Dr. Christopher's Echinacea Angustifolia Root Extract 2 oz.
ITEM CODE #649827
Description: In folk medicine, Echinacea Angustifolia Root is well known for its anti-infective and antibacterial properties. This natural extract is recommended as a preventive means for colds and various infections as well as the improvement of the immune system and overall well-being.
Being a rich source of vitamin C, Echinacea has been used for centuries as a means for strengthening the immunity. North American Indians valued the plant for its powerful healing properties: Echinacea was used for eye inflammations, festering wounds, skin inflammations, fever, pain, sore throat, and cough. Some tribes used the plant as an analgesic. Echinacea Angustifolia has been used in the treatment of dental, stomach, and intestinal pains and sore throat. Echinacea tea was used to treat rheumatism, arthritis, mumps, and measles. Diluted Echinacea juice was applied to burned or damaged skin. Echinacea was also considered a strong antidote for snake bites and poisonous insects.
The mechanism of action of Echinacea is determined by the content of such substances as betaine, copper, echinacin, echinol, echinacoside, inulin, iron, pentadecadien, polyacetylene compounds, vitamins A, C, E, and B. Echinacea activates cellular immunity, exerts anti-inflammatory and immunostimulatory effects, and increases the specific resistance of the body.
In modern medicine, Echinacea is valued for its strong immunostimulatory and pronounced anti-inflammatory properties as well as the ability to mobilize the body’s natural defenses, which help to fight infectious and viral diseases. Echinacea is known to inhibit the growth of staphylococcus, streptococcus, E. coli, influenza viruses, and herpes viruses. Therefore, it is used as a prophylactic remedy at the first sign of colds and influenza during the epidemic. The Echinacea extract has an established efficacy in such inflammatory diseases as arthritis, rheumatism, gynecological diseases, prostatitis, etc.

The extract is used in people with weakened immune protection during or after chronic inflammatory diseases, exposure to ionizing radiation or chemotherapeutic agents, prolonged use of antibiotics, or exposure of the body to toxic substances.
