Cold-fX is a product derived from the roots of North American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius). It is marketed as a daily suppliment to improve the body's immune system and aid in preventing common cold and flu, as well as a treatment to reduce the duration and severity of the diseases.
Additional recommended knowledge
A study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal concluded that "ingestion of a poly-furanosyl-pyranosyl-saccharide–rich extract of the roots of North American ginseng in a moderate dose over 4 months reduced the mean number of colds per person, the proportion of subjects who experienced 2 or more colds, the severity of symptoms and the number of days cold symptoms were reported." 
Comments from the health/medical community
COLD-fX has received several reviews within the health/medical community. Health Canada said that 'CV Technologies Inc. can market COLD-fX as helping "to reduce the frequency, severity and duration of cold and flu symptoms by boosting the immune system."'  The University of California’s UC Berkeley Wellness Letter called the clinical trials for Cold fX “well designed” and mentioned “promising results” and the statement from Health Canada. The Center for Science in the Public Interest, in a medical review of 10 popular natural cold remedies, concluded that “…Cold-fX is the only remedy we found with any evidence that it might improve your chances of getting through the cold and flu season without coming down with something.” The American Botanical Council concluded that Cold-fX demonstrated “impressive” benefits to users.
