It’s been quiet these last few days on here – I’ve had an annoying cold. You know the kind, bunged up and sniffly, and I’ve really fought it. However, I suspect it would have been a lot worse had I not been boosting my immune system with A. Vogel’s Echinaforce Echinacea Drops.
I always forget to take enough echinacea, especially at this time of year – and while I often forgot to take this three times a day, I did do several doses twice.
It’s nice and easy to take too – no tablets, just drops. Get your glass of water, add 15 drops (0.6ml) and drink.
(I should note here that children of 6-12 years can take this, but should only do 7 drops (0.3ml))
Echinaforce is a herbal remedy for the symptomatic relief of colds and flu – and similar upper respiratory tract infections. Given I’ve had this cold, I’m making sure I do at least two doses a day now – and I’d also say this cold has gone a lot quicker than previous ones.
A. Vogel’s Echinacea 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. (Tobler M et al: Characteristics of whole fresh plant extracts. Schweizerische Zeitschrift fur GanzheitMedizin, 1994)
You can buy a Echinacea 50ml pack for under a tenner, and it’ll last a long time – in the month or so I’ve had this it has gone down by approximately 1cm – so you’ll be buying something which lasts all winter – plus it helps boost your immune system.
We were sent a 50ml Echinaforce bottle to try, all opinions are our own.
