Echinacea fights viruses, help stimulates the immune system, and is especially effective against flu, yeast infections, and inflammatory problemss. Echinacea is usually taken as a capsule, extract, or liquid extract.
Echinacea is known to help avoid bacteria from attacking uninfected cells. The polysaccharides that are present in echinacea activate phagocytes (such as white blood cells and spleen cells) that ingest microbes such as viruses and bacteria, which in turn stimulates the immune system. Echinacea also acts in the same manner as interferon, which is the body's own natural anti-virus compound.
