Echinacea Angustifolia is an immune-system booster with antibiotic and anti-fungal activity. It helps prevent symptoms of colds and flu, and it limits the duration and severity of sore throats and ear and eye infections. This product offers relief from tonsillitis, inflammed gums and mucus problems. In addition, it reduces the symptoms of some allergies, promotes the healing of skin wounds and inflammatory conditions, such as canker sore, cuts, scrapes, boils, abscesses and eczema.
I take this daily and it does seem to help overall. When I do get sick it is not as severe as it used to be and I bounce back a lot quicker. I do notice a difference if I have not taken it in a few days.
Thanks to Jamieson for making such a fine product to avoid colds and to ensure that you get the same bottle I'm referring to, please check that the UPC is 0-64642-02208-0 (for the full 1000mg root extract dosage).
This Jamieson Echinacea (1000 / 200mg dose) works great for me when I take it at the first sign of a cold or scratchy throat! I take just one capsule with water, first thing in the morning and the cold symptoms I thought were "settling in" seem to be gone by the end of the day! I usually take another at bedtime, just to make sure.
