Echinacea, more commonly known as the purple cornflower, is one of, if not the most popular herb worldwide. It reduces symptoms of various ailments.

Besides reducing symptoms of ailments, echinacea also boosts immunity, lowers blood sugar levels, and reduces anxiety — which is why it’s a popular supplement ingredient.

1. Boosts Immunity

Echinacea is popular for its immune system-boosting effects.

Several recent studies show that echinacea helps your immune system fight viruses and infections, resulting in quicker recovery from illnesses.

That is one reason why echinacea is commonly used to prevent the common cold.

According to this recent review of 14 studies, taking echinacea supplements can lower your risk of developing a common by cold by over 50%, along with shortening the duration of the common cold by up to one and a half day.

However, those studies are not conclusive, which means that the effects of echinacea on the common cold are not confirmed as more research is needed.

To summarize, while echinacea boosts immunity, its effects on the common cold are unclear.

2. Lowers Blood Sugar Levels

High blood sugar levels can lead to chronic health issues, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and several other chronic conditions.

Several test tube studies conclude that echinacea helps lower blood sugar levels.

According to this test tube study, echinacea extract suppresses enzymes that digest carbohydrates — which means it reduces the amount of sugar that enters your body.

Furthermore, another study suggests that echinacea extract makes cells more sensitive to Insulin by activating the PPAR-y receptor.

The PPAR-y receptor removes excess fat in the blood, which makes it easier for your cells to respond to sugar and insulin.

3. Anti-Inflammatory

As you may know, inflammation is your body’s natural way of defending and healing itself.

However, inflammation often exceeds its normal duration and raises your risk of developing several health issues, some of which are chronic.

Multiple recent studies have shown that echinacea can reduce excess inflammation.

According to this study on 30 adults with osteoarthritis, taking an echinacea supplement helped reduce swelling, inflammation, and chronic pain.


Health Issues Associated With Echinacea Deficiency

People who consume echinacea daily have a lower risk of suffering from several health issues, among which the notable ones are the following:

  • Acne
  • Anxiety
  • Certain types of cancer
  • High blood sugar levels
  • Acute and chronic inflammation

Daily Recommended Intake

The daily recommended intake (DRI) of echinacea varies by the purpose of use. For instance, the DRI of echinacea for preventing the common cold is 2,400-4,000 milligrams.

We just completed a very large Homeopathic tablet order that required involvement from 4 different facilities. There was nobody else in the country that was willing to help us that we called until we found superior. First shipment came last week and we couldn’t be happier or more impressed with the team. Thank you Justine, Phil, Stephenie you are the best!

I was choosing between two companies to create a formulation, and it came down to their level of service, expertise and confidence in their ability to execute. After speaking to Phil, their lead guy who knows all things supplements and is very easy to communicate with, was enthusiastic and helped to create a strategy to see my vision through. The last thing you want is a transactional relationship in this industry, so whether you’re a first timer or a veteran, these guys know how to add value no matter what level you’re at. Highly recommend Superior and their team to get the job done.
When they say “Superior” they aren’t kidding. Of over 100 companies on our NSF list that we called, and over 20 that we talked to, Superior was the ONLY one that consistently answered their phones, worked incredibly diligently to problem solve and R&D an incredibly complex patented proprietary product, and consistently was two or three steps ahead of us, the landscape and their competitors. Looking forward to a long relationship Superior!
We’ve been using Superior for over 5 years. We came to them because our last manufacturer stopped making the capsule size I needed. I looked everywhere for a replacement. Luckily, I found Superior. They quoted me a fair price and sourced a hard to find ingredient quickly. In the 5 years we’ve had them make our product, which is a custom formulation, they have never delivered late once. Quality control is very high and I get constant updates from Phil our point person while it is being manufactured. I cannot recommend them enough.
Our previous manufacturer was 3 months late on a production and barely spoke with us. We have run many runs with Superior and as with all manufacturing, there was an order that was a little late because of poor crop growth. Not only did they warn us ahead of time they showed us the list of suppliers they were calling day and night to try to find replacement material. Best company ever!
Jake, Justine and Phil are just a few of the team members we have had the pleasure of working with at Superior. As a marketing agency working in the supplement industry, we work with many suppliers on behalf of our clients. I especially appreciate Superior Supplements Manufacturing because of their dedication to customer relationships. They go to extreme measures to ensure quality ingredients, fair pricing and great turn around times. The staff is also extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this team.
