If you have been unsuccessful with the prevention of viral illnesses such as the flu and common cold, you could use a cup of echinacea tea to speed up the healing process. Proven to be able to decrease the length of time of viral symptoms, echinacea also lowers complication risks associated with these illnesses and kills off free radicals.
Echinacea is one of the most popular herbs today and should be essential during cold and flu season! Echinacea stimulates the cells responsible for fighting all kinds of infection. Once known as an alternative way to prevent the common cold, now Echinacea is becoming more popular with other benefits. One of its main uses is to support healthy immune function. Studies show, that unlike antibiotics where antibiotics attack bacteria, Echinacea purpurea boosts our own immune system more efficient at attacking these bacteria and viruses. People with allergies to other members of the Asteraceae/daisy family should be cautious with Echinacea due to the presence of Echinacea pollen.
