Without a doubt, the most frequent use of echinacea, and for which it is best known, is to reduce the symptoms of the common cold. This is due to the two main properties of this plant, that is, its ability to strengthen and enhance the immune system - it is a natural antibiotic capable of activating our leukocyte production - and as an anti-inflammatory.


Echinacea has been shown to help reduce fever, mucus and cough associated not only with the cold but also with other diseases of the respiratory system, thereby facilitating and accelerating the recovery process, and although to a certain extent it contributes to its prevention, Medical studies do not definitively confirm that by taking it in advance we can avoid these pathologies, although we can minimize their effects.
