Health benefits at a glance:

First of all, what is echinacea? It’s an herb that has been known and used to support immune health for centuries.

There’s more than one kind of echinacea, and the various compounds that help your body protect itself are found in different parts of the plant. 

Life Extension® has created a powerful echinacea supplement for immune support from the two most studied and efficacious echinacea species with the use of whole-plant extracts

 

Why it works: 

The better your immune system is working, the easier it will be to stay healthy. Echinacea has a reputation for helping you stay healthy, and rightly so. 

The active compounds in this plant promote different kinds of activity in the immune system — all key players in a solid defense. They may also help inhibit inflammatory cytokines to support a healthy immune response. 

Though, it matters which species and which part of the plant your echinacea herbal supplement is made from though. Clinical studies show that the active compounds in echinacea roots, leaves, aerials, and stems support different parts of your immune system, so your body can build a robust response to challenges. 

Echinacea Elite’s capsules contain whole plant extracts of Echinacea purpurea and Echinacea angustifolia, which are found to be the two most immune-friendly species of the echinacea herb. Their multifaceted properties are shown to turn up your body’s natural defenses, giving you a robust immune system

Moreover, unlike other echinacea supplements, this complex of the two-species whole-plant echinacea is standardized for maximum efficacy


The science behind the product: 

  • Studies of immune health and echinacea 

The active compounds in echinacea, including echinacosides, alkamides, and phenolic compounds can encourage an active, healthy immune response in a variety of ways. Pre-clinical studies indicate that echinacea encourages natural killer (NK) cell activity as well as monocytes and macrophages. (1-4) 

NK cells are your body’s immediate response to previously unknown immune challenges, making them a crucial part of both seasonal and year-round preparedness

Both Echinacea Elite’s two spices (E. purpurea and E. angustifolia) are shown to help reduce the severity and duration of immune challenges. Clinical studies as well indicate that supplementing with echinacea may give you a better chance of staying healthy all season long. (5) 

  • Healthy inflammatory response and echinacea 

A family of chemical compounds, cytokines, are released by immune cells. 

The echinacea actives may help inhibit these inflammatory cytokines, which in return can promote a healthy and unhindered immune response. (6,7)
