Just got some as its alot cheaper than EPO :lol:

£12.74 for 360, 3200mg tabs going to take 9.6g a day will report back.

Second time i've been silly enough to buy something like this but even if it only gives me cold protection i'll take that, plus first time around was CLA which I still use

    Where did you get those from mate?
    Best I could find was 120 for £7.95. 160mg concentrated so the equivalent of 3200mg.

    I don't use this, I seem to be immune enough to colds etc
    Here is a reliable article on Echinacea

    Do you guys believe EVERYTHING you read in Cycling Weakly?

    Jeez, there's one born every minute.

    I use it for colds anyway but surely it's irrelevant that it was in Cycling +/Weekly??
    They didn't do the research etc.

    Ah, fair enough, I was purusing cycling mags in my local library (aka WHSmith) and couldn't remember which rag it was.

    I take the stuff for colds but the bottle i have from Holland & Rip-Off says not to take more than one squirt of the eye-dropper 4 times a day.
