Benefits for health

Echinacea has a broad range of benefits. Let's see how it can help you:

  • For your immune system: Studies have found that Echinacea reduces the risk of catching a common cold by more than 50%, and reduce the duration of the common cold by 1.5 days. The most significant results of Echinacea for the immune system are its effects for people suffering from recurring infections. Regular consumption of Echinacea help reducing the frequency of the infections.
  • Echinacea also has potent anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce pain. It can help your body to cope with stress, toxins and sleep problems, which all contribute to inflammation. It is a potent painkiller, notably useful for digestive pains (stomach, in the bowels), headaches, measles, herpes and gonorrhea. It might even alleviate symptoms of eye inflammation (although consulting a doctor seems really more appropriated in this case). Taking a supplement of Echinacea is a good idea for people suffering from chronic inflammatory conditions like rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Echinacea has mild laxative properties. It is less strong than aloe vera, so if you suffer from constipation, it might be better to try Echinacea first, to provide constipation relief.

How to use it?

Take 1 to 3 capsules per day, preferably during meals.

Safety / contraindications

  • People with, diabetes, leukemia, tuberculosis or liver disorders should not take Echinacea.
  • Minor side effects can include stomach upset, nausea, dizziness, and dry eyes.

Pregnancy use

Echinacea can be used safely during pregnancy, according to studies. It can help if you catch a cold.
