This organic blend of the two most popular Echinacea species (Echinacea purpurea and Echinacea angustifolia) is carefully grown on our certified organic farm. The herbs are harvested when they are most potent, and processed immediately to retain their beneficial constituents.
Echinacea was used by many Native American populations throughout the United States. This widespread use was adopted by the Eclectic physicians in the U.S. and its use was documented in medical texts until 1947. A German pharmaceutical manufacturer imported Echinacea purpurea to Germany in the 1930's, and since then, German and American scientists have been researching the clinical usefulness of the herb with an emphasis on supporting the immune system. This herb is popular both in Europe and in the US.
Since the era of the Eclectics, herbalists have known that all good quality Echinacea products cause a mild tingling sensation in the mouth. This is due to the alkylamides, which are recognized for their biological effect on the immune system.
As a result of many clinical trials that were done in the 1990's, Echinacea sales account for approximately 10% of the dietary supplement market. Many clinical trials are still being conducted today.

- Echinacea is perhaps the biggest household name in the world of herbs, and with good reason. The pharmacology is incredibly complex, especially when trying to compare all the different species, but suffice it to say that there are at least four different groups of chemicals which all have different, overlapping effects on the immune system. I personally attribute this plant to the fact that I haven't had a cold that lasted more than 2 days since I started studying herbalism. For acute infections, however, high doses are required, in the range of 2-4 caps every two hours. These capsules contain multiple species for a broader spectrum of immune stimulating phytochemicals without the tongue-tingling mouth-feel, which gets old real quick when taking the tincture. In addition to the benefit in cases of acute infection Echinacea can also support health for those with more long term immune challenges such as chronic infections, autoimmune conditions, cancers.' - Nick Becker.
