that hurdle crossed, Paxherbal Cugzin now has the NAFDAC number: A7-4358L.
“PAX HERBAL CUGZIN” was initially produced under the brand name, “CVD PLUS” before it was rebranded. The novel drug is in capsules form, and is packaged in a container of eighty 290mg capsules, each containing Garcinia Kola, Curcuma Longa, and Zingiber officinale. The required dosage is two capsules daily, as an immunity booster, while usage for persons with symptoms of COVID-19 would require the directions of the health providers.
