What is Echinacea Elite?
Trying to stay healthy? Echinacea can help. Clinical studies show that the active compounds in echinacea root, leaves, aerials and stems support different parts of your immune system, so your body mounts a robust response to challenges. But which species and even which part of the plant your echinacea supplement is made from matters: these capsules contain echinacea extracts from the whole plant of both Echinacea purpurea and Echinacea angustifolia: the two most studied echinacea species for immune support.
Rev up your natural defenses with whole plant extracts of two echinacea species famous for their immune system support.
Echinacea Elite Benefits
- Summons a robust immune system response
- Used for immune support for generations, with recent clinical studies demonstrating efficacy
- Uses standardized, whole plant extracts of Echinacea purpurea & Echinacea angustifolia to maximize effectiveness
Multi-faceted immune defense
Echinacea has a well-deserved reputation for helping you stay healthy. But how does this family of herbs do it? The answer lies in the active compounds found within the plant. For instance, phenolic compounds and echinacoside encourage different kinds of immune system activity: natural killer cells (or NK cells for short) as well as monocytes and macrophages – all key players in a robust immune defense. Echinacea actives also help inhibit inflammatory cytokines to support a healthy and unimpeded immune response.
Echinacea has been used to support the immune health for centuries. But there’s more than one kind of echinacea – and the various compounds that help your body protect itself are found in different parts of the plant. The solution: make an echinacea supplement from the two most efficacious echinacea species: Echinacea purpurea and Echinacea angustifolia – and use standardized, whole-plant extracts.
Echinacea and immune health studies
The active compounds in echinacea, including echinacosides, alkamides, and phenolic compounds encourage an active, healthy immune response in a variety of ways: pre-clinical studies indicate that echinacea encourages natural killer cell activity. NK cells are your body’s first, immediate response to previously unknown immune challenges. This makes them an invaluable part of both seasonal and year-round preparedness.
Both species of echinacea (E. purpurea and E. angustifolia) have been shown to also help lessen the duration and severity of immune challenges. Clinical studies also indicate that supplementing with echinacea may give you a better chance of staying healthy all season long, as well.
Echinacea and promoting a healthy inflammatory response
Cytokines are a family of chemical compounds released by immune cells. Echinacea compounds can help inhibit these cytokines, which supports a healthy immune response. And the better your immune system is working, the easier it will be to stay healthy.
