I just start a bad cold

I just start a bad cold I took @ tablets at time .3 time and I run out but it was enough to brake the cold this echinaforce is very good

best product I have ever used for colds

This is the best product I have ever used for colds. Pills did not work for me and other brands were no match to your product. I always have a bottle in my kitchen. For the last 15 years never had a cold & if I feel I am getting one then Echinacea for the rescue. My mom is 88 years old & never had a flu shot instead she uses your product whenever she needs it. My only wish is the price is kind of too expensive for me since I am on a low pension income. Thank You for a great product

Prevention

When start to feel that I am going to get a flu. I start using the drops and in a matter of hours,the flu symptoms disappear. I am so confident that I don't even worry about getting into contact with some-one who has flu already. Great stuff!!
