Echinacea (Echinacea purpurea) was the most commonly used herb amongst Native North Americans for conditions ranging from infections to joint pain, thanks to its ability to modulate and enhance immune system function. Today, echinacea is an effective way to provide support during a common cold – and has a wealth of scientific evidence to stand behind it. Holista Echinacea helps relieve the symptoms and shorten the duration of upper respiratory tract infections.

The immune-modulating and virus-fighting abilities of echinacea are credited to the synergistic activity of numerous active ingredients such as polysaccharides, alkylamides, and caffeic acid derivatives such as cichoric acid. This synergy is why echinacea is able to help the body resist pathogens and recover more quickly. Unlike over-the-counter cold medications, echinacea does not cause drowsiness or hyperalertness, and does not mask symptoms.

Holista Echinacea 200 mg capsules contain the equivalent of 1200 mg of fresh Echinacea purpurea to provide support during infection and reduce symptoms. Holista’s Echinacea purpurea is organically grown and harvested when active ingredients are at their peak concentration for maximum effectiveness. Echinacea is most effective when taken at the first sign of symptoms.
