Echinacea is a powerful stimulator for the immune system, given to us by the nature. It is also called “natural antibiotic”. Unlike the traditional antibiotics that kill bacteria directly, Echinacea acts through stimulating the immune response, thus not causing any harmful consequences for our organism. Echinacea has the ability to actively purify the lymphatic system, blood, kidneys and liver.
The mechanism of Echinacea’s beneficial effects is simple: it stimulates the production of T-lymphocytes and B-lymphocytes that fight infections. It supports their immune activity and activates the synthesis of interferon. It is well known that interferon is one of the most powerful weapons our organism has against the infections, by destroying pathogens and preventing their reproduction. The interferon also increases the biological capacity of the macrophages – cells that are able to “absorb” pathogens.
Echinacea is so harmless and so useful that besides being good for adults, it is also harmless and very useful for children over 4 years of age, being entirely helpful as a prophylactic mean for enhancing their fragile immune system and strengthening their organism.
Echinacea is so popular that in Great Britain only its sales equal 30 million pounds per year. During the winter season one daily dosage is bought every minute.
Echinacea origins from North America where it has been well known for centuries as a weapon against a number of infections. It contains highly active ingredients. The Echinacea plant is highly effective against more than 200 different viruses and other pathogen microorganisms. Besides, Echinacea also effectively suppresses the growth of Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, the Herpes virus and the flu virus.
