Can I use only half a capsule for a smaller dose?

The main ingredient in Kolorex products is the horopito leaf which is related to the pepper family. It can cause a burning sensation in the esophagus if not taken with a protective capsule. We do not recommend cutting open a capsule to take a partial dose.

What is the key ingredient in Kolorex® products?

The main ingredient in the Kolorex® range of products is the Kolorex® Horopito leaf. It is derived from high activity specimens of the horopito herb native to New Zealand. The herbs are grown in a natural environment and each harvest passes an independent test for efficacy before it’s processed and used in the Kolorex® range of products.
The active ingredient in the horopito leaf is called polygodial. It is the polygodial that is responsible for horopito’s antifungal activity.

Is Kolorex® Horopito safe? Are there any side effects I should watch out for?

Horopito has been part of the Maori healing tradition for decades. A large number of Kolorex® products have been sold over the last twenty years with no reported side effects. However, there have been cases of allergic reaction to genital application of Kolorex® Intimate Care cream. As a precaution, apply a small amount of the cream to the inside of the wrist and leave for a few hours. Discontinue use if a rash appears.

Are Kolorex® products medicinal in nature?

No. Kolorex® products are designed to help maintain general well-being. They are not intended to treat, cure or prevent any disease.

What makes Kolorex® products more effective than comparable remedies on the market?

An herb commonly known as horopito (Pseudowintera colorata) is the main ingredient used in Kolorex® products. It is a powerful anti-fungal and Candida-fighting ingredient that has been shown to be more effective than Pau d’Arco, oregano oil or olive leaf extract in restoring the body’s natural micro flora balance.

Is Kolorex safe for animals?

We do not recommend that Kolorex® be administered to animals.

Top

Are chemicals used to make the extract that’s contained in Kolorex® products?

Our products are formulated by subjecting Kolorex® Horopito leaf to carbon dioxide gas under high pressure; a process called supercritical extraction. This process is acknowledged as the cleanest in the supplement manufacturing industry because when the pressure is released, the harmless gas is removed and leaves no residue, just extract.

What’s the best way to take Kolorex® capsules for maximum effectiveness?

We recommend they be taken on a full stomach with an eight-ounce glass of water.

Top

What is the recommended Kolorex® capsule dosage?

One Kolorex Advanced Candida Care soft gel is all you need for maximum effectiveness. It is safe to increase your dosage to two capsules per day – one in the morning and one in the evening. Some customers tell us they take up to three capsules per day for a more intense healing protocol.

Should I discontinue the use of Kolorex® capsules after a certain length of time?

Kolorex® capsules can be taken long term without any issues or side effects. We recommend that you discuss the use of any natural health products with an experienced health professional.

Are Kolorex® products safe to use during pregnancy?

There is no evidence that Kolorex products affect the development of a fetus during pregnancy, but as a precaution we recommend that consumers discontinue use of Kolorex® products when expecting.

Top

Are Kolorex® products safe to use while breast feeding?

As a precaution, we recommend that Kolorex® products are not used while breast feeding.

Top

Will Kolorex® products interact with other herbal or prescription medicines?

As of yet we have had no reported instances of Kolorex® products interacting with medications.

Top

Why do Kolorex® creams feel hot when I apply them to sensitive skin?

Horopito leaves contain properties that make them naturally hot, similar to cayenne pepper. During the extraction process, the active properties and heat are so concentrated that even the small amount that goes into the cream formulations can produce a heat sensation. This can be noticeable for a small number of people who suffer with sensitive skin.

Top

Why do Kolorex® capsules sometimes make my stomach feel unwell?

Some users occasionally experience nausea or stomach discomfort the first few times after taking Kolorex® capsules. This may be due to the natural heat of Kolorex® Horopito (similar to cayenne) or it may be due to a Herxheimer (yeast die off) reaction. We recommend discontinuing use if the feeling persists and consulting an experienced health professional for dosage recommendations.
