Ingredients & DescriptionEchinacea Glycerites are a great tasting alternative to traditional liquid supplements. The bitter, pungent taste of Echinacea in liquid extract form makes it difficult for many people, especially children, to ingest. The Echinacea used in Echinacea Glycerites is first extracted in alcohol to harness all the benefits of the herb. Then, the alcohol is evaporated off and naturally sweet glycerin is used as the carrier. Available in delicious lemon, peppermint and orange flavors, these are sure to be a hit with kids of any age!
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.
