Echinacea: misunderstood and underestimated


Echinacea is a popular but very underestimated herb due to misunderstanding of what constitutes "real" Echinacea.

  • Alkylamides are the only components found in the blood stream after oral ingestion of Echinacea.
  • Alkylamides are therefore used as markers of quality and activity of the herb.
  • The root of Echinacea is the preferred plant part because it has the highest level of alkylamides.
  • Echinacea angustifolia and Echinacea purpurea are the preferred species because they contain the highest amounts of alkylamides.
  • Echinacea must be extracted using a sufficiently high alcohol percentage to extract the alkylamides.
  • Echinacea modulates the immune response by the interaction of alkylamides with the CB2 receptors.
  • Echinacea boosts the white blood cell count, especially natural killer (NK) cells.

any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is beautiful value sufficient for
me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made
just right content as you did, the net might be much more useful than ever before.

Hi just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let
you know a few of the images aren't loading correctly.
I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I've tried
it in two different web browsers and both show the
same outcome.
