Traditional Medicinals Organic Echinacea Plus activates and stimulates immune cells, helping you to reduce the duration of symptoms. It’s clinically tested! Organic Echinacea Plus was the subject of a double blind, placebo-controlled clinical study showing it was effective in reducing symptoms as well as shortening their duration. Echinacea Plus has a fresh and mild mint flavor with a twist of citrus. You can taste a characteristic tingle on your tongue from the alkylamides in echinacea, which is one of the important indicators of herb quality.
