Chicory is a native American medicinal plant, named so because of its conical head, on which seeds grow that resemble the spines of an angry hedgehog (echinos from the Greek is the name for hedgehogs). Archaeologists have discovered evidence that Native Americans used echinacea to treat infections and wounds.

Throughout history, people have used echinacea to treat scarlet fever, syphilis, malaria, septicemia and diphtheria. Although this plant was popular during the 18th and 19th centuries, its use began to decline in the United States after the introduction of antibiotics. Echinacea preparations became increasingly popular in Germany throughout the 20th century. In fact, most of the scientific research on Echinacea was conducted in Germany.


Today people use echinacea to shorten the duration of colds and to reduce symptoms such as sore throat (pharyngitis), cough and fever. Many botanists also recommend echinacea to help boost the immune system and fight infections in the body. But echinacea has many more benefits discovered in recent years of research.

Fights cold, flu and respiratory tract infections

Studies have shown that echinacea reduces the chances of developing a common cold by up to 58%. Echinacea reduces the duration of a common cold by up to a day and a half. Echinacea is one of the most effective natural remedies when we talk about mild forms of cold or flu. Another study proved that the immune system can be strongly influenced by the level of echinacea you can consume. It seems that 10 mg of echinacea, administered over a period of 10 days, is effective in stimulating the immune system

Treats and prevents liver diseases

According to studies, echinacea is also beneficial in treating liver problems. The plant contains ingredients with a detoxifying role and at the same time protects the liver.

Fights urinary tract infections

Research has shown that the application of warm echinacea tea helps to calm the symptoms (reduces inflammation) of urinary infection and in some cases the application of an echinacea cream reduces the risk of vaginal infections by up to 16%.

Treats oral diseases

Studies have shown a strong link between the consumption of echinacea and a decrease in the risk of gingivitis (an oral disease that occurs due to a bacterial infection). Moreover, regular consumption of echinacea helps to keep teeth healthy.

Heals wounds, eczema and psoriasis

Echinacea has been used for at least 100 years to treat skin problems. Doctors have confirmed its benefits for healing eczema, minor wounds, psoriasis, insect bites or skin infections. Echinacea has an anti-inflammatory role, reducing infection and preventing infection of open wounds.

Supports brain health

Echinacea consumption can be used successfully to treat nervous system problems such as ADHD, anxiety, depression or social phobias. To be able to enjoy these effects, you must consume a maximum of 20 mg once.

Lowers blood pressure

The anti-inflammatory ingredients in echinacea make it possible to reduce blood pressure. Studies have shown that echinacea, consumed regularly, helps maintain blood pressure within normal limits.

It has an antioxidant role

There are several studies that have demonstrated the antioxidant role of echinacea. Thus, the plant consumed in teas or capsules helps to eliminate free radicals and avoid oxidative stress at the cellular level.
