Echinacea Premium



Native Americans used Echinacea angustifolia root and Echinacea purpurea root to support that immune system and as a tonic. Echinacea is one of the most popular herbs in the United States but the quality of available products is quite variable. Even the species of Echinacea used is very important to product quality and the effect on the body. Echinacea angustifolia  and Echinacea purpurea are considered to be the most valuable and effective species. Scientific and medical studies have shed new light on this well-regarded herb.

It assists the body’s immune response. Top quality Echinacea root assists the body’s immune response in a number of ways. One of the most important is the nonspecific immune response, particularly white blood cells helping with phagocytosis. Phagocytosis is a process involving certain white blood cells that engulf and digest foreign particles or cells that might challenge the body. (The response is nonspecific because the body launches this broad attack against particles of all kinds. It is not specific to just one particle.) A practical effect is that top quality Echinacea root helps the immune response following stress or sudden changes in weather.

Why use top quality Exhinacea root?

In the late 19th Century, natural clinicians in the United States noted that “when chewed the root, if of good quality, imparts a persistent tingling sensation”. We now know that this tingling sensation is caused by the presence of the plant constituents called alklamides (pronouced al-kyl-a-mydes). Research conducted by international groups strongly suggests that:

  • These alkylamides are very important for the immune system effects of Exhinacea
  • They are absorbed into the bloodstream
  • The two different types of alkylamides in each Echinacea species are important

Constituents interact with immune receptor

Top quality Echinacea root helps the body’s normal immune function because these tingling plant constituents (alkamides) are able to interact with certain receptors. These receptors are found mainly in immune tissues outside the central nervous system such as the spleen. The alkylamides switch the tissues on when they combine with the receptor. This results in a healthy response in these immune tissues. Healthy immune tissues such as in the spleen contribute to healthy immune function and a healthy body.

Provides support to other body systems

Herbs often assist the body in more than one way, and Echinacea is no exception. Echinacea has also been traditionally used to support the lymphatic system, perhaps by exerting a normal stimulation of lymph circulation. Lymph fluid usually often contains waste products, and in filtered by the spleen and lymph nodes. The lymphatic system works closely with the immune system. Echinacea was also used by natural clinicians to help the body in the cleansing and renewal processes at the tissue level. Healthy tissues such as skin and lymph contribute to a healthy body.
