Product Description Herbalists Comments Supplement Facts and Ingredients
 
This organic blend of the two most popular Echinacea species (Echinacea purpurea and Echinacea angustifolia) is carefully grown on our certified organic farm. The herbs are harvested when they are most potent, and processed immediately to retain their beneficial constituents.

Echinacea was used by many Native American populations throughout the United States. This widespread use was adopted by the Eclectic physicians in the U.S. and its use was documented in medical texts until 1947. A German pharmaceutical manufacturer imported Echinacea purpurea to Germany in the 1930's, and since then, German and American scientists have been researching the clinical usefulness of the herb with an emphasis on supporting the immune system. This herb is popular both in Europe and in the US.

Since the era of the Eclectics, herbalists have known that all good quality Echinacea products cause a mild tingling sensation in the mouth. This is due to the alkylamides, which are recognized for their biological effect on the immune system.

As a result of many clinical trials that were done in the 1990's, Echinacea sales account for approximately 10% of the dietary supplement market. Many clinical trials are still being conducted today.
