While the excitement of travelling and going on holiday mostly consists of packing clothes, food and toys for the children (or dogs), we sometimes forget the most important thing of all – a first aid kit! Now, we are not just referring to off the shelf first aid kits found in almost every pharmacy, but also the must-haves that don’t always come to mind at first thought.

Here, we have listed key products that you should never travel without:

A.Vogel Echinaforce®

A.Vogel Echinaforce

A.Vogel Echinaforce is the most researched and effective echinacea product in the world and should be used every day by everyone. While you are on holiday your immune system is still working hard to protect your body from any infections. Echinaforce is clinically proven to prevent and treat colds, flu, upper respiratory infections, and even mild urinary tract infections.

Echinaforce works in two ways,

  1. By preventing a virus from penetrating the body’s cells and helping prevent any replication of the virus.
  2. Directly killing invading viruses.

No one wants to get sick while being on holiday. Read more about A.Vogel Echinaforce® here.
