MONTREAL, Oct. 28, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - A.Vogel's Echinaforce® has been keeping Canadians' immune systems strong for over 50 years. Now with the addition of three new products to our clinically proven Health Canada claims for the prevention and treatment of cold and flu, we just got better.
Each winter, seasonal viruses put millions of people out of commission. With these ever so dreaded infections at our doorstep once again, immunity is the magic word.
Unless you live in a bubble, you will be exposed to infections. Minimizing the risk of contracting them is the name of the game. But how does one successfully ward off the winter germs lurking on every doorknob, in every public bathroom and on every grab rail of your morning train or bus to work or school. Well, that's easy… practice prevention by maintaining a strong immune system and you'll stay healthy all season long.
Perhaps the most popular immune-modulator is Echinacea Purpurea. In 2012, Cardiff University's Common Cold Center completed the largest clinical study to date on Echinacea purpurea using Echinaforce® a proprietary extract obtained from fresh organic, GMO free plants. It was a double-blind placebo controlled study with 755 participants for the duration of 4 months at 3 to 5 doses a day of Echinaforce® to examine the impact on long term use at maximal dosage.
The study clinically proved that this particular preparation of Echinacea was effective in modulating the immune system and in reducing the incidence and duration of cold and flu symptoms.
As a result, Health Canada approved the original Echinaforce® for both prevention and treatment of the common cold and flu, and deemed it safe to take as directed for up to four months. Today, A. Vogel Canada is pleased to announce that three new products in the line have been given the same license and approval, Echinaforce® Extra and Echinaforce® Junior and Echinaforce® Hot Drink.
Echinaforce® is a great way to stay healthy during the upcoming winter months for the whole family, particularly for expecting and nursing mothers and children ages 2 and up.
Protect yourself this season by learning about which product from the Echinaforce® line is right for you.
