A native, North American herb, Echinacea was used by the native American Indians for more purposes than any other herb, and is today the most used herb for fighting infections, colds, flu, and a variety of other maladies.

An estimated 350 scientific studies have investigated echinacea's pharmacology and clinical uses with modern research showing that echinacea has many immune-stimulating effects. According to studies out of Europe, echinacea increases the number and activity of circulating immune system cells, as well as enhancing the body's production of immuno-active compounds such as interferon.
