Did you know that Echinacea (when used correctly) is the closest thing to a cure for the common cold? Echinacea stimulates the overall activity of the cells responsible for fighting all kind of infection. Unlike antibiotics, which directly attack bacteria, Echinacea makes our own immune cells more efficient at attacking bacteria, viruses, and abnormal cells (including cancer cells). It increases the number and activity of immune system cells including anti-tumor cells, promotes T-cell activation, stimulates new tissue growth for wound healing and reduces inflammation in arthritis and inflammatory skin conditions. Nature made a pretty little flower that has all this power!
