Echinacea and Immune Wellbeing

With winter ills and chills on the rise, one of the best forms of defence is a robust immune system.

An ideal supporting herb, Echinacea (Echinacea purpurea) helps to shield the body against infection from viruses and bacteria, and aids in recovery when the runny noses and chesty spasms kick in. 

This humble herb works to lower inflammation associated with illness and helps to re-regulate the immune response, supporting upper respiratory tract health and encouraging healing when illness is frequently experienced.

The primary active components in echinacea are called alkylamides, which are highly concentrated in the plant root and are behind the renowned tingling sensation that occurs after taking a high quality Echinacea. Kiwiherb uses BioGrow certified organic New Zealand echinacea root, to ensure the highest quality in our products.

The versatility of echinacea means it is present in many of the Kiwiherb formulas, with the option to take as a daily maintenance dose to prevent illness, or as a higher dose when illness has already set in.

Children's Organic Echinature® is specially formulated for children 0 - 12 years and combines echinacea root with apple and orange for a flavour kids will love. Adults Echinature® is standardised for alkylamides for a guaranteed high-potency formulation. This can be taken undiluted, with a small amount of juice, or added to warm water with a dash of lemon and honey.

Always read the label. Use as directed. If symptoms persist talk to your healthcare professional. This medicine may not be right for you. Read the warnings before use.
