Features and benefits
Standardised potency, beta-1, 2-D-oligofructofuranosides 1.6mg per tablet
High dose provides therapeutic action for the treatment of cold and flu
Developed to replicate the recognised therapeutic dose of Echinacea purpurea as published in the German Commission E Monograph 1989.
How it works
Echinacea has been extensively investigated and is known to have a variety of actions on the immune system, including elevation of serum white blood cell count (when numbers are low), promotion of non-specific T-cell activation (leading to a range of other activities including increased activity of natural killer cells and stimulating the release of interferon), enhancement of macrophage activity, as well as having antibacterial and antiviral properties.
This high dose product provides a therapeutic dose that is indicated for the relief of symptoms of infections, particularly those of the upper respiratory tract such as colds and flu.
Adults - Take 2 tablets up to 3 times daily with meals, or as professionally prescribed.
Children (under 0 years) - Only as professionally prescribed. For children under 12 years we recommend Blackmores Liquid Echinacea.
