Echinacea plant has a rich tradition in the culture of the North Plains Indians, who use it more than any other plant to help maintain their health during winter. They also applied root poultices, used Echinacea mouthwash and drank the tea. It was prominent in America until the 1940’s. The European, who discovered it in the 1930’s, still uses it extensively.
Botanist named the plant after hedgehog (Echinus) to describe its prickly, cone-like center. It grows naturally in the Midwest states from western Pennsylvania to Kansas and as far south as Northern Texas.
Hundreds of scientific studies have indicated that Echinacea can help support immune function; it can also help protect hyaluronic acid from being dissolved.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is one of the main defense mechanism of the body; it is made of a jelly-like substance. HA occurs in the tissues between cells to “cement” them together. There is an enzyme, hyaluronidase, which attacks HA in a way not fully understood.
When it does, the HA quickly loses its viscosity, and this protective “cement” loses its effectiveness. If the enzyme is allowed to destroy the integrity of the HA barrier, immune function may suffer. Echinacea has been shown to prevent the enzyme from dissolving HA.
