It is manufactured using highly sophisticated, proprietary EnviroSimplex® processing, which preserves the key actives responsible for echinacea’s effectiveness. Three key active compounds are isolated, concentrated, combined in the ideal clinically proven ratio, and delivered in a base of the whole herb so that none of the minor actives are missing.Herbal medicines are known to work best in combination.
