Overview

A. Vogel Echinaforce Drops is a traditional herbal remedy used to relieve the symptoms of:

  • Cold
  • Flu
  • Upper respiratory tract infections

Echinaforce helps maintain the body's resistance by supporting the immune system. 
Echinacea is a plant which is native to America, but is now cultivated extensively in Europe. The plants which go into our product are cultivated organically in Switzerland at A. Vogel's herb farms. The herb and root extracts of the Echinacea species, Echinacea purpurea, are combined to make Echinaforce Echinacea Drops. 

Up to 10 species of Echinacea have been identified, but only three (E. purpurea, E. angustifolia and E. pallida) are used medicinally. Echinacea purpurea is considered to be the one which has been most widely researched and this is the species we use.

Our 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.

This is why, when you need a herbal remedy to help you fight the misery of colds and flu, not all Echinaceas are the same.

  • Helps fight the misery of colds and flu
  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Made from Echinacea purpurea
  • Fresh herb extract

This product is suitable for children over 12 years of age.
