BENEFITS:¬† Yerba Prima Echinace¬ģ Extra Strength is made with Echinacea purpurea juice extract for the strongest Echinacea benefits.¬† Echinacea purpurea juice is approved by the German Commission E for immune health support.¬† This is an alcohol-free formula with the convenience of the capsule dosage form.¬† In addition to the Echinacea extract, it contains the assimilation boosting nutrient Bioperine¬ģ black pepper extract.
Echinacea helps support normal immune function.¬† Clinical studies have shown the strongest benefits for boosting the immune function on a short-term basis.¬† However, other research indicates benefits for school children and others taking Echinacea purpurea herb juice on a daily basis to maintain good health.
American Indians were the first people to recognize the benefits of Echinacea, and numerous tribes used the species that grew in their regions.¬† In fact, Echinacea was one of the most used medicinal plants by Native Americans in the Midwest.
The leaves and roots were used as a tea, placed directly on the tooth for toothaches and applied topically to the skin.¬† The most common uses were for immune system related problems, just as we use Echinacea today.¬† The Cheyenne used a tea of leaves and roots for sore throats.¬† The Kiowa chewed the roots and swallowed the juice for coughs and sore throats.¬† Comanche also used Echinacea for colds and sore throats.¬† In addition, Echinacea earned the name Snakeroot because several tribes found it helpful for treating snakebites.
Echinacea extracts were widely used by the U.S. medical profession during the late 1800‚Äôs.¬† It fell into disfavor with the introduction of synthetic drugs in the early 1900‚Äôs.¬† Then German researchers discovered Echinacea in the 1930‚Äôs and began to popularize its use in Europe.¬† Most of the clinical research with Echinacea over the past 50 years has been done in Europe, and millions of Europeans now use Echinacea for immune support.
Maximum Absorption: Echinace Extra Strength provides maximum absorption.¬† Our Extra Strength formulas are made with concentrated herbal extracts, which are assimilated more completely than common powdered herbs.¬† Bioavailability of our Extra Strength herbs is further boosted by the addition of a patented black pepper extract, Bioperine¬ģ.¬† As part of our Extra Strength formulas, it actually increases the amount of herb crossing the intestinal lining into the bloodstream.¬† What this means to you is greater absorption, which equals greater benefits.
Convenience and Great Value: Our Extra Strength formulas give the convenience of taking one capsule per day for normal use.¬† This makes it easy to use them consistently for their full benefits.¬† Many products that need to be taken several times a day are not used with proper regularity, resulting in a loss of benefits.¬† In addition, our Extra Strength herbs are a great value.¬† A bottle of Extra Strength herbs may last two, or even three times as long as regular strength herbs with only a small increase in price.¬† The greater absorption provided by our Extra Strength formulas adds even more to the value.
SUGGESTED USE: ADULTS AND CHILDREN OVER 12: Normal use: 1 capsule daily, up to 8 weeks, followed by a 2 week break.¬† Short term use up to two weeks: 1 capsule twice a day.¬† CHILDREN 6 – 12: Mix 1/4 to 1/2 of contents of capsule per serving with food.
