Unveiling the Immune-Boosting Power of Echinacea

18th century German botanist, Conrad Moench, named echinacea after the Greek word echinos, meaning hedgehog due to its spiky, round seedhead. Echinacea is a beautiful, daisy-like purple flower, but note, it is also a potent herbal ally.  Research summarized by Mount Sinai Hospital suggests that echinacea may enhance immune function, thereby helping the body fight off infections more effectively. The same research indicates that echinacea could lessen the intensity and length of cold symptoms by up to 58% when taken at the start of a cold, and could potentially shorten cold duration by 1 to 4 days, highlighting its role in promoting wellness.

Beyond its role in immune support, echinacea has been studied for its potential benefits in promoting respiratory health ally. Research from Complementary Therapies in Medicine suggests that echinacea may help prevent incidences of upper respiratory infection up to 22%, offering a natural approach in supplementing respiratory wellness. Working in tandem with other healing efforts, such as staying hydrated and resting, The Cleveland Clinic’s research suggests that consuming echinacea may increase the body’s white blood cell count.
