What is Echinacea?

Echinacea is an all-natural herbal ingredient that is actually derived from Echinacea flowers, which grow naturally in the wild in Canada and in certain parts of the US. This floral ingredient has actually been used for medicinal purposes for several hundred years, and it’s easy to understand why when you truly get an idea of just how powerful its healing properties are. Echinacea flowers can vary in species as there are nine separate species currently flowering in the wild, and although very similar in terms of healing properties, in appearance, many of them do differ from one another. No part of the Echinacea plant goes to waste when it comes to health properties, as the roots, leaves, stems, and flower petals themselves, are all used to make various health supplements and products. The most potent and commonly used form of the Echinacea plant however, is the Echinacea Purpurea, which gets its name as it has slightly purple petals on the flower itself.

How does it work?

Echinacea is primarily used to help relieve the symptoms common colds and strains of the flu, but it can also provide many other general health and well-being benefits simultaneously. Experts have found that Echinacea contains compounds which have been proven to help alleviate congestion in the nasal passageway, thereby enhancing a person’s ability to breathe clearly when affected by a cold or a similar condition causing congestion. Many of the effects caused by Echinacea are very similar to a natural anti-histamine, making it a great supplement to take during allergy-season. 

What are the benefits of using Echinacea Supplements?

Some of the primary benefits associated with Echinacea supplements include the following:

Protection from colds and flu

One of the main benefits provided via Echinacea is that it provides a great deal of protection from cold and flu viruses. Whilst in younger people, colds and flu viruses are just unpleasant, in older people, and in people with weak immune systems, they can potentially be more severe.

Improved immunity

Another great benefit of Echinacea is the fact that it has been proven to improve a person’s immune system. Echinacea helps to promote the production of new white blood cells, which the body uses to help fight off illness and infection. The more white blood cells that a person has, the stronger their immune system will become.

    How and when should it be consumed?

    Health Canada Recommended Dose (capsules):Adults: 1 Capsule(s) 1 - 2 time(s) per day. Take at the first sign of infection.

    What can it be stacked with?

    Echinacea is a supplement designed to promote health and wellness, so it can be stacked with supplements that are also designed to provide the same benefits. Ideally you may wish to stack it with vitamin C supplements with added zinc, omega 3 fatty acid supplements, glucosamine, and multi-vitamin supplements.

    5/5, I have been using and trying supplements from the company for 4 years now and Echinacea continues to be a must buy just about every other or every few months to help keep my immune system in tip top condition. Not to claim that it's all magical but I've been sick for 2 days of the past 4 years and can for sure say that this product has aided in that!
