I take echinacea capsules twice daily as a boost to a badly damaged immune
system. In addition I take 3000 mg of C, B+, 800 units E, gingko biloba,
and a multi vitamin with minerals. Not to mention what I get from fresh
veggies from the garden. Since I started this regimen 2 years ago I am
feeling much better.
