Blackmores Echinacea ACE + Zinc 60 Tablets February 2025
Blackmores Echinacea ACE + Zinc is a lower dose, daily supplement that combines echinacea with antioxidant nutrients to support healthy immune function and relieve the symptoms of mild upper respiratory tract infection.
Echinacea works by increasing the number of white blood cells in the immune system when they are low. White blood cells are involved in defending the body against foreign micro-organisms. Echinacea also stimulates a group of immune system cells called phagocytes, which fight bacteria or other foreign bodies.
The antioxidant Vitamins C and E, betacarotene and zinc provide relief from the symptoms of colds and flu including sore throat and cough. It may also shorten the duration and decrease the severity of cold symptoms and decrease the incidence of colds.
