Introduction:
Echinacea Purpurea (eastern purple coneflower or purple coneflower) is a species of flowering plant in the genus Echinacea of the family Asteraceae. Its cone-shaped flowering heads are usually, but not always, purple in the wild. It is native to eastern North America and presents to some extent in the wild in much of the eastern, southeastern, and midwest United States.
Echinacea is the most popular native American therapeutic herb. It is best known for boosting immune function. Echinacea Purpurea Extract works by helping white blood cells and lymphocytes protect the body against invading organisms. Unlike antibiotics, which are directly lethal to bacteria, echinacea makes immune cells more efficient in attacking bacteria, viruses, and abnormal cells. Unlike a shot that is active only against a specific problem, echinacea stimulates the overall activity of the cells responsible for fighting all kinds of infections.
