What the experts are saying

"Echinacea is a herb traditionally known for fighting infections by boosting immune function. It is most effectively taken at the first signs of a cold or flu developing as it can shorten the duration and may even stop the virus from progressing. For common colds it is best to take this herb until the symptoms disappear. The use of this herb is not recommended long term so do not take for more than 6 weeks at a time. Caution for those with chronic conditions and autoimmune diseases."
