Echinacea benefits

Medicinal Properties:

As dozens of scientific studies have established, echinacea is a very potent immune system stimulant, a decent fighter of inflammation and viruses, and a mild antisep tic. It muscles up the body's natural defenses in a variety of ways. One phytochemical, inulin, improves the white blood cells' ability to speed to and tackle infections (whether viral, fungal, or bacterial), in part by increasing the level of a substance called properdin.

The plant also increases the number of white blood cells in your immune system arsenal and activates them. Caffeic acid, cichoric acid, and echinacin kill viruses much like the body's own bug killer, interferon. The herb also signals the body to release interferon. The overall impact is a great counterattack to everything from colds and flu to yeast and respiratory infections, perhaps even to cancer and HIV.
