Echinacea, also known as echinacea, is one of the most commonly used herbal remedies for immune health in Europe and the United States. Traditionally, it dates back to Native American times. With the increase of research, the effect of Echinacea has been confirmed by more studies. For example, a growing body of research suggests that echinacea can help prevent and treat upper respiratory infections caused by cold and the flu.
According to a meta-analysis published in the Lancet Infectious Diseases in 2007, echinacea can reduce the risk of the common cold by 60%; The University of Connecticut in the US analysed the results of 14 studies. One study found that echinacea in combination with vitamin C reduced the incidence of cold symptoms by 86 percent and by 65 percent alone. A large study published in 2012 showed that echinacea can reduce the duration of the common cold by 26 percent and reduce the number of outbreaks by 60 percent. The study was a gold standard randomized, double-blind, parallel-controlled study involving 755 patients.
