Echinaforce® is a herbal remedy used for the symptomatic relief of colds, influenza type infections and similar upper respiratory tract conditions.
It helps the body fight the symptoms of these infections by supporting the immune system, helping to maintain the body’s resistance.
Echinaforce® is produced using extracts of freshly harvested, organically grown Echinacea purpurea herb and root, picked fresh and used within 24 hours of harvest. The benefit of using freshly harvested herbs has been demonstrated in research – extracts produced from fresh plants contain almost 3 times more active substances compared with those obtained from equivalent amounts of dried herb*.
