About

Echinacea is one of the most wonderful plants that came to Europe from the North American continent. It has tremendous healing power, is used in traditional medicine and pharmacology. The homeland of Echinacea purpurea is Atlantic North America, the United States and Mexico. Echinacea can be a useful adjuvant in the treatment of cancer and chronic fatigue syndrome. Echinacea is effective in conditions of mental depression, physical and nervous exhaustion, has a stimulating effect on the lymphatic system.

Chemical composition

All the plant parts contain:

  • hydroxycinnamic acids (chicory, ferulic, coumaric, caffeic);
  • polysaccharides (heteroxylans and arabinosymalactanes);
  • essential oil (flowers – up to 0.5%, grass – up to 0.35%, roots – from 0.05 to 0.25%).

The main component of the essential oil is acyclic sesquiterpenoids in roots, there are found:

  • betaine (0.1%);
  • resin (about 2%);
  • fatty acids (palmitic, linoleic, cerotinic);
  • and phytosterols.

Health impact

  • The stimulating effect of echinacea on the immune system, contributing to the increase in the activity of nonspecific defense factors of the body and cellular immunity.
  • It stimulates bone marrow hematopoiesis, as a result of which the number of leukocytes and cells of the reticulo-endothelial system of the spleen increases, stimulates the phagocytic activity of macrophages.
  • It increases non-specific reactivity of the body. This action is manifested not only in adults, but also in children with unsteady immune system, as well as in elderly people, in whom the functions of this system are reduced due to the general aging of the body.
