Immuno Umph! combines the power of Echinacea with Osha, Astragalus, and Elephant Tree, a sacred Native American herb.

One study even suggests that echinacea extract exerted an antiviral action on the development of recurrent cold sores triggered by the herpes simplex virus (HSVI) when taken prior to infection.
Osha has been used for centuries in traditional Native American and Hispanic cultures to treat medical conditions such as colds, coughs, sore throat, skin wounds, fever, gastrointestinal problems, and circulation and heart issues.

It should also be noted that this amazing herb is unsafe to consume when you're pregnant or breastfeeding.
For thousands of years Astragalus has been written about in ancient eastern medicinal texts. It is usually mentioned in regard to increased energy and general wellness. More recently, it’s been found to combat the effects of stress on the body, and to support the immune system’s defense mechanisms.
