Overview

Blackmores Echinacea Forte helps to relieve the symptoms of colds and flu. Echinacea has traditionally been used for the symptomatic relief of sore throats and coughs associated with the common cold and flu. It may help to shorten the duration and decrease the severity of cold symptoms, as well as helping to decrease the incidence of colds. Echinacea helps to support the healthy functioning of the immune system.

Echinacea has been shown to stimulate the immune system and reduce the duration of colds and minor infections of the 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.
