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.

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.

  • Love it

    star

    Like many people I used to get an upper respiratory tract infection at least once every year and they were getting progressively more severe becoming deep set bronchial infections. I have bee taking this supplement for several years now and have not had an URT since I started. I am really happy with it and have recommended it to many friends.
