WHAT IS ECHINACEA?
Echinacea is an herb that was widely used as a multipurpose cure by American Indians and was incorporated in many patent medicines earlier in the century until it was replaced by antibiotics.
Echinacea stimulates the thymus gland which is the main organ involved in the body’s immune system responses to infection. Echinacea also stimulates certain white blood cells to neutralize harmful substances. It actually stimulates the production of Interferon. Laboratory tests have found that compounds contained in echinacea have the ability to rearrange and recognize enzyme patterns in the body. Echinacea also boosts lymphatic cleansing of the blood.
Over a dozen studies have taken place over the last few years about the power of Echinacea when it comes to the immune system, and all of the studies have found that regular consumption of the plant helps boost the immune system. In fact, regular use of Echinacea can help reduce the chances of catching a cold by over 50%.
