Building Immunity

Building Immunity

Posted by

With increasing concern about the spread of new viruses, one of the best ways we can help protect ourselves against these, is to look after our immune system.

Echinacea is a humble plant that has been looking after us quietly for many hundreds of years and will continue to do so, brilliantly. It is a herbal superhero, your secret weapon against a range of unwanted microbes, aka bugs!

But wait there’s more - not only does Echinacea totally boost your overall immune function, it’s not just helping the soldiers, it’s a defence in itself. What a superhero.

High-quality potent Kiwiherb Echinacea will make you tingle!

High potency, good quality Echinacea will make your tongue tingle. Yes, seriously.  We now know that the most active constituents in Echinacea are the alkylamides. When these are present they’ll make your tongue tingly and cause you to salivate a little. So, the better the Echinacea, the more you tingle. It’s a really simple test - if you get the buzz it means your immune system is getting that buzz and ramping up its activity. 

These buzzing alkylamides are concentrated most highly in the root, so always look for a root extract, preferably organic.

It’s easy to check the quality when you have a liquid Echinacea product and you’ll, experience the tingle with every dose of Kiwiherb Echinacea. Taking a little bit of Echinacea every day will help defend you and your family by building immunity, but remember to take the full recommended dose if you are sick. You can take Echinacea straight or pop it in your herbal cuppa or your children’s drink bottle - they’ll dig the tingle too!

So sing it from the rooftops, Kiwiherb Echinacea is a star, an immunity-boosting super herb traditionally used in Western Herbal Medicine and we’ve got a number of products you can get your daily dose from.
