What is Echinaforce Forte?
Echinaforce Forte is ideal for those looking for a high strength echinacea with more convenient dosage.
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.
The Echinacea herb is one of the most popular herbs used in Europe. It is considered to be the prime remedy for the immune system and this view has been supported by extensive research.
The Native Americans were the first to recognise the value of the plant, using it for wound healing and snakebites.
How it works
Echinacea works principally by modulating a group of cells in the immune system known as the macrophages. These cells have the ability to destroy viruses, bacteria and other particles that threaten the health of the body.
The immune system thus works more efficiently at avoiding infections. If viruses and bacteria do manage to invade the body they will be dealt with more rapidly.
Whilst there are two other species of Echinacea which may be found in use, tests have shown that Echinacea purpurea has the greatest activity.
Those suffering from leukaemia or HIV should consult a Doctor before using Echinacea. Do not use if taking immunosuppressant medication. Avoid in cases of known hypersensitivity to Echinacea preparations.
