Health claims accepted by the following organisations:

Germany’s Commission E recognises Echinacea as an adjunctive treatment for respiratory tract infections (colds, laryngitis, sinusitis etc.) and urinary tract infections, and as a topical treatment for chronic ulcers and superficial wounds that are healing poorly. These indications are, overall, also confirmed by the World Health Organization.

Description

Echinacea is traditionally used for its immunostimulant qualities.

This plant is used as a preventative or curative remedy for treating coughs, colds, flu and bronchitis.

It is an adaptogenic plant that enhances the organism’s resistance by stimulating the immune system.

Our complex of echinacea is cleverly proportioned to contain echinacosides and chicoric acid at the same time, providing maximum efficacy.


Detailed information

Echinacea is a Central North American plant whose flowers resemble slightly tousled marguerites (whence its name, echinos in Greek meaning hedgehog). Its roots were used by the American Indians (Sioux, Comanches) as an external application to treat wounds, insect stings and snake bites. They also used to chew it to combat toothache and sore throats.

There are several species in existence whose composition of active constituents varies slightly.

Today, numerous studies have confirmed its efficacy: it is used not only to treat, but also to cure, chills as well as bacterial or viral infections. It has proved to be particularly valuable in cases of coughs, colds, flu and bronchitis.

A comparative study was conducted on 559 healthy subjects: the 246 people who had caught colds during the 6-month study were treated for a week, one half with herbal extracts and echinacea roots, the other half with a placebo. The study showed that the people treated with echinacea recovered more quickly than those who were treated with a placebo! A Canadian study also showed that the severity of symptoms was 25% lower when the patients were treated with echinacea.

In conclusion, the association of Echinacea purpurea and Echinacea angustifolia apparently had a beneficial and fortifying effect against winter afflictions (flu, chills, colds etc.) by reducing the frequency and intensity of the symptoms.
