Echinacea is an immune system stimulant(not a tonic) and is antiivirial and anti bacterial. However it's effectiveness is over blown by the commercial supplement industry. It is effective right at the onset of a cold or flu. You do need to take it frequently at the onset. Take one full dropper every hour or two. Research shows it is more effective in children than in adults. I struggled to give this a 3 star review, as it is lacking the key ingredient to be most effective. This product is made from the purpurea species of echinacea. The more effective species against infection is the angustifolia species. Look for tinctures that are made from the angustifolia strain to get the best results. Unfortunately it is harder to find the angustifolia strain as the purpurea is easier to grow. To learn more about echinacea I would recommend you read Stephen Harrod Buhner "Herbal Antibiotics". He is a brilliant herbal researcher and cites his work very well. I really like the Herb Pharm brand but I think they missed a good opportunity here to make the best echinacea product. If this is all you have use it. It will likely have some effect but you are not using the better echinacea product. If you liked this review please click on the YES button and visit my iHerb home page for more value added reviews.

Excellent organic Echinacea; grown on their own farm; organic alcohol!
I've tried the others ...

The other brands don't compare. I think this one is the best in quality and purity. Also, the taste doesn't make me gag.

I use this for my children when I see signs of a cold and it cuts it very quickly.

I've been using this for years. Anytime my colleagues are sick or I start feeling any hint of catching a cold I take it and never get sick.

Made from all the parts of the plant, which makes it more potent and is a great booster for the immune system.
