Phytexcell™ Echinacea

Add to favourites
Echinacea is a beautiful, perennial plant found in central parts of the US and in Europe. Historically, Echinacea has been the most widely used medicinal plant by the Native Americans of the Great Plains, and it is still used in traditional medicine today. The freshly ground roots were used to quickly heal wounds, snake bites or insect stings. Introduced into Europe at the end of the 19th century, it is recognized in the treatment of certain infectious diseases. Medicines made using Echinacea species have been shown to have antiviral effects and to stimulate production of white blood-cells; they are marketed as products to relieve symptoms of colds and to aid wound-healing. Used externally, this plant heals scar tissue, is an anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and is qualified as an immuno-stimulant by its action on the phagocytic system. These activities are provided by a variety of chemical substances including polysaccharides and phenolic derivatives.
