A. Vogel Echinaforce Echinacea Drops 15ml
Echinaforce® Echinacea drops are a traditional herbal remedy used for the

extracts of Echinacea purpurea herb (95%) and root (5%).
Echinacea is a plant native to America but is now cultivated
extensively in Europe. The plants which go into Vogel's product are cultivated
organically in Switzerland at their own herb farms. Up to 10 species of
Echinacea have been identified, but only three (E. purpurea, E. angustifolia
and E. pallida) are used medicinally. Echinacea purpurea is considered to be
the one which has been most widely researched and this is the species Vogel
Vogel's Echinacea is produced using extracts of freshly
harvested, organically grown Echinacea purpurea herb and root, picked fresh and
used within 24 hours of harvest. The benefit of using freshly harvested herbs
has been demonstrated in research - extracts produced from fresh plants contain
almost 3 times as many active substances compared with those obtained from
equivalent amounts of dried herb*.
