Nelsons® Colica® Colic Granules

Life with a baby is a magical time full of making cherished memories as you get to know your new arrival. However for the one in five parents whose child has colic*, it can be an overwhelming period.

Although colic is considered a harmless condition, it can be very upsetting hearing your little one cry so fervently for such long periods. In fact a recent study we did found that almost half of parents (49%) think that colic is the most distressing ailment for parents to deal with.** To help relieve the symptoms of colic, we have created Nelsons® Colica® Colic Granules, a homeopathic medicinal product used within the homeopathic tradition for the symptomatic relief of colic in babies over 1 month of age.
