How does Echinacea work?
A.Vogel Echinaforce® Extra-Strength Hot Drink is an effective combination of organically grown Echinacea purpurea and Elderberry. Studies show that the polysaccharides and polyacetylenes components of Echinacea purpurea are capable of stimulating macrophages of the immune system and the production of cytokines like interleukine-1, interleukine-6 (also called interferon beta), interleukine-10 and TNF alpha factor. With this powerful combination, it can help boost the performance of our immune system.
