When your doctor tells you, “It’s a viral infection; antibiotics will have no effect,” that’s the time to turn to traditional remedies whose efficacy has been verified and improved upon by modern science.
Natural Factors Anti-Viral contains ECHINAMIDE®, the only standardized extract of Echinacea purpurea shown in placebo-controlled clinical trials to reduce the duration and severity of upper respiratory infections (URTIs). ECHINAMIDE is made from certified organic echinacea grown on Factors Farms® in BC’s Okanagan Valley. It is manufactured using highly sophisticated, proprietary EnviroSimplex® processing, which preserves the key actives responsible for echinacea’s effectiveness. Three key active compounds are isolated, concentrated, combined in the ideal clinically proven ratio, and delivered in a base of the whole herb so that none of the minor actives are missing.
Herbal medicines are known to work best in combination. Anti-Viral contains a proprietary blend of ECHINAMIDE, lomatium, astragalus, reishi, and licorice. Modern science has confirmed that each of these herbs enhances the immune system’s response to viral infections.
Anti-Viral is available as a liquid tincture, or as an alcohol-free extract in a softgel.
Each softgel contains:
Echinacea 25:1 extract (Echinacea purpurea) (herb top and root) 44 mg
