Kiwiherb Releases its Organic Children’s Echinacea

Kiwiherb, New Zealand manufacturers of organic herbal products, have just released their new product, an organic Children’s Echinacea.

With the start of winter and growing concerns about new infectious diseases, the release of this product designed specifically to support children’s immune systems is very timely.

Kiwiherb’s Children’s Echinacea may be useful as a preventative to help ward off winter colds and viruses in infants and young children, or in larger doses to support healing during an infection that has already developed.

Kiwiherb Children’s Echinacea is an alcohol-free, liquid Echinacea. It has been developed to contain therapeutic levels of active immunostimulant chemicals designed to boost the natural immunity in children of all ages, yet also to appeal to children with the fussiest of tastebuds.

The Kiwiherb brand is produced by Phytomed Medicinal Herbs Ltd, a New Zealand owned and Auckland-based manufacturer of innovative herbal formulations including some based on native plant extracts.

The Echinacea range was formulated by Phytomed’s founder and managing director Phil Rasmussen, a highly qualified pharmacist and medical herbalist, with a background in pharmacological research.

“Kiwiherb only uses Echinacea root in its products, as research shows this to be the strongest part of the plant, with the highest concentration of immunity boosting chemicals known as alkylamides,” explains Rasmussen. According to Rasmussen, the dosage and strength of Echinacea products taken is critical for the effectiveness of this herb. “It is of some concern to me that the quality of certain Echinacea containing products sold in the New Zealand market is such that beneficial results are unlikely to be achieved”, says Rasmussen. “Being produced from freshly-harvested top quality New Zealand grown Echinacea, and tested by Crop and Food Research in Dunedin, we are confident in the safety, and in the high chance of effectiveness, of all Kiwiherb Echinacea products.”

Kiwiherb Children’s Echinacea is manufactured from New Zealand grown organic Echinacea purpurea root, and is Certified Organic by New Zealand’s premier organic certification agency, Bio-Gro. It is available from pharmacies and health food stores nationwide.
