In general, a supplement produces some good effect from the beginning of taking it.
Ya’ know, something is better than nothing.
On average, I expect to see optimum results after 8 weeks of taking supplements on a regular basis.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but herbal treatments are not a fast cure.I would allow 48-72 hours for the treatments to work.
Also use of caffeine,alcohol and sugar will inhibit the treatments.

Be patient.

they start to work right away. The first thing you start the expensive pee disposal. Cause that’s where all that junk ends up. Just like excessive vitamins you just piss them off. I don’t know who sold you this junk but I think you should get your money back and give it to a doctor.

Please discuss taking these supplements with your doctor. Take the bottles with you to an appointment so the doctor can check the ingredients. If you’re currently take any prescribed meds, you have to be very careful, when taking herbal supplements. Some supplements can work against each other and/or cause prescribed meds to be less effective. I don’t know how old you are but once a person turns 40, they need to have an eye examination done yearly. Early detection of an eye problem, can be caught & treated before it gets worse in most but not all cases.

I do not think any of this stuff is going to do you any good. Go to an ophthalmologist (eye doctor). That echinechea is supposed to be good for colds and viruses. I grow it in my yard as flowers which are pretty, but so far as doing your eye any good, I doubt it very seriously. I tried that Red Google Rice stuff from the health food store for my cholesterol, and it did nothing period.

Echinacea is a popular herb used to reduce the symptoms and duration of the common cold. According to the Nutrition Business Journal, Americans spent an estimated $ 155 million on echinacea in 2004.

Researchers led by Ronald Turner, MD, of the University of Virginia School of Medicine, however, recently published findings showing that echinacea had no effect on preventing colds or reducing the severity and duration of cold symptoms.

The study was funded by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, a branch of the federal National Institutes of Health. The study took more than three years and cost $ 2.2 million.
