What does a Vogel Echinaforce do?
Sore throats are among the most common complaints encountered in general medical practice & usually occur in conjunction with upper respiratory tract infections. Viral infections account for at least 65% of all sore throats, so the use of antibiotics only plays a minor part in the treatment of sore throats. This product has an acute anaesthetic and Anti-Inflammatory action in sore throats, as well as beneficially influencing the further course of the illness due to the immuno modulatory, antiviral & antibacterial properties of the herbs. It has a soothing effect on dry sore throats and delivers the aforementioned herbal extracts directly to the throat where it is readily absorbed.
Does echinacea throat spray work?
Take a look at the findings of this clinical research:
- A multicentre, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, double-dummy study to assess the efficacy & tolerability of A.Vogel Throat Spray compared to a chlorhexidine/lidocaine spray in patients with acute sore throats.
- This trial was conducted in accordance with the ICH-GCP guidelines.
- 151 patients were recruited, aged between 12 & 75, with acute pharyngitis or tonsilitis with throat pain & inflammation of the pharynx and/or tonsils, & onset of the sore throat less than 72 hours prior to the start of the study. The study was continued until the patients were symptom-free, up to a maximum of 5 days.
- The response rates after the first day of treatment were 13% in the Vogel group & 14.1% in the Collunosol group.
- The response rates after the second day of treatment were 39.1% in both groups.
- The response rates after the third day of treatment were 63.8% in the Vogel group & 57.8% in the Collunosol group.
- The combined results showed that Vogel's Throat Spray was as good as Collunosol spray for the resolution of symptoms of sore throat.
It is best to use the spray after meals. There is no need for water – just spray it into your mouth & throat. 2 sprays = 0.44ml = 1 Echinaforce Echinacea Tablet(250mg) or 11 drops of Echinaforce Echinacea Drops.
- Adults: 2 sprays twice daily. In acute cases: 2 sprays 6-10 times per day as required.
- Children (6-12 years): 1 spray twice daily. In acute cases: 1 spray 6-10 times per day as required.
