EchinaMed is the result of a highly sophisticated, patented extraction process that guarantees consistent levels of Echinacea purpurea’s three key active constituents – alkylamides, polysaccharides and cichoric acid. These active constituents are provided in a base of whole herb, so that none of the minor actives are missing. EchinaMed is the first echinacea extract that meets the rigorous scientific standards demanded of pharmaceuticals. It is the only extract tested in two randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled phase II clinical trials. These trials, as well as laboratory evidence, have demonstrated that EchinaMed is an effective stimulant of the innate immune system reducing the severity and duration of upper respiratory tract infections, and possibly mitigating the risk of secondary infections. EchinaMed has been found to increase the number of circulating white blood cells, monocytes, neutrophils and natural killer cells. In vivo animal studies have demonstrated an increase in alveolar macrophage phagocytic response in a dose-dependent manner, as well as increased nitric oxide and tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α). Nitric oxide is one of the primary mechanisms by which alveolar macrophages destroy foreign particles in the lungs, while TNF-α has antiviral effects, accounting for EchinaMed’s ability to act both therapeutically and preventatively.
• Proven to reduce the severity and duration of upper respiratory infections, including the common cold by up to 75%
• Tested in two randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled phase II clinical trials
• Each 250mg of EchinaMed is made from 2000mg of hand-picked fresh Echinacea purpurea flower, leaves, stem and roots
Each softgel contains:
Medicinal ingredient:
EchinaMed (echinacea purpurea) standardized extract 2.9:1 (aerial, root) (Equivalent to 725 mg Crude Herb) 250mg.

Non-medicinal ingredients:
Softgel (gelatin, glycerin, purified water, carob), sunflower oil, yellow beeswax and sunflower lecithin.
At the first sign of a viral infection, take 1 softgel 5 times per day for the first 2 days, then take 1 softgel 3 times per day on subsequent days for up to 21 days. Preventative Use: For immune system support throughout the year, take 1 softgel per day or as directed by a healthcare practitioner. Consult a health care practitioner for use beyond 8 weeks.
Do not use if you are allergic to plants of the Asteraceae/Compositae/Daisy family. Herbs in this family include: ragweed, marigolds, daisies and chrysanthemums. Theoretical contraindication was suggested by the German Commission E5 surrounding the use of Echinacea species in autoimmune conditions, due to the immunostimulatory effects of the herb. Consult a healthcare practitioner prior to use if you have a progressive systemic disease, (e.g., tuberculosis, leucosis, collagenosis or multiple sclerosis), or if you are taking immunosuppressants; however, there is no clinical evidence to support this concern. The reason for the Commission’s caution was based on theoretical concerns and because such conditions are not amenable to self-medication. As such, caution may still be warranted. Hypersensitivity (e.g., allergy) has been known to occur, in which case discontinue use. Consult a health care practitioner if symptoms persist or worsen. Keep out of reach of children.
