Research on Boiron specialties

We invite you to take a look at some of the studes that showed evidence of Boiron products’ effectiveness have led to publications:
Arnica: an effective, well-tolerated and potential alternativee to NSAIDs  
Oscillococcinum: Clinical demonstrated efficacy against influenzia-like symptoms. Reduction in number of respiratory infection episode, no undesirable effect
CICADERMA: Demostrates Pro-healing properties, speeds up skin regenration, improve the quality of regenerated skin, limits inflammatory skin processes

Research on Homeopathy

Currently, there are more than 5,000 studies on homeopathy available to health care professionals on Pubmed, the leading search engine for scientific research. Clinical research is providing evidence of the efficacy of homeopathic medicines, and basic laboratory research is confirming the biological activity of highly diluted substances and helping the scientific community better understand their mechanism of action.


Ultra-high dilutions of LiCl and NaCl (10-30 g. cm-3) have been irradiated by X and g-rays at 77 K, then progressively rewarmed to room temperature. During that phase, their thermoluminescence has been studied and it was found that, despite their dilution beyond the Avogadro number, the emitted light was specific of the original salts dissolved initially.

Biological Research

In the absence of COX 1, ultra-low doses of aspirin produce an antihemorrhagic effect not observed with intermediate doses. The absence of COX 2 induced a hemorrhagic effect that needs further research, probably originated in compensatory phenomena.

Clinical Research

The study suggest that diluted and vigorously shaken potassium dichromate may help to decrease the amount of stringy tracheal secretions in COPD patients.
