Which immunity product is right for me?

Choosing the right product to build your body’s immunity, depends on various factors including your current health, any specific health ailments or conditions, and your lifestyle, diet, and personal preferences.  Here's a guide to help you identify which Kiwiherb products might be suitable for you:


If you’re looking for a preventative against colds and flu, Echinature® could be a good option for you. This is our corner stone immune product made with high quality New Zealand grown Echinacea, Liquorice and Mānuka Honey.  Echinature® should be taken daily, as a preventative product to maintain a stronger immune system.  It is not solely a winter product and can be taken all year round.

If you are already unwell with a cold or flu, Echinature® could shorten the duration of your illness and aid recovery.  If you are already suffering, increase the dose to four times a day for the duration of the illness.

This product is suitable for children 6 years plus and adults.  If you have children, including younger children, check out Children’s Organic Echinature®, suitable for babies from birth and Kiwiherb’s other children’s range of immunity products.

Echinature® is suitable for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Echinature® has a very strong taste and can cause temporary tingling in the mouth after consumption.  This is due to the presence of the alkylamines from the roots of high-quality, potent Echinacea and a feature of an efficacious Echinacea products.  It is a reassuring feeling.  If you’d like to learn more about the Echinacea herb, click here.

Organic ImmuneGuard

Organic ImmuneGuard is a double action formula made for people who struggle with low immunity, poor respiratory function and repeated bouts of throat and chest irritation.  It is ideal to take as a preventative course in the period leading up to the cold and flu season or entering an environment, where the body is more susceptible to being exposed to nasties.

It has Echinacea and Mānuka Honey, with Horseradish and Elecampane.  The Horseradish and Elecampane support mucus removal and healthier breathing.  Organic ImmuneGuard is BioGro Certified Organic and suitable for adults and children 6 years plus.

Like Echinature®, Organic ImmuneGuard causes temporary tingling in the mouth due to the presence of high-quality Echinacea.


If you like to exercise often, or work in a job that keeps you on your feet, ImmuneBerry could be a good option for you.  This herbal formula was designed to support immunity and overall wellbeing during times of intense physical exercise and an active life.  It also helps with low immunity brought on by stress.

A unique feature of ImmuneBerry is the presence of antioxidant-rich New Zealand Blackcurrants in every dose.  It also contains Olive Leaf, which is rich in antioxidants as well.  These antioxidants collectively help to reduce oxidative stress in your body.

ImmuneBerry can be taken daily and is suitable for adults and children 6 years plus.  The berries give it a sweeter taste compared to Organic ImmuneGuard and Echinature®.

Speedy Recovery

Speedy Recovery is a capsule based product designed for people who suffer from repeated viral infections and head colds, when they are currently suffering.  It starts working in 5 minutes, providing relief from symptoms and reducing the period of recovery.  It contains scientifically studied AP-Bio®, renowned for its ability to support immune defences and initiate a faster recovery times.

If you like to keep active or have a very busy life, you probably don’t want to spend too much time being sick.  Perhaps you don’t have enough sick leave, or you just want to get back on your feet sooner.  In these situations, Speedy Recovery may be a good option for you.  Take one capsule morning and evening, for a maximum of two weeks.

Speedy Recovery also provides a full spectrum body support, to aid sleep and muscle fatigue caused by repeated illness.  Vitamin D and Zinc combine to support muscle comfort and lessen muscle tenderness after an illness.

This product is suitable for people aged 18 years plus.  It's not recommended during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
