What are Numark Max Strength Cold & Flu Day & Night Capsules?

These Numark Max Strength Cold & Flu Day & Night Capsules are a form of treatment that is intended to be used in order to relieve symptoms caused by a cold or the flu. These capsules will work to relieve symptoms such as aching, pains, a sore throat, a headache, a blocked nose, and a fever. There are two types of the capsule in this pack, day capsules and night capsules. The night capsules contain the following two active ingredients:

  • Paracetamol
  • Phenylephrine

Paracetamol is a common painkiller which will also help to reduce your temperature when you have a fever. Phenylephrine is a decongestant that will reduce the swelling in the nose that will make breathing easier. The day capsules also contain another active ingredient, caffeine. Caffeine works as a stimulant that helps to keep you awake and will also improve the effectiveness of paracetamol.


What causes a cold or the flu?

A virus, such as a cold or the flu, is caused by an infection that is contagious. The main method of a virus spreading is in the air, through someone who is infected coughing or sneezing. Cold weather isn’t a factor in causing an infection, but it can increase the risk of contracting the virus. A virus can also spread through contact surfaces that have been touched by someone who is infected. A cold and the flu are similar in many ways but there are is a difference. The symptoms of the flu are more severe than cold symptoms.
