Echinacea has been used for centuries as an immune system stimulant. Its most common use today is for preventing colds and sore throats, or speeding recovery from these infections. Scientific research with echinacea confirms that it has a profound effect on the immune system and can therefore help prevent the establishment and spread of infections. The echinacea actives can help the body to increase levels of white blood cells, as well as interferon, interleukins, tumor necrosis factor, antibody activity, and natural killer cell activity. In particular, colds and flu have responded well to echinacea. Echinacea purpurea's effecton the immune system is due to the synergistic action of polysaccharides, alkylamides and cichoric acid, key actives in this species.
