Jamieson Flu Shield 40 Caps
FluShield™ is the result of a worldwide search for the most potent echinacea, a native North American wildflower and a well-known herbal medicine.
More than a decade in the making, FluShield™ contains the active ingredient LPx3, a premium and uniquely effective form of Echinacea angustifolia that was chosen from among 40 plant genotypes for its high concentration of immune-boosting polysaccharides. Through selective breeding, these medicinal compounds have been augmented and concentrated into the plant roots.
While antibiotics kill bacteria directly, the unique, high molecular weight polysaccharide in LPx3 boosts the body’s T-cells to fight off viral and bacterial invaders. Triple-standardized pharmaceutical processing captures the most beneficial plant compounds and removes immune-suppressing isobutylamides, which commonly occur in other echinacea formulas. Clinical evidence also shows that LPx3’s broad spectrum of echinacea compounds are more effective at preventing the flu than other echinacea formulas.
When you reach for echinacea, reach for the best. FluShield™ is the only flu-defense product formulated with proprietary, NPN-approved LPx3 echinacea.
Take 1 capsule, 3 times daily. May be used up to 21 days.
