Echinacea Info

Echinacea is a perennial plant with purple blossoms, commonly known as ‘coneflower’. Native to eastern and central North America, Echinacea was widely used by the North American Plains Indians to treat infections and as a general health promoter. There are 3 different species of Echinacea used medicinally: Echinacea angustifolia, Echinacea pallida, and Echinacea purpurea. There is strong research showing that the root of both angustifolia and pallida is most effective, while in purpurea the fresh flowering tops have the best medicinal effect. Some supplements combine the three species for maximum effect.

Echinacea Benefits

Echinacea is probably the primary herb for stimulating immune system function. It promotes the activation of T-cells and formation of white blood cells, the body’s defence against infection.

Due to its immune promoting properties echinacea is effective against most bacterial, viral and fungal infections and as an anti-parasitic. It is a specific in treating HIV/ AIDS and in colds, flu and all kinds of upper respiratory tract conditions. Skin, urinary tract, genital and gum infections are all indications for Echinacea. It is used intravenously to treat some cancers and can be an important part of a healing regime in treating many other diseases.

Echinacea Side Effects

Echinacea is generally a safe and effective medicine when used as recommended. Safe to use in pregnancy, breastfeeding, for babies and children at recommended dosages. There are rare cases of allergic rash or asthma occurring in people who are also allergic to ragweed, chrysanthemums, marigolds, and daisies.

  • GREAT PREVENTATIVE

    star

    I love this product and recommend it to anyone. I have not had a cold or sniffle in the last 2-3 years (even though I've been through lots of stress!). At the first sign of anything 'snotty' I tell the kids to take it and usually gets rid of any symptoms very quickly.

  • Highly recommend

    star

    Got this product as my young one was bringing home some sickness almost fortnightly from creche. I work long hours and have a fairly pressured job so found I was picking up the flu or cold on a regular basis and it would do the rounds around home.
    I am a pretty healthy guy but had enough of being crook every other week. I also have a 11 month old.
    Have been using the Systemwell Ultimate tablets and have one a day or dose up on a couple if I feel something coming on. Though it is now winter and the litle one still brings stuff home I had not been sick for well over a couple of months. Stopped taking them about a week ago and guess what..... Now i'm restocking. This stuff works. Cheers.

  • Excellent product

    star

    I have been using this for about one year. In the past when I was not taking this tablet I would become sick
    every 3 months but now I feel good and do not have to miss work. I have recommended the product to my
    friends.
