Product Overview

Echinacea has been hugely popular in Europe as an immune-booster for nearly a hundred years but surprisingly its origins are from the other side of the Atlantic: Echinacea was the native americans’ primary medicine for insect and animal bites. Now it is second to no other herb as a means to fight infections, not just because it’s an antibiotic (it contains echinacoside) but because Echinacea actually increases the number and activity of immune system cells and helps our body fight the infection itself.
