Echinacea Premium Description

Suggested use: 3/day

Echinacea Premium combines the roots of the Echinacea angustifolia and Echinacea purpurea to enlist properties unique to each. The blending of these two plant species ensures that the specific caffeic acid and the lipophilic components are present in appropriate quantities. This product contains a total of 4.1 mg of alkylamides per tablet to ensure optimal strength and quality.

Why Echinacea is very important?

Native Americans used Echinacea to support the 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. Echinacea angustifolia and Echinacea purpurea are considered to be the most valuable and effective species. 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 alkylamides.

Research carried out by international groups strongly suggests that:

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

How Echinacea Premium keeps you healthy:

  • Echinacea 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 invade 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.
  • Also, Echinacea affects the spleen that contributes to a healthy immune system and a healthy body.
    Echinacea has also been traditionally used to support the lymphatic system. Lymph fluid usually often contains waste products, and is 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 process at the tissue level. Healthy tissues such as skin and lymph contribute to a healthy body.

So, Echinacea:

  • enhances immune system function
  • supports and promote normal interferon production
  • supports and promote healthy white blood cells
  • supports healthy immune response following stress, sudden changes in weather or temperature
  • encourages healthy upper respiratory tissue
  • supports and maintains healthy throat tissue
  • supports healthy lymphatic system function
  • stimulates the body's normal tissue support and renewal function
  • supports systemic inflammation in the whole body
