It was created by Victoria Knight-McDowell in the early 1990s. It is offered for sale over-the-counter in many U.S. retail stores in three different forms: tablet, chewable lozenge, or powder. It is marketed as a dietary supplement supporting the immune system, though the benefit to users remains unestablished.
