Details

Relieves acute cold & flu symptoms.

Echinacea, particularly the echinacosides and caffeic acid derivatives, might protect collagen structures against degradation (oxidation) caused by free radicals. This antioxidant effect is also useful to relieve the inflammation generated by the immune system during its fight against the viruses of colds.
Action
- Immune system stimulant.
- Effective against respiratory infections, especially if taken as soon as the first symptoms appear.
Caution
Contraindication: known allergy to one of the ingredients or to any flower belonging to the daisy (asteracea) family.

A few cases of prolonged bleeding time were reported. It is therefore not recommended to combine echinacea with anticoagulant medications like Coumadin®.

Because Echinacea is an immune stimulant, its combination with immuno-suppressive medications like Methotrexate® or Immuran® is contraindicated. Echinacea is also not recommended for people suffering from leukemia or other auto-immune diseases.

A study conducted in Toronto by the Motherisk Program states that Echinacea is safe during pregnancy. (11) However, it is always best to consult a competent health professional.
