About Echinacea

also known as American Cone Flower, Black Sampson, Black Susans.

 

Components of Echinacea

Echinacea benefits our health and well-being like few plants on the planet. Echinacea has a complex mix of active substances, some of which are said to be antimicrobial, while others are believed to have an effect on the human immune system.  All species of this herbal remedy have compounds called phenols. Many plants contain phenols, active substances that control the activity of a range of enzymes and cell receptors, and protect the plant from infections and ultraviolet radiation damage. Phenols have antioxidant properties, which are good for human health. Echinacea also contains alkylamides or alkamides, which have an effect on the immune system, as well as polysaccharides, glycoproteins, and caffeic acid derivatives.

 

Health benefits of Echinacea. 

Combats Cancer:  Fascinating research about Echinacea benefits regarding brain cancer has been published by the National Institutes of Health. The use of Echinacea as another natural cancer treatment is now being recommended, literally, “alongside — or indeed in place of — conventional therapy.”

Boosts the Immune System
Published in the journal Lancet Infectious Diseases, the University of Connecticut performed a meta-analysis study that evaluated 14 studies and determined that: Echinacea cuts the chances of catching a common cold by 58 percent.
Echinacea reduces the duration of the common cold by almost one-and-a-half days.
In addition, the medical journal Hindawi has published material suggesting that echinacea stops viral colds. However, the most significant results of echinacea benefits with regards to the immune system were the effects when used on recurring infections. To date, research shows that Echinacea probably reduces cold symptoms, but it seems its effects are more powerful once cold symptoms start. 

Alleviates Pain
Echinacea’s history began when echinacea purpurea was used by the Great Plains Indians as a painkiller. It’s especially effective for the following types of pain: Pain in the bowels. Pain associated with headaches. Pain associated with measles. Snake bites, sore throats, stomach ache, tonsillitis and toothache.

Functions as a Laxative
Like many herbs, echinacea is particularly healing for the stomach and entire gastrointestinal tract. According to Medical Herbalism, for example, echinacea can be used as a mild laxative to provide natural constipation relief and as a calming agent. 

Sinus
Echinacea is one of the most effective herbal remedies available. Not only do the extracts from this pretty purple coneflower treat common cold symptoms but prevent these infections after exposure as well.Echinacea functions mainly by boosting immune cell performance, but the herb also has direct antimicrobial activity.Echinacea also suppresses hyaluronidase, an enzyme produced by bacteria to enable it to penetrate the protective mucous membranes of the body making this herb useful in treating sinusitis.

Thyroid
This is one of the best known herbs when it comes to the herbs that help the thyroid. It can boost the immune system. It is especially beneficial in case of the patients with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and Grave’s Disease. You might think of this herb as only for improving the immune system, but it is often recommended for those who suffer from hyperthyroidism.

History of Echinacea

Native Americans used echinacea for hundreds of years before the arrival of European explorers, settlers, and colonizers. The North American Plains Indians used Echinacea angustifolia extensively for general medical purposes. It is endemic to eastern and central North America and thrives in moist to dry prairies and open woodlands. By the early 1800s echinacea became a popular herbal remedy for those who had settled in the United States, and soon became commonly used in Europe as well. It became much more popular after research on it was carried out in Germany in the 1920s. In the mid-19th and early 20th centuries, echinacea was used for treating anthrax infections, snakebites, and also as a pain reliever. In the late 1920s and early 1930s, echinacea became hugely popular in Europe and North America as a herbal medication.
