Golden Seal + Echinacea Herbal Extract For Flu and Colds

Goldenseal + Echinacea - nature's antibiotic stops infections, colds, flu, fever, sore throats, bronchitis, sinusitis.

It's that time of year again. You can't sleep, your body aches, you're sneezing, coughing, having a runny nose, maybe some chills and a sore throat. It may just be a nasty cold or the flu, or an even nastier respiratory infection.

Bronchitis, sinusitis and pneumonia are three common respiratory tract infections (RTIs) that make millions of people misearable during cold and flu season. According to a national tracking system, RTIs are expected to hit the United States earlier and faster this season.

Goldenseal root is well known as nature's antibiotic, stopping infection and poisons in the body. It is very helpful in reducing swelling and stopping internal bleeding, while healing mucus membrane, catarrhal conditions anywhere in the body and at the same time will tone and sustain venous circulation.

When echinacea is added to the goldenseal, we have a most potent and effective formula for flu, fevers, colds, sore throat and infections. Goldenseal is even more effective. However, Echinacea leads in other ways such as benefiting and helping the immune system, has cortisone like effects, helps the lymph system to carry waste away from infection, and has some anti-inflammatory effects.

Use of Echinacea before the onset of full-blown symptoms of the common cold reduces the incidence by more than a half and the duration by almost two full days, researchers reported here at the 2006 annual meeting of the American College of Clinical Pharmacology.

Researchers found 14 studies that contained information on incidence in 1,356 patients and duration in 1,630 patients. They found that Echinacea use cut incidence by 58 percent. Duration was shortened by 1.9 days compared with the colds of nonusers.

The Plains Indians used various species of echinacea to treat poisonous insect and snake bites, toothaches, sore throat, wounds, as well as mumps, smallpox and measles. The settlers quickly adopted the therapeutic use of the plant, and since that time it has become one of the top selling herbs in the United States. In the past century, hundreds of scientific articles have been written about echinacea. Most of the research during the past 10 years has focused on the immunostimulant properties of the plant.

Herbalists and pharmacologists point out the irony that almost all of the scientific research on this medicinal plant has been conducted not in the United States but in Germany. Echinacea preparations have become increasingly popular in Germany since the early 1900s. The herb was first analyzed and tested for homeopathic purposes in Germany and its medical use was later investigated by Dr. Gerhard Madaus in 1938. Echinacea was formerly used in the United States by native Americans and by eclectic physicians in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Preparations made from various plants and plant parts of the genus echinacea constituted the top-selling herbal medicine in health food stores in the United States from 1995 to 1998, with an estimated 9.6% of the total health-food dollar spent on herbs, according to a survey of about two hundred independent stores in 1996 (Richman and Witkowski, 1996, 1997, 1998).

Echinacea is used for preventing and treating the common cold, flu, and upper respiratory tract infections (URIs). It is also used to increase general immune system function and to treat vaginal candidiasis. The clinical literature tends to support the treatment for symptoms of colds, the flus, and URIs.

The constituents of echinacea include essential oil, polysaccharides, polyacetylenes, betain, glycoside, sesquiterpenes and caryophylene. It also contains copper, iron, tannins, protein, fatty acids and vitamins A, C, and E. The most important immune-stimulating components are the large polysaccharides, such as inulin, that increase the production of T-cells and increase other natural killer cell activity. Fat-soluble alkylamides and a caffeic acid glycoside called echinacoside also contribute to the herb's immune empowering effects.

Another immuno-stimulating property of the plant is its ability to help T-Cell activity. The echinacosides in Echinacea have antibiotic activity against streptococcus and staphylococcus, bacterial infections and are protectors to the thymus gland.
