Organic Echinacea is a dietary supplement formulated to support the immune system and promote antioxidant activity. Organic Echinacea is available in veggie capsules from Natura-Genics®.
Echinacea is a group of flowering plants that have been used for centuries by Native Americans. Only three of the nine species of echinacea are used for herbal supplements. Some of the active compounds found in echinacea are caffeic acid, alkamides, phenolic acids, rosmarinic acid, and polyacetylenes.
Benefits of Echinacea
It is believed that echinacea not only promotes a stronger immune response against infections but may also support and help the body during infection. Echinacea appears to promote shortened duration and severity of colds and other upper respiratory infections. This may be due to its antimicrobial and antiviral properties. Research has shown that echinacea appears to increase the number of white blood cells in the body. White blood cells are responsible for helping fight off infection.
Antioxidants are molecules that help protect cells in the body from oxidative stress caused by free radicals. Echinacea contains antioxidants including flavonoids, cichoric acid, and rasmarinic acid. Additionally, echinacea contains alkamides, which can renew worn-out antioxidants and help them reach molecules more effectively.
