Summer seems to have come to an abrupt end. All too soon our beloved long days, sun filled skies, hot temperatures with cold drinks in our hands have turned into heat in our cars, scarves around our necks and a nice warm cup of coffee (Bulletproof for us!) in our bellies.  With winter coming up so shortly it’s hard not to think of the dreaded winter cold. But have no fear, Birk Labs Immune Upgrade is here to have your back (see what we did there ;) ).

Birk Labs Immune Upgrade uses the natural herb Echinacea in order to boost the immune system, cutting the chances of catching a common cold and flu by up to 58%. It also reduces the duration of your cold by a day and a half! Don’t worry, you can still call in sick for the full amount of days we won’t tell! Along with immunity assists, Echinacea has multiple other medicinal benefits as well A few of them are listed below:



  1. Infection Fighter

According to the NIH (National Institute of Health) Echinacea is a breakthrough remedy for many other infections such as bloodstream, genital, urinary tract and yeast. It’s also known to help with malaria, gum disease, syphilis and typhoid.

  1. Upper Respiratory Aid

Due to its immunity boosting and anti-inflammatory properties, Echinacea helps with acute sinusitis, flu’s, asthma, croup, diphtheria, inflammation, strep throat, tuberculosis and whooping cough. In fact, it’s been said to be a complete substitute for synthetic asthma remedies such as the inhaler!

  1. Improves Mental Health

Angustifolia is the prescribed strain of Echinacea to aid with ADD/ADHD, anxiety, depression and social phobias at approximately 20 mg at a time and no more. Taking any more than this can actually reverse the benefits that aid anxiety.

  1. Helps with Chronic and Insect Induced Skin Irritants

In multiple Native American tribes it’s been used to help treat eczema, inflammatory skin conditions, psoriasis, snake bites, skin infections, stings and general wound healing.

We could go on forever! The benefits of Echinacea seem to be never ending and consistently showing up in scientific studies for everything from pain alleviation to even combating cancer! Come on in to get your Immune Upgrade today and avoid the Cold and Flu this coming season.
