The Immune-Boosting Benefits Of Echinacea

Dr. Meredith Warner’s Herbal Immunity Defense supplement has been formulated to give your immune system its best shot at fighting off invaders and promoting optimal wellness by restoring your body’s natural immune function. 

One of the main ingredients is Echinacea purpurea (Purple coneflower), a natural inflammation-reducer found in the North American flowering plant with active compounds that include polysaccharides, polyacetylenes, flavonoids, alkamides, caffeic acid derivatives, and cichoric acid.

Why Dr. Warner Chooses Echinacea

For centuries Echinacea has been used to treat the common cold, cough, bronchitis, upper respiratory infections, and inflammation. 

Studies have begun to show that it effectively reduces the symptoms’ severity and duration by boosting one’s immune function. Studies are ongoing, and dosing in different studies seems to change results. More work is to come from the scientific community.

Immune Support

Numerous studies have shown that Echinacea benefits the immune system by supporting white blood cells and natural killer (NK) cells during their everyday activity. This helps your body’s white blood cells attack foreign bacteria and viruses. Natural killer cells are the first line of defense in your body. The first line of defense (after the barriers like skin and mucous membranes) is called the ‘innate’ immune system. It is crucial to have a robust innate immune system.

These white blood cells are an integral part of your immune system’s ability to function. The white blood cells are made in your bone marrow and flow through your body’s bloodstream, looking for viruses, bacteria, and other foreign invaders. The first line of defense is also on the lookout for injured and damaged tissue to remove and tumor tissue. Throughout time, humans have used plants and herbs to support immunity; we should be no different. Echinacea has historically been used to prevent influenza and the common cold.

A study done in 2007 found that “Echinacea was also found to decrease the duration of a cold by 1 to 4 days.”
