Lemsip. Day(s) off from school: watching TV programmes you’d usually miss pre-VHS/Betamax. Aspirin.
They made you feel a little better, sure. Also one thing I remember from my time(s) as a callow youth when I had the flu etc: Lucozade.
Decades ago, in glass bottles with yellow cellophane wrapping: that golden fizzy glucose drink always tasted good. Still does to this day, even though it’s marketed as an energy drink in plastic bottles: such an ingrained part of British culture is it, that in recent years it was bought by Japanese drinks company Suntory.
The reason why they haven’t submitted papers for peer review to “The Lancet” and “British Medical Journal” is because they know that the product they now own isn’t actually a cure: no claims were made in TV adverts all those decades ago when Lucozade was made by Beechams, later SmithKline Beecham, now a large pharmaceutical company.
But they’ll have submitted papers re. the products their pharmaceutical division developed for peer review, ultimately for passing on to hospitals, clinics, physicians who prescribe such: because in the peer reviewing of said products via those submitted papers along with clinical trials, they’ll have been proven to have worked: ergo their distribution. Lucozade may be an energy drink: certainly one so profitable it was bought by Suntory for £1.35 billion, but it’s just that: a drink.
Now, submit papers for peer review to those august medical periodicals to prove your ‘claims’. But that’s all they are.
Even a snake oil salesman would barely give you tuppence ha’penny for your ‘cures’, OP.
