What is Echinacea?
Echinacea is a purple coneflower native to North America. The flower naturally contains several beneficial compounds, including polysaccharides, glycoproteins, alkamides, volatile oils and flavonoids. It is the combination of these active substances that are thought to be responsible for Echinacea’s traditional popularity.
Premium quality Echinacea Purpurea
Our premium quality Echinacea 3200mg contains ‘Echinacea Purpurea’, which is proven to be Echinacea in its most effective form. Echinacea is a natural plant and the levels of the active ingredients within it can vary depending on the source. Therefore it is important to ensure that the extract is standardised in order to guarantee the quality and the potency of the 'actives' within the herb.
