Echinaforce® Chewable contains the same herbal extract of freshly harvested Echinacea purpurea that goes into our well known Echinaforce® Echinacea drops and tablets. It may be used by children (above the age of 12 years) to help fight the misery of colds and flu.
Our Echinacea products are 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 by research – extracts from fresh plants contain almost 3 times more active substances compared to those obtained from equivalent amounts of dried herb*.
