ST.FRANCIS ECHINASEAL TINCTURE
St.Francis EchinaSeal helps to relieve sore throats and/or mouth and throat infections. It is the Foremost Infection Fighter
Featuring Echinacea and Goldenseal, EchinaSeal® has stood the test of years and remains one of our most highly regarded herbal formulas. Its bitter taste is its distinctive signature, a unique warrant of its outstanding effectiveness. This is the perfect remedy for upper respiratory infections—it doesn’t matter whether they’re viral or bacterial. If used at the first signs of cold or flu, more often than not EchinaSeal® will nip them in the bud.
Echinacea angustifolia and echinacea purpurea: Probably the most popular and most widely known of herbal remedies, echinacea is a drought-tolerant perennial plant that can grow up to four feet in height. With immunological properties, it is native to the United States and a member of the daisy family. Its name comes from the Greek that means "hedgehog"--a reference to its spiky central disk. The medicinal compounds in the purpurea species known as alkamides are more bioavailable when in the presence of those from the angustifolia species. This is the rationale behind our EchinAce formula.
Goldenseal: A perennial plant and member of the buttercup family, with a bright yellow rootstock that's reflective of its name, goldenseal is found natively throughout eastern North America.
Propolis: also called bee glue, propolis is a resinous substance produced by bees to seal their hives. It has been valued from ancient times for its antiseptic and wound-healing qualities.
Wild indigo: A perennial herb with yellow flowers, wild indigo can be found throughout eastern North America. Its root has been used medicinally for centuries beginning with the aboriginal peoples.
