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.

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.
I get Sick afterwards and my coworker recommended using this to support my immune system. I feel like I have felt a difference however I’m not as consistent with it anymore so that could affect me. I still usually recommend using this plant to my friends when they are feeling a cold coming in
Echinacea caused skin discomfort for me on my back and scalp. My skin was ichy and seemed foreign to the rest of me. It also caused a general discomfort. I took it to boost my immune system. I don't know if it did that.
Great product to amp up the immune system and stave off colds. Daily requirement during cold season and when I feel a cold coming on any time of year. I am partial to the NOW brand. I've purchased several NOW items and found them to be high quality!
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.
I take these when I don't feel so good. seems to do the job every time. have used for different conditions. a great go to instead of an antibiotic. of course consult the doc. but I have no problems with this.
