Echinacea
It is one of the most popular herbs in the world. For years, we believe that effectively fights infection and helps the immune system. However, due to recent studies, it might be asked: when Echinacea strengthens the immune system, and when you feel good?
For some of us, autumn and winter season might as well be called infectious and flu. And when regular monthly catch a viral infection, desperately looking for a way to strengthen immunity and reduce the risk of disease. Of course, the best, and effectively, and naturally. As a way to prevent colds echinacea just praises. But what do we really know how it works?
Natural drug
Echinacea is a plant in North America, where for centuries used as an antidote to snake bites and as a treatment for chronic wounds. Her European career began over a hundred years ago. Initially, it was dried and prepared home remedies and used as a reinforcing agent. Today, the pharmaceutical market, are especially popular syrups, drops and tablets based on its statement, but it also prepares infusions, juices, tinctures, ointments and gels.
Applied externally help frostbite, burns, varicose veins, pressure ulcers, relieve skin inflammation in psoriasis. However, internally - are profiled as a means to enhance immunity, help in treating recurrent infections, influenza, inflammation of the airways. Furthermore, can be used in gastrointestinal disorders, nervous and cardiovascular. Not only that. Preparations of Echinacea is also used in cosmetics. Supposed to prevent the degeneration of collagen and soften the skin, prevents wrinkles. With antimicrobial properties, bringing relief to oily skin prone to breakouts and acne.
Protect the body
The secret lies in the effectiveness of echinacea beneficial ingredients. Are especially important polysaccharides, which stimulate the immune system, which contributes to the increasing resistance. Activated macrophages and leukocytes that secrete antiviral substances. Echinacea preparations therefore ordered adjunctive treatment for the common cold - even when accompanied by pain, runny nose and fever - both children and adults. But (a voice) emphasizes that the best results are achieved by using it prophylactically.
At the same time, both supporters and skeptics coneflower, they say, to remember the principles of receiving treatment, which may include the adverse interactions with other drugs, particularly immunosuppressants. It should not be used in pregnant women and nursing women, children to 7 the age of the person after the transplant, as well as suffering from such liver disease, multiple sclerosis, tuberculosis, HIV and leukemia.
Scientists believe the healing properties of echinacea, but do not make weapons. These divergent results explain the different research methodologies and different dosage formulations. Thus, a low dose for a few days would stimulate the immune system, while inadequate (more) cause the opposite effect - inhibit the immune mechanism. .
For a long time we know that the power of suggestion and belief in the beneficial effects of taking preparations, can work wonders. I guess you could argue that we are prone to it the more, the less we care about the health steadily, and the more we want to direct toward accepting only natural preparations.
However, remember that the drugs - whether natural (herbal) or synthetic - it's always drugs. Improper use can not only show no positive action, but also harmful. It is important because the dosage, duration of treatment, interactions with other substances.
