Its healing effects were used by ancient Native American cultures. The herbals contains the active substance echinacoside, which stimulates white blood cells, which have a major effect on our immunity.
Many healing effects in one plant
It works twice against bacteria and viruses - it contains the substance echinacoside, which can destroy a wide range of bacteria, viruses and fungi. Other substances in the coneflower activate white blood cells, which absorb sources of infection in the body and at the same time produce antibodies against them.
The purple coneflower is thus a great helper for strengthening immunity and increases resistance to infections of all kinds. You should touch the conifer or echinacea for flu, colds, colds or airway inflammation. Preparations from this plant will also help with inflammation of the joints and urinary tract. Her other ability - pain relief - is also suitable here.
Researchers confirmed that echinacea reduced the likelihood of having a cold by 58 percent, and also shortened the duration of the cold by 1.5 days. They concluded that echinacea is beneficial in reducing the incidence and duration of colds.
Echinacea significantly supports the activity of white blood cells. This helps to kill germs and increases the body's resistance to disease. Increasing immunity is extremely important in today's society, because the human body is very often weakened by chemical additives (mainly from food), bad air, stress and consumer lifestyle. It should therefore be used mainly as a prevention - for example, in the approaching flu season, until the disease has yet erupted.
Recommended daily intake
Echinacea is currently available in many forms and forms - tablets, capsules, powders, tinctures, drops, teas, etc. We can make a decoction of the herb easily at home. Pour 2 teaspoons of ground root over about 250 ml of boiling water and cook on a low flame for about 15 minutes. The recommended daily dose is 3 cups. It tastes sweet at first, but later it becomes bitter.
At home, we can also make a tincture, which we use 1 teaspoon once to 3 times a day, as needed. If you are taking a dietary supplement, always follow the dosage or consult your doctor or pharmacist. Echinacea is not recommended for use in children under two years of age. In older children and people over 65 years of age, it is recommended to start taking echinacea in lower doses and increase it as needed.
