A. Vogel Echinacea is a herbal product that most of you will be familiar with, it's one of A. Vogel's best known remedies. It's commonly used to protect against colds, flu, and viral infection. Many customers swear by it, telling me that they feel it protects them each year from infection.
A. Vogel Immune Support is a new product from A. Vogel, one of my favourite companies. They seldom produce new products so I am excited to tell you about this one. It combines an interesting blend of vegan vitamin D (from lichen) vitamin C (from fresh Acerola cherry), and zinc, which all contribute to the normal functioning of the immune system, as well as Nasturtium all in the one formula.
Immune Support is a supplement that is easily absorbed as it's made from fresh plant material and naturally sourced ingredients. You simply take one tablet per day. This new product, Immune Support, is timely too; as I am sure there are few of us that don't know someone who has had the flu this year.
I think most of us are familiar with the health benefits of vitamin C, D, and Zinc but I was not familiar with Nasturtium. Nasturtium extract contains glucosinolates, which have an affinity for the lungs where they have antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory effects. Nasturtium has traditionally been taken for swollen airways, coughs, bronchitis, clearing mucus and acting as an expectorant. Additionally, nasturtium is a natural source of vitamin C. Vitamin C may help to reduce tiredness and fatigue during spells of sickness, a horrible part of being sick as daily life has to continue for most of us. This is an interesting combination from A.Vogel.
Echinaforce and Immune Support taken together would work in harmony to help get you through the final stage of exposure to the winter bugs.
However, if you're in the middle of fighting a cold or flu I would suggest A. Vogel Echinacea Hot Drink. This pleasant tasting drink can be taken up to 5 times per day to help your immune system be more effective at fighting bugs. You can take it alongside Immune Support.
