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.

  • Excellent product

    star

    I brought these as it is getting to winter and I try everything to avoid any cold I catch from turning into a sinus infection as that seems to be what happens to me when I catch one, so I'd been having a sore throat and cough for about 4 days and getting worried a cold was on its way as my children all had one, about 24hours after taking 2 vitamin C tablets my sore throat and cough were gone, now that could have been a coincidence but I truely think they worked on me and I'll be buying them all through winter to fight off any cold coming my way, also I love buying from Healthpost it has the fastest delivery EVER sometimes under 24 hours and the prices you cannot best. Thanks Healthpost.
