Echinacea is a broad-spectrum immune system stimulant. It is used to protect against common colds, flu and sore throat. Being a natural antibiotic, Echinacea is used to treat infections, to combat low resistance to sickness and to enhance the immune system. Echinacea is also used to treat chronic recurring vaginal yeast infections. It has been traditionally used to help acne, boils and difficult skin conditions.
Echinacea stimulates the immune system very well. Large sugar molecules called polysaccharides are the primary constituent responsible for its activity. Two of them – insulin and arabinogalactin – have been identified as beneficial. These polysaccharides activate the immune system in many ways. Echinacea helps to increase production of T cells, levels of circulating neutrophils, to improve leukocyte phagocytosis, to assist antibody binding and natural killer of cell activity. Echinacea also has direct antibacterial properties. In common, Echinacea herb deserves its place in our medicine cabinet.
