It’s amazing how many people don’t know about Echinacea (let alone how to pronounce it)…
The powdered flower is used to increase the white blood cells in our body which fight colds and flu.
My own personal experience with echinacea is so good that I recommend it all the time. It stops me getting worse when I’m run down.
Come to think of it there are loads of herbal remedies which people find useful for different purposes. Schwabe make a product called EchinaCold, but they also make various other concoctions for migraines, depression, sleep problems, indigestion, coughs and stress… The list goes on.
For those of us who prefer to use herbal remedies Schwabe make a useful source of medicinal treatments, all with the Traditional Herbal Remedy certification mark.
