Nature's Immune Booster
Highly valued for thousands of years by the Plains Indians of North America, echinacea is now one of the best-selling herbs in Australia. Many people now use echinacea as their primary therapy for colds, the flu, infections and for its general immune-boosting effects. Echinacea stimulates the overall activity of cells responsible for fighting infection. Unlike antibiotics, which act to directly kill bacteria, echinacea makes the cells of the immune system more efficient in attacking bacteria and viruses, supporting the body in the fight against diesease.
