Is Echinacea Goldenseal Right For You?
Echinacea Goldenseal is an herbal supplement that aims to provide support to the immune system and protect mucous membranes. Gaia Herbs manufacture the product.
Gaia Herbs is a US vertically integrated company from North Carolina with more than 25 years experience on the herbal remedies market. It owns one of the largest farms of medicinal herbs in the US, having 250 acres of land on which they cultivate 50 certified organic crops. According to the official website of the company, Gaia Herbs is the leading manufacturer of certified organic products based on herbs.
According to the manufacturer, Echinacea Goldenseal is a very potent herbal remedy due to the concentration of active ingredients (one capsule contains 875 mg of dry herb equivalent). Moreover, the capsules are 100% vegetarian and are made according to a Gaia Herbs patented technology that allows for quick disintegration in the stomach, i.e. in ten to twelve minutes after ingestion. The manufacturer states that these capsules are much more efficient than those made of gelatin or soft-gel. The product is addressed to people with respiratory problems as it supports mucous membranes and to those needing to enhance their immune system in times of seasonal stress. It should not be used by pregnant women or nursing mothers.
