Echinacea is my go to for most things, wouldn't be without it. When I catch a cold or bladder infection early enough I can avoid the doctor visit. I like Now brand products and this was a good buy. Don't take Echinacea daily like a vitamin, only when needed for 2 weeks at a time.
1.0 out of 5 starsUsed to love them – – but this batch has a terrible smell

I have use this product for a number of years with great success and satisfaction. However, this last batch has a terrible plasticky smell, and it’s hard to even get them down as a result. It also makes me worry about what is in them to make them smell so strongly of plastic.
On three different occasions I've had my husband and another visiting family member get extremely ill (common cold, URI, flu etc). From the onset of their symptoms I began taking the supplement twice a day for a week or so and never got more than a sniffle when they were so deathly ill. Something in this actually works. I'm normally the one who gets dog sick b/c someone sneezed near me, so the fact most of my family was so sick and I never had more than a slight runny nose speaks volumes to me.
I took these postpartum to prevent uterine infection & mastitis. I have difficulty swallowing pills, even normal size capsules like these. These capsules are easy to pull apart so I just take them in applesauce, it doesn't taste horrible.
Love all of the Now Foods products and have been buying them for years!! A family owned business that takes pride in manufacturing without all the unnecessary added ingredients. Ordering them on Amazon has made it even easier to obtain them and saves me a trip to the store! Has definitely helped my nails stay strong and grow longer! Will reorder.
