What is Swanson Echinacea?

Echinacea is a wild flower native to the USA and a common UK garden plant. Characterised by its daisy like purple blossoms, Echinacea has had a long history of traditional use from healing wounds and counteracting the toxins of snakebites by the Great Plains Indian tribes to today, where it is more recognised and widely acclaimed in fighting infections and boosting the immune system.

There are many species of Echinacea, but there are mainly three used in herbal preparations, Echinacea angustifolia, Echinacea pallida and Echinacea purpurea. The active ingredients can be found in the flowers, the stem and root of the Echinacea plant.

Swanson is a US manufacturer and supplier of dietary and herbal supplements. Swanson's products are rigorously tested for purity and potency, so you know you can trust them.

What is Swanson Echinacea used for?

Echinacea has become one of the world's top health supplements, thanks to its natural antibiotic and infection fighting qualities. Echinacea works to stimulate the immune system to respond to infection by boosting the cells production of an innate virus-fighting substance called interferon.

One of the main and most recognised uses of Echinacea supplements is in preventing and alleviating the symptoms of the common cold and flu. Echinacea can help to reduce the body's susceptibility to these common illnesses or reduce its systematic affects when taken at the first signs of infection. Studies suggest that Echinacea may reduce your likeliness to come down with a cold, but if you do, then symptoms may be less severe and your recovery is quicker.

Other benefits of Echinacea include:

  • Helps to fight thrush, recurrent respiratory, middle ear and urinary tract infections.
  • Autoimmune conditions such as lupus, multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis may respond to Echinacea.
  • Boosting the immune systems in people that may have a suppressed immune system through illness or disease.
  • As a topical cream Echinacea also promotes wound healing including eczema.

What is the recommended dose of Swanson Echinacea?

At the first signs of cold or flu, Swanson recommend that you take one capsule three times per day with water and food. It is not advised that you take for more than eight consecutive weeks. For health maintenance, you can take periodically for a few weeks at a time.
