For Extra Immune Boosting!
Echinacea has a rich tradition with North American Plains Indians who used it more than any other plant to help maintain their health in winter-time.
Hundreds of scientific studies have now shown that it supports and may enhance immune function. Our Echinacea Supreme contains the most highly prized forms of Echinacea: Echinacea Purpurea and Echinacea Angustifolia.
In recent years, research has discovered a mechanism by which Echinacea may help. One of the primary defense mechanisms of the body is made of a jelly-like substance called Hyaluronic Acid (HA). HA occurs in the tissues between cells to “cement” them together. There is an enzyme, hyaluronidase, which attacks HA in a way not fully understood. When it does, the HA quickly loses its jelly-like viscosity, and this protective “cement” loses its effectiveness. If the enzyme is allowed to destroy the integrity of the HA barrier, immune function may suffer. Echinacea has been shown to prevent the enzyme from dissolving HA.
It also contains Goldenseal and grape seed extract for enhanced immune benefits. 60 tablets
