A.Vogel Celebrates Ontario's Heritage Flower -- The Purple Coneflower: aka Echinacea!! My super fav!!

Please select a reason

OK! Not only is this amazing flower native to Ontario and super bee-friendly -- so, plant these!! But, it's really one of my all-time favourites to support immune function and inflammation. A. Vogel, or Bioforce has really nailed it! Alfred Vogel has been at the forefront of health since 1923! Bioforce celebrates ingredients old school style but with current and MANY clinical studies! (Do check out their site!) Not too long ago, they were able to get this echinacea approved for breastfeeding! Wow!! That's a huge accomplishment and goes to show just how functional and amazing it is! I've been using this for myself and my husband for around 20 years and now my daughter seems to dodge a lot of daycare colds with it too! It has become a staple in my cupboard and I've lost count of how many colds and flu's that I've thwarted! Oh! And I prefer to dissolve the tablet in my mouth for the best results - just note that because it is a fresh extract - it tingles, so it's nice for a sore throat too!!! And please do respect that it is related to ragweed and daisies (however, it is an extract) - so there can be allergies related to this flower. Interestingly though, I have pretty severe hayfever and I do really well with this extract!! Huh! I consider myself lucky -- but, I have seen reactions in people - so, just stay informed and know your limits!!

Stay safe and healthy!
