I always find this time of year a bit of a struggle. The weather is getting colder, and the days shorter and darker earlier, and I am convinced that the germs seem to multiply faster and we fight off a multitude of bugs and illnesses. Going back to school after the summer seems to equal every lurgy known to man invading the house and making life miserable.
I am always keen to try something that might help ward off some of these nasties and make surviving winter that little bit easier.
Potter’s Elixir of Echinacea Plus is a useful thing to add to my arsenal of weapons against lurgies.
It’s a pleasant tasting syrup, to be taken 3 times a day.
“A traditional herbal medicinal product used to relieve the symptoms of the common cold and flu type infections and minor skin conditions, exclusively based on long-standing use as a traditional herbal remedy.
Created more than 80 years ago, Potter’s Elixir of Echinacea Plus is believed to be one of the oldest Echinacea formulations still available today.
Pleasant tasting and ready to use, Potter’s Elixir of Echinacea Plus is formulated with a specific species of echinacea,Echinacea angustifolia.This has been used to work synergistically with Wild Indigo and Fumitory to help the body fight back against infection.”
I have been taking it this past week, to fight off yet another cold, that I seem to have picked up. I have used other echinacea based remedies in the past, but some of them taste pretty awful, so it’s great to find one that doesn’t. Whilst it’s not a cure, but it can’t hurt to try and help fight off the germs and lurgies and it’s handy to have in my medicine cabinet. I don’t have much time to take off sick, so anything that helps me get back to normal faster and feel better is a must have in my book.
