They seem to go from one family member to the next with little reprieve. This winter, take a proactive approach to cold and flu season so you can enjoy it to the maximum!

Echinacea was first introduced to the medical community in 1887. By the 1930s it had become the top-selling herb among physicians in the United States for a multitude of conditions, including the lessening of cold and flu symptoms for which it is recognized today. The mechanisms by which echinacea works are not fully understood. The plant’s polysaccharides are thought to inhibit the ability of viruses to enter and take over cells, while alkamides are considered antibacterial. Recent studies on both adults and children show that taking echinacea can significantly reduce the need for antibiotics, may help strengthen the immune system and reduce the duration of colds or flu.

Goldenseal root contains certain alkaloids, namely berberine and hydrastine. These alkaloids in goldenseal have a strong affinity to the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract and help support the immune system.

Echinacea & Goldenseal Extract from Nature’s Sunshine combines two species of echinacea with goldenseal root in a liquid extract, for maximum benefit of these traditional herbs.

As with all herbal supplements, please consult with your practitioner if you are taking other medications to ensure no adverse reactions may occur. Could you benefit from taking Echinacea & Goldenseal extract? BOOK an analysis and find out!
