Stimulating and supportive. Boosts the immune system. Echinacea—or purple coneflower—was used by a number of Native American tribes for hundreds of years before it was introduced into Western herbal traditions. Echinacea is renowned and widely studied for its ability to promote a healthy immune system response. Our herbalists combined it with elderberry concentrate to add a deeply purple twist to our popular Echinacea Plus tea.
