Planetary Formulas Echinacea Root contains 1,000 mg of freshly harvested, wildcrafted echinacea root.
Since it was first introduced into American Medicine by Native Americans in the late 1800's, Echinacea has been one of the most widely used herbs on this continent. With modern research, scientists worldwide are validating the many ways in which Echinacea can strengthen the body's defenses. Echinacea's popularity continues to grow - it is one of the most useful herbs to keep on hand for household use.
Planetary Formulas offers three different products containing premium grade, freshly harvested, pure Echinacea. Obtaining freshly harvested material is essential because Echinacea plants rapidly lose their potency when exposed to heat and light. Once powdered, they can lose their strength in as little as six months. Our harvesters send us whole roots of the current seasonís Echinacea. The roots are custom powdered, tableted or extracted immediately, and placed in tightly sealed, light-proof or amber bottles. This insures that every bit of Echinacea potency is maintained. When properly prepared, Echinacea can remain vitally potent for years.
Echinacea Root Tablets contain 1000 mg of premium grade pure Echinacea angustifolia and Echinacea pallida roots. Each shipment is inspected by a trained herbalist to insure purity and quality. If it does not meet our standards, it does not go into our product.
