Supporting Your Immune System
The immune system is our first, and most important, defense against disease and illness. It is an intricate network of cells, glands, and chemical mediators that help our body to resist and overcome infection. If the immune system is weakened from stress, poor diet, lifestyle imbalances, or by other underlying health conditions, this can make one more susceptible to illness.
What is Echinacea? (Echinacea angustifolia, E. purpurea)
Echinacea has been used by native peoples of North America for hundreds of years for promoting a healthy immune system response and helping to overcome infection. More recently, a large body of scientific evidence provides support for its traditional uses and has demonstrated the effectiveness of Echinacea upon immune health.
Extensive research has gone into determining what the active ingredients in Echinacea are, and how they function. The roots as well as aerial parts (leaves, flowers) are often used and/or combined, as both contain complementary, immunosupportive compounds.
Some of Echinacea's major active constituents include:
- polysaccharides (considered to be immunomodulating)
- phenols (cichoric, caffeic, and caftaric acids; echinacoside)
Prepared from two types of Echinacea: root of Echinacea angustifolium, plus root and leaf of E. purpurea, and standardized to 4% phenolic compounds for broader spectrum immune support.
Research has demonstrated that the multiple compounds in Echinacea exert a natural, antibiotic-like action in the body and support the production of white blood cells including T-cells, a group of immune cells that are especially important for defending against viruses.
What can Echinacea be used for?
Echinacea has been traditionally used for fever, cough, seasonal flu, respiratory tract infection and other infections, wound healing, and for postsurgical healing, and has a vast number of scientific studies supporting its immune system benefits. As a long-term tonic, it can be used as an immune booster for those with immune deficiency (e.g., chronic colds, flu, bacterial infections, slow healing wounds, bed sores, chemotherapy, etc.).
Note: Contrary to popular belief, Echinacea is safe for long-term use and will not decrease immune response when taken over time. This myth arose from a misinterpretation of a study that was done about 40 years ago, when it was translated (from German) into English.
Can Echinacea really help with colds & flu?
A large number of scientific studies have shown that Echinacea is extremely effective in supporting immune system function. A healthier immune system response may help one to resist infections such as the cold or flu, and/or lessen their severity or duration.
How long will it take before I see results?
Clinical studies have shown that Echinacea may lessen the severity and duration of colds and flu by between 1 to 4 days.
What is the recommended dosage?
Take 1 capsule up to eight times daily.
Can I take Echinacea with prescription drugs?
If you are taking any medications, inform your doctor of any supplements or natural remedies, prior to using.
Are there any side effects or precautions?
If you are pregnant, nursing, or have any health condition, consult your doctor before using.
