Echinacea Info

Echinacea is a perennial plant with purple blossoms, commonly known as ‘coneflower’. Native to eastern and central North America, Echinacea was widely used by the North American Plains Indians to treat infections and as a general health promoter. There are 3 different species of Echinacea used medicinally: Echinacea angustifolia, Echinacea pallida, and Echinacea purpurea. There is strong research showing that the root of both angustifolia and pallida is most effective, while in purpurea the fresh flowering tops have the best medicinal effect. Some supplements combine the three species for maximum effect.

It is a specific in treating HIV/ AIDS and in colds, flu and all kinds of upper respiratory tract conditions. Skin, urinary tract, genital and gum infections are all indications for Echinacea. It is used intravenously to treat some cancers and can be an important part of a healing regime in treating many other diseases.

Product Reviews

  • Well worth taking daily, feel better "inside"

    Since starting to take these probiotics, my "insides" have felt much better. I was adivsed to start taking probiotics and started with ones from the Chemist -nothing wrong with them - however these ones are much better and more convenient as they don't have to be kept in the fridge. Would have no worries in recommending them. Have even got my husband to start taking them (though he finds the size of tablet a bit daunting)



  • Reliable and cheap!

    Have used these a lot and really notice the difference when I'm not taking them. And so worth it for such a great price :)



  • Fast acting relief for babies

    I first gave this to my baby when she was 4 months old and during another cold since (she's now 8 months). She loves the taste and it works quickly to unblock sinuses. I've also given it to my 5 year old niece and it helped put a spring back into her step within 5-10 minutes. Safe for babies and children and all natural. A definite must for the medicine cabinet!
