  • May  shorten the duration and decrease the severity of cold symptoms.
  • May decrease the incidence of colds.
  • Traditionally used to relieve symptoms of bronchitis.
  • Supports healthy function of the immune system.
  • Enteric-coated to ensure that the garlic is not released until it reaches the intestine, thereby minimising odour.
  • Low odour, high potency.

How it works

Echinacea has been shown to stimulate the immune system and may reduce the risk of infections, particularly of the upper respiratory tract.

One of the ways that echinacea works in the immune system is by increasing the number of white blood cells. White blood cells are involved in defending the body against foreign microorganisms. 

Echinacea also stimulates a group of immune system cells called phagocytes, which engulf and digest bacteria or other foreign bodies.

Garlic has antimicrobial and antibacterial activity and is particularly active against the influenza virus. It is also indicated for the temporary relief of symptoms of other mild infections especially those in the upper respiratory tract, including bronchitis and colds.
