Echinacea angustifolia, Narrow-leaf coneflower.
Traditional uses of Echinacea angustifolia:
Echinacea angustifolia supports the work of the immune system by increasing the activity of cells of the immune system, thus demonstrating antibacterial, antifungal action, including Candida and antiviral fungi, and protects the body against recurrence of the disease. Furthermore, it inhibits the activity of hyaluronidase, which results in protection against degradation of intercellular connections, cell membranes and proteoglycans and collagen, thus preventing the penetration of tissues by pathogenic microorganisms. It stimulates phagocytosis processes, increases the number and activity of T and NK lymphocytes, and increases the secretion of interferon. In addition, Echinacea angustifolia has analgesic and diastolic effects and stimulates regenerative processes. Buhner also recommends the use of Echinacea angustifolia in its collagen enhancement protocol.
Echinacea angustifolia cannot be used by pregnant women and during lactation.
It should not be given concurrently with immunosuppressants, including glucocorticosteroids. Echinacea preparations should not be taken by persons suffering from autoimmune diseases or in the course of which immunological autoimmunity processes occur. Do not give the preparation to people suffering from leukemia and AIDS.
