When spring arrives, it also brings with it the annoying flu and allergy symptoms. Sudden changes in temperature can lead to the onset of unpleasant flu and para-flu states and for this reason it is important to strengthen the immune system.


The first essential step to strengthen the defenses is to follow a healthy lifestyle and a correct and balanced diet, rich in fruit and vegetables that provide essential nutrients for the immune system such as vitamins and minerals .

Sleep also affects the immune system. Deprivation of adequate rest weakens it. Sleeping badly can make people with sleep disorders weaker, therefore unable to fight 100% viruses and bacteria. Several studies and experts state that 7-8 hours of quality sleep guarantee maximum efficiency of the immune system, without compromising its functionality. According to a survey shared by the National Health Service (NHS), less than 4-5 hours of sleep per night increases the chance of contracting even a simple cold by 4-5 times, compared to people with a night's sleep of about 7 hours.


Echinocaps immuno is composed of a synergy of remedies that work to raise the immune defenses:

  • Vitamin C , also called ascorbic acid, is a micronutrient that performs a number of fundamental functions for the body. It is a powerful antioxidant that prevents oxidative damage also caused by cellular aging. EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) reiterates the importance of the functioning of vitamin C in the immune system. It performs an immunostimulating action, therefore both in the preventive phase and in the curative phase of bacterial infections, but especially viral ones.
  • Elderberry or Sambucus nigra strengthens the immune defenses. Its active ingredients affect the activity of the immune system and reduce inflammation. Ideal for viral infections such as flu and fever. Elderberry syrup is known to be a marvelous remedy for the numbness and muscle pain of flu. It also has a diaphoretic action, lowering fever even in pediatric use.
  • Echinacea , plant with immunostimulating and immunomodulating properties. One of the plants mostly used for this purpose. It is a real natural antibiotic, widely used for the treatment of respiratory diseases. It has also been recognized by the Modern Pharmacopoeia and the European Medicines Agency (EMEA) who have recognized and approved its use for short-term prevention and treatment of colds.
  • Uncaria or Uncaria tumentosa is a plant with strong immunostimulating and antiviral properties. Useful for the most common cold diseases: pharyngitis, laryngitis, flu, cold, sore throat.
  • Zinc and Copper are essential minerals for the functioning of the immune system, along with the six vitamins (D, A, C, folate, B6, B12 ). In fact, according to a study conducted last year after the outbreak of the pandemic, it was found that in order to defend ourselves from external pathogenic attacks, such as viruses and bacteria, it is essential to raise the defenses with the intake of these certain micronutrients, included in the diet or taken through an integration.
