Hilde Hemmes Herbals Echinacea Root 1000mg 60 Capsules
As a powerful immuno-stimulant, echinacea helps to maintain a normal, healthy immune system. Taken regularly (especially by athletes) it can not only provide relief of the symptoms of cold and flu, but can also assist in the treatment of flu by reducing the severity and duration of symptoms.
Native American Indian tribes were the first to use the echinacea root for a variety of ailments and, until the 1800's, it was one of the best-kept secrets. Around 1870 a German physician formulated a medicine containing echinacea that became popular in European households.
It was not until the 1900's that echinacea gained recognition among healers in the west. As the interest in echinacea increased, hundreds of scientific studies have been conducted with different echinacea plant parts, confirming its efficacy.
Today echinacea is recognised as one of the most exciting herbal discoveries for healthy immune function and to assist in the management of upper respiratory tract infections.Medicinal Use
