This syrup contains a broad range of healing herbs and plant oils that work well together. The addition of mullein and horehound makes it also a superior expectorant, breaking up phlegm. More than just suppressing the urge to cough, this unique syrup containsEchinacea purpurea actives, including polysaccharides, cichoric acid and alkylamides, to harness the body's own healing power. The high fraction of echinacea polysaccharides linger in the throat, prolonging the antibacterial and antiviral effect.
The Cold & Cough Syrup is in a base of Natural Factors echinacea honey gathered from hives in Factor Farms echinacea fields. This makes the syrup taste delicious and more effective medicinally, as honey is both an antiseptic and antibacterial.
Anti-Cold describes a super-extracted Echinacea purpurea liquid that guarantees high levels of alkylamides, polysaccharides and cichoric acid, (together or individually). A proprietary double extraction process obtains the water-extracted polysaccharides and cichoric acid, as well as the alcohol-extracted alkylamides. These are the three key actives that are responsible for echinacea's effectiveness in clinical studies and that contribute to make echinacea one of the world's most popular herbs for immune support.
