Our Experts Say

We’re proud to carry this unique formula from Gaia, a brand that meets our rigorous standards for purity and efficacy. Quick Defense, unlike other echinacea-based cold supplements, contains two species of the medicinal herb to pack an ultra-potent punch. Take Quick Defense at the onset of your symptoms to nip a cold or immune irritation in the bud, without the drowsiness of traditional over-the-counter options.

Active Alkylamides
Alkylamides are a class of compounds found in plants that have a variety of potential health benefits. They have been shown to have anti-inflammatory, analgesic (pain-relieving), and antipsychotic effects. Some alkylamides, such as those found in the root of the echinacea plant, are used for their immune-boosting properties and usefulness in the treatment of upper respiratory infections.
Ethically Sourced
Gaia's sustainability-forward approach to crafting herbal medicine includes an emphasis on traceability. Ecologically harvested herbs are paired with organically grown medicinals in Quick Defense, making it one of the cleanest herbal options available.
Organic Herbal Compounds
Working alongside the powerhouse echinacea extract blend to strengthen and defend the immune system are potent support herbs, like organic ginger root and organic elderberry, as well as ethically sourced andrographis leaf.

How to Use

Daily Use

Adults take 2 capsules 5 times daily for 2 days at onset. Repeat if necessary.

A common medicinal herb, elderberry has been found to have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antiviral properties. As such, it is traditionally used to help alleviate common cold symptoms.

Used across the world for addressing an array of diseases, andrographis and its active compounds can have antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and immunomodulatory effects on the body.

Traditionally used to help reduce fever and alleviate common cold symptoms, ginger has been found to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and analgesic properties.

Quick defense

This is the only product of its type that has been effective for me. On 3 separate occasions I took it at the first sign of a scratchy throat and symptoms did not continue into a full fledged cold. I think it's important to take it at the high frequency noted on the bottle.
