Echinacea has Extra Powers
Perhaps a strange recommendation from a herbal practitioner but antibiotics are a modern fact of life and Echinacea can help their effectiveness. Clinical research shows us that Echinacea can work with antibiotics to speed recovery from infection. Apparently, it is the ‘arabinogalactan’ in Echinacea that goes a long way to achieve this. In other words not just its famous two compounds of polysaccharides and alkylamides. Herbs can and do frequently replace antibiotics but where they can’t they work ‘synergistically’ to enhance the work of the antibiotic. Echinacea is anti-inflammatory and has antimicrobial capabilities alongside ‘building up’ the immune system. If you have begun to use other herbs but find they are not enough then the addition of an antibiotic can in some cases become sadly necessary but studies reveal that the antibiotic will work more swiftly and conclusively as opposed to an antibiotic on its own.
