Echinaforce® Junior is ideal when you are looking for an effective product that offers your child daily immune support as well as helps prevent and treat colds, flu and their complications. Echinaforce Junior is specially formulated for children, with a pleasant orange-flavoured chewable tablet that's easy to take.
Echinaforce® Junior contains the same herbal extract of freshly harvested Echinacea purpurea that goes into our well known Echinaforce®Echinacea Drops and Tablets. It may be used by children (over the age of 2 years) to help strengthen their immune systems and fight the misery of colds and flu. If children do get sick, Echinaforce® Junior helps lessen the severity and duration of symptoms, so they’ll get better quicker. Also it helps to prevent the complications that often lead to otitis (ear infections), tonsillitis, sinusitis, bronchitis and pneumonia, which in turn means it can help reduce the need for antibiotics.

Many symptoms are similar, such as a sore throat and coughing, but there are several differences that help distinguish between a cold and flu. While many people will say they have flu, the fact is most winter infections are due to the cold virus and these infections usually clear up within a week to ten days.
