What is Echinacea and how does it work
Echinacea originated in America, and has been traditionally used by Native Americans for hundreds of years for infections. Echinacea boosts the production of immune system cells (especially macrophages, which destroy bacterial, fungal, and viral microorganisms), and so assists in reducing infectious conditions and symptoms.
What is the difference between the species of Echinacea, and the root and the leaf forms
There are several different kinds of Echinacea, but the most popular are Echinacea purpurea (E. purpurea) and Echinacea angustifolia (E. angustifolia). Both the root & leaf tops of Echinacea plants have been used in traditional medicine however research suggests that the root contains the most potent immune support. When combined, the roots of these two Echinacea species provide a broader range of special immune-beneficial active ingredients compared with a single Echinacea formula. This makes the combination more effective for strengthening the body’s natural defences.
What dose of Echinacea Advanced Immune can I take during an infection
At the onset or during an acute infection, adults can take 1 tablet up to 3 times daily for the duration of the illness. When symptoms improve then they may return to a maintenance dose of 1 – 2 tablets daily.
When is the best time to take Echinacea
Most herbalists and researchers agree that Echinacea is most effective when taken at maximum dose right at the onset of an infection. This dose should be maintained until the infection is gone; after which, the maintenance dose can commence.
Can I take Echinacea Advanced Immune as a preventative measure to help protect against illness
Yes. There are many instances when Echinacea can be taken as prevention to help strengthen the body’s natural defences. Examples include throughout the winter months, prior to and during overseas travel, during chronic stress or times of low immunity, and during recurrent or chronic infections.
Can Echinacea be taken year round
At a low dose, Echinacea can be taken year round if the immune system is weak or if there are chronic infections, especially of the skin or mucous membranes. Generally, however, it is advised to stop Echinacea at the end of the winter season or when it is no longer required.
What benefits do Zinc, Pro-Vitamin A & Selenium have for immunity
Echinacea Advanced Immune gives you the added benefit of powerful antioxidants such as Zinc, Vitamin C and Selenium, each of which are also essential for healthy immune system function and response. Vitamin C helps to enhance antibody response, while Zinc is important for white blood cell function. Selenium is a powerful antioxidant and is needed for general wellness, while Betacarotene (Pro-Vitamin A) helps support healthy membranes, which are the body’s first line of defence.
