Echinacea belongs to the Asteraceae family. Its chemical agents are: polysaccharides, glycoproteins, flavonoids, caffeic acid derivatives (cichoric acids and echinacoside), dienes, alkylamides, and an essential oil. Experimental works in vitro and in vivo, and also controlled clinical trials, have shown the following pharmaceutical charcteristics of Echinacea:
•It increases immune defences during cold and flu, by increasing macrophage activity
•It increases the production of Interferon type I (Alpha), type II (Beta) and cytokines (IL-1, IL-6 and in particular IL-10).
•It stimulates phagocytosis and increases leukocyte chemotaxis
•It performs an antinflammatory effect, and in parti- cular it inhibits bacterial hyaluronidase
•Anti-viral activity (herpes and flu) was also proven experimentally
•Anti-bacterial activity (essential oil)
SUGGESTED USE: 3-6 tablets a day, according to your needs.
