Info: 200 ml Glass Bottle
To modern, urban ears, "Echinacea" may sound like something concocted in a lab, but it's not: it's something quintessentially natural -- a wildflower, which grows in North America. Native Americans used different forms of it as a natural remedy for many types of infections, both internally (especially for colds and flus), topically (as an ointment for bites, burns, and poorly healing wounds), and in-between (to treat upper respiratory tract ailments or to soothe sore throats or tonsils with a medicinal steam, by pouring Echinacea tea over hot coals). Today, it's widely used in many regions as a supportive therapy to help relieve the symptoms and shorten the duration of upper respiratory tract infections. Some studies found it can greatly reduce the chance of getting a cold, and others indicate it can reduce a cold's duration by over a day. Unlike extracted versions which tend to come in a base of alcohol, this is pure echinacea juice, pressed from fresh, certified organic plants.
