Echinacea Extract Information:

Echinacea angustifolia rhizome was used by North American Plains Indians, perhaps more than most other plants, for various herbal remedies. Echinacea was one of the basic antimicrobial herbs of Eclectic medicine in the mid 1800s through the early 1900s and its use was documented for snakebite and anthrax. In the 1930s "Echinacea" became popular in both Europe and America as a herbal medicine.

Benefits and Uses:

Echinacea stimulates the body's immune system against all infectious and inflammatory, conditions, counteracts pus, and stimulates digestion. It specifically strengthens the immune system against pathogenic infection by stimulating phagocytosis, T-cell formation, and by inhibiting the hyalurinadase enzyme secreted by bacteria to effect the breakdown of remedies against all kinds of bacterial and viral infections.

Funication Effects:

1.Immunostimulant effects
Echinacea is popularly believed to be an immunostimulator, stimulating the body's immune system and warding off infections,particularly the common cold. However, its clinical efficacy has not been established.

2.Prevention and treatment of colds
A meta-analysis of all in-vivo clinical research studies regarding the mode of action, prevention and treatment of colds with Echinacea are showing a new picture: those who took Echinacea as a prophylactic treatment had, during the cold season, more than 50% less risk of catching a cold compared to those who did not take Echinacea. Products with alcohol extracts of Echinacea have shown better results compared to juices.

Species:
 
Not all species of Echinacea are equally effective. A Cochrane review of the published studies has found that there is some evidence of benefit in the treatment (but not prevention) of the common cold by the aerial parts of Echinacea purpurea; other formulations of the plant did not show the same effect, and no formulation was effective for prevention.

Echinacea purpurea alkylamides in acting as a prophylactic against the cold virus, along with previous recent research supporting its effective use in supporting the immune system against cold virus symptoms
Several studies of the studies presented have used the freshly harvested Echinacea purpurea preparation
 
Mode of action of Echinacea deciphered:
Research has identified alkylamides as important active ingredients in Echinacea, as well as their mode of action in vitro and in vivo. The substances latch on to the immune cell's endocannabinoid receptors and thereby activate the immune system. The mixture used here, composed of 5% root and 95% stem, leaves and flowers, has proven to be efficacious in numerous comparative studies.
