Echinacea is a group of flowering plants used as a popular herbal remedy. They’re linked to many health benefits, such as reduced inflammation, improved immunity and lower blood sugar levels.
Echinacea is the name of a group of flowering plants related to the daisy that is native to North America and has been used for centuries in traditional medicine. Several species of the Echinacea plant are used to make medicine from its leaves, flower, and root. Echinacea was used in traditional herbal remedies by the Great Plains Indian tribes. Later, settlers followed the Indians' example and began using Echinacea for medicinal purposes as well.
Echinacea plants contain an impressive variety of active compounds, such as caffeic acid, alkamides, phenolic acids, rosmarinic acid, polyacetylenes, and many more. Some of these compounds may have antimicrobial and antiviral properties, while others may support the immune system in other ways.
Research shows that Echinacea may also increase the number of white blood cells, which fight infections. A review of more than a dozen studies, published in 2014, found the herbal remedy had a very slight benefit in preventing colds.
In summary, Echinacea may improve immunity, blood sugar, anxiety, inflammation, and skin health. It’s considered safe and well-tolerated for short-term use.
