Benefits of Echinacea
- Supports Healthy Immune Defenses.
- Winter Health Support
- Botanical Blood Purifier
Echinacea has long been esteemed as diverse and powerful immune system stimulator providing significant therapeutic value. Echinacea plays a significant supporting role in cutting the cold for common cold symptoms.
In-depth studies suggest that complex substances called “phenolic compounds” are responsible for Echinacea’s immune boosting abilities. Echinacea is thought to promote and stimulate cells whose primary function is to fight invading particles and organisms. Echinacea contributes to the increase of white blood cells and spleen cells which promotes a higher body temperature. A higher body temperature aids in accelerating the internal workings of cells meaning disease fighting cells respond faster and immune responses increase. The desired effect resulting in a two-pronged attack against disease.
Echinacea also contains a compound called echinacein, which aids in the fight against bacterial and viral infections. In folklore history the Indigenous peoples of North America often used Echinacea root for poultices on wounds, bites, stings, and snakebites.
