Ineffectiveness of echinacea for prevention of experimental rhinovirus colds. (1/92)

The purpose of this study was to assess the effectiveness of echinacea for the prevention of experimental rhinovirus colds. Infection occurred in 44 and 57% and illness occurred in 36 and 43% of the echinacea- and placebo-treated subjects, respectively. This preparation of echinacea had no significant effect on either the occurrence of infection or the severity of illness.  (+info)

Inflammation and Native American medicine: the role of botanicals. (2/92)

There is a growing interest in medicinal botanicals as part of complementary medicine in the United States. In particular, both physicians and consumers are becoming aware of the use of herbals by Native American societies; many botanicals sold today as dietary supplements in the United States were used by Native Americans for similar purposes. Yet, these supplements represent only a small number of the >2500 different plant species from vascular taxa, and >2800 species from all taxa, known to have been prized for their medicinal properties by the indigenous inhabitants of the North American continent. We review some of the studies of the immunomodulatory activities of botanicals used by native peoples of North America, the bioactive constituents responsible for those activities, and the mechanisms by which these constituents might modulate the immune system. We focus particularly on 3 species of purple coneflower (ECHINACEA:) because of the widespread use of purple coneflower in the United States to boost immunity and prevent upper respiratory infections. Seven of the 10 most common botanicals sold in the United States were used extensively by Native Americans. However, there are very few data to support such use and even less information about drug toxicity or interactions.  (+info)

Immunopharmacological activity of Echinacea preparations following simulated digestion on murine macrophages and human peripheral blood mononuclear cells. (3/92)

We have investigated the immunostimulatory, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant activities of various Echinacea raw materials and commercially available products on murine macrophages and human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs). To emulate oral dosing, a simulated digestion protocol was employed as a means of sample preparation. Echinacea-induced macrophage activation was used as a measure of immunostimulatory activity determined via quantitative assays for macrophage-derived factors including tumor necrosis factor alpha, interleukin (IL)-1alpha, IL-1beta, IL-6, IL-10, and nitric oxide. Echinacea herb and root powders were found to stimulate murine macrophage cytokine secretion as well as to significantly enhance the viability and/or proliferation of human PBMCs in vitro. In contrast, Echinacea extracts chemically standardized to phenolic acid or echinacoside content and fresh pressed juice preparations were found to be inactive as immunostimulatory agents but did display, to varying degrees, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.  (+info)

Deleterious effects of Echinacea purpurea and melatonin on myeloid cells in mouse spleen and bone marrow. (4/92)

The neurohormone, melatonin, a product of the pineal gland, is a potent immune cell stimulant. Phytochemicals contained in root extracts of the plant species Echinacea purpurea are also potent as immune cell stimulants. Both agents are potent stimulants of T, B, and/or natural killer cells, but little is known of their effect on other hemopoietic cells, specifically granular leukocytes, also participants in a wide variety of disease defense processes. Given their current popularity and availability for amelioration of a) jet lag and sleep disorders (melatonin) and b) virus-mediated respiratory infections (E. purpurea), we investigated the effects of these agents on granular leukocytes and their precursors, myeloid cells. Mice received these agents daily for 7 or 14 days via the diet, thus mimicking human administration, after which spleens and bone marrow were removed and assessed for mature, differentiated granulocytes and their myeloid progenitors. The influence of these agents was directly related to the stage of cell maturity. Administration of both agents together resulted in significantly elevated levels of myeloid progenitor cells in both bone marrow and spleen and significantly reduced levels of mature, functional granulocyte progeny in both organs, suggesting a) increased precursor proliferation, b) antiapoptosis among the progenitors, and/or c) inhibition of precursor maturation-the latter readily explaining the paucity of mature granulocyte progeny. In conclusion, individual administration of either the herbal derivative and melatonin was either without effect (E. purpurea) or even advantageous (melatonin) to cells of this lineage, but when administered together, these agents significantly perturbed myelopoiesis.  (+info)

Can herbal products be used safely during pregnancy? Focus on echinacea. (5/92)

QUESTION: Many of my patients are now using herbal medicines; some even use them during pregnancy. As we enter the "cold and flu" season, many are inquiring about use of the herb echinacea to prevent these ailments. Is there any evidence to suggest that use of echinacea during pregnancy is safe? ANSWER: Although herbal products have been used in the past during pregnancy and delivery, there is little evidence showing they are safe. Many authoritative reviews of echinacea report that its safety for use during pregnancy has not been established. A recent Motherisk study showed that use of echinacea during the first trimester of pregnancy was not associated with increased risk of major malformations.  (+info)

Immunological activity of larch arabinogalactan and Echinacea: a preliminary, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. (6/92)

The immunomodulating effects of two Echinacea species, E. purpurea and E. angustifolia and larch arabinogalactan extracted from Larix occidentalis were examined in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, prospective four-week clinical trial at a naturopathic medical school research center. SUBJECTS/MATERIALS: Forty-eight healthy female volunteers (22-51 y) were randomly assigned to one of six groups: standardized extract of E. purpurea (EP); ultra-refined E. purpurea/E. angustifolia (urEPA); E. purpurea/E. angustifolia (EPA); E. purpurea/E. angustifolia plus larch arabinogalactan (EPALA); larch arabinogalactan (LA); or placebo. METHODS: Immunological tests with enumerative measurements, stool cultures for Lactobacillus acidophilus and yeast, and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) using the Medical Outcomes Study derived SF-36 self-administered questionnaire were assessed at baseline and at four weeks. RESULTS: Complement properdin increased by 21 percent in the EPA group (p<0.05) and by 18 percent in the EPALA group (p<0.05), compared to the placebo group (p>0.05). SF-36 showed improvements in overall physical health, vitality, and emotional health in the same two groups (EPA and EPALA). DISCUSSION: Volunteers in the EPA and EPALA groups had increased production of complement properdin after four weeks of intervention. The increased complement properdin may be an indication of one aspect of immune system stimulation in patients treated with either E. purpurea/E. angustifolia or E. purpurea/E. angustifolia plus larch arabinogalactan.  (+info)

The effect of herbal remedies on the production of human inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines. (7/92)

BACKGROUND: Some herbal remedies are sold as food additives and are believed to have immune-enhancing properties. OBJECTIVES: To study the effect of five herbal remedies--Sambucol Black Elderberry Extract, Sambucol Active Defense Formula and Sambucol for Kids (with known antiviral properties), Protec and Chizukit N (containing propolis and Echinacea, claimed to be immune enhancers)--on the production of cytokines, one of the main components of the immune system. METHODS: The production of four inflammatory cytokines (interleukin-1 beta, tumor necrosis factor alpha, and IL-6 and IL-8) and one anti-inflammatory cytokine (IL-10) was tested using blood-derived monocytes from 12 healthy donors. RESULTS: The Sambucol preparations increased the production of five cytokines (1.3-6.2 fold) compared to the control. Protec induced only a moderate production of IL-8 (1.6 fold) and IL-10 (2.3 fold) while Chizukit N caused only a moderate increase in IL-10 production (1.4 fold). Both Protec and Chizukit N caused moderate decreases in IL-1 beta, TNF alpha and IL-6 production. Lipopolysaccharide, a known activator of monocytes, induced the highest levels of cytokine production (3.6-10.7 fold). CONCLUSIONS: The three Sambucol formulations activate the healthy immune system by increasing inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines production, while the effect of Protec and Chizukit N is much less. Sambucol could therefore have immunostimulatory properties when administered to patients suffering from influenza (as shown before), or immunodepressed cancer or AIDS patients who are receiving chemotherapy or other treatments.  (+info)

Echinacea. (8/92)

Echinacea is the name of a genus of native North American plants, commonly known as the purple coneflower. The most widely used herbal product in the United States is a liquid extract made from the root of Echinacea purpurea. Because the active component of the plant has not been identified, commercial echinacea products are not typically standardized to any particular component. The research literature on echinacea is difficult to evaluate because of the heterogeneity of the products used in various studies. The herb has been recommended as a prophylactic treatment for upper respiratory infection and is widely used for this indication. However, based on the current literature, it appears that prophylactic echinacea does not have a significant impact on the frequency, severity, or duration of upper respiratory infection. The data regarding treatment of upper respiratory infection appear to support a modest positive effect. No significant herb-drug interactions with echinacea have been reported; adverse effects reported generally have been uncommon and minor, including abdominal upset, nausea, and dizziness.  (+info)

Echinacea is valuable for its pharmaceutical, medicinal and agricultural properties. Flowers and leaves of Echinacea purpurea (L.) Moench and Echinacea pallida (Nutt.) Nutt. were extracted with methanol, filtered, and solvents were removed by rotary evaporator to get four separate extracts. The flowers and leaves of both plants were boiled in water then extracted with ethyl acetate to achieve another four extracts. Quantifications of chemical constituents of extracts were determined by TOF-LC/MS. The main compound of methanol extracts of E. purpurea and E. pallida leaves and flowers was cichoric acid. Caffeic acid was the chief compound of water extracts of both plant leaves and flowers. The antioxidant activities including DPPH free radical scavenging, ABTS cation radical scavenging and reducing power were assayed and structure-activity relationships were postulated. Water extracts of both Echinaceae species of flowers and leaves revealed excellent antioxidant activities. ...

Echinacea Purpurea Root tincture is popularly believed to stimulate the bodys immune system and ward off infections, particularly the common cold. There is, however, no evidence to suggest this at all and it is more a case of folklore rules or the triumph of hope over expectation that has fostered this belief.. It is a natural antibiotic though and Echinacea Root is used to treat infections and to combat low resistance to sickness & to enhance the immune system. This is probably where the preventative cold and flu belief originates.. Echinacea Root has been used in the treatment of chronic recurring vaginal yeast infections. Echinacea purpurea, called King of the blood purifiers in some herbal manuscripts, has also been traditionally used to help acne, boils and difficult skin conditions where there is some evidence to suggest that its efficacy is well deserved. It has a slight numbing effect that is useful in the treatment for the discomfort of cold sores, and it is also considered to help ...
BACKGROUND: It is important to understand the efficacy of immunoregulatory materials, herbal remedies or probiotics, in different parts of immune system following vaccination with different tropism. OBJECTIVES: Aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of Echinacea purpurea and a probiotic (protexin) on systemic and mucosal immune response in turkey. METHODS: A total of 288 1-day-old male turkey poults were randomized into 6 groups as follow: Group T1: Turkeys received Echinacea purpurea at the rate of 1 ml /1 liter water and Newcastle disease virus (NDV) vaccine, Group T2: Turkeys received probiotic at the rate of 1 g /1 liter water and NDV vaccine, Group T3: Positive control that turkey received NDV vaccine without any additives. Group T4: Turkeys received Echinacea purpurea at the rate of 1 ml /1 liter water without NDV vaccine.

The genus Echinacea, indigenous to North America, belongs to the aster family (Asteraceae) and includes nine different species (Anon. 1997a). Of these species, E. purpurea, the purple coneflower, is both most commonly used as a medicinal herb and intensively studied. Less popular species of the genus include E. pallida, the pale purple coneflower, and E. angustifolia, the narrow-leafed purple coneflower (Foster 1997, Anon. 1996).. According to one source, Echinacea seems to have been used as a remedy for more ailments than any other plant (Anon. 1997a). All parts of this plant have been used for medicinal purposes including snakebites, common colds, toothaches, sores, wounds, and herpes. Due to its demonstrated immune-boosting properties, current research is examining its potential to treat cancer, arthritis, AIDS, and chronic fatigue syndrome. In West Germany, more than 200 pharmaceutical preparations, including extracts, salves, and tinctures, are made from Echinacea plants (Anon. ...

The information regarding the effect of the mycorrhizal inoculation on different Echinacea species is not available in detail. Therefore, here we determined the changes in the biochemical composition of echinacea as a result of mycorrhizal inoculation. This experiment was undertaken to assess the effect of the mycorrhizal association on biochemical properties of different Echinacea species (E. angustifolia, E. purpurea, E. pallida). Here various echinacea species were inoculated with mycorrhiza to examine the species richness in different traits. The results established that biological traits (plant dry matter, chlorophyll content, carotenoid, N content, P content, K content). Among biochemical properties chlorophyll content, carotenoid and N, P, K were significantly higher under E. Purpurea than the E. angustifolia and E.pallida. Total dry matter was higher under E. angustifolia (49.23 g) and minimum dry matter was found under E. pallida(40.07 g). Overall, mycorrhizal inoculation is effective in

The herbal remedy echinacea could halve a persons risk of catching a cold, say US researchers. Echinacea is native to North American prairies and is thought to boost the bodys immune system. Researchers from the University of Connecticut School of Pharmacy say it can also decrease the odds of developing a common cold by 58% and its duration by a day-and-a-half. Published inside The Lancet Infectious Diseases, the scientists reviewed 14 different studies on Echinaceas effects on the immune system. People were 86% less likely to catch a cold when taking Echinacea combined with a vitamin C supplement. Echinacea alone reduced their chances of falling ill by 65%. When given to people directly inoculated with a rhinovirus, echinacea reduced their chances of catching a cold by 35%. The scientists say more research is needed to check that the safety of the different echinacea formulas, before making any recommendations.. The Lancet Your comments: (Terms and conditions apply).

Preparations of the plant Echinacea are widely used in some European countries and in North America for common colds. Echinacea preparations available on the market differ greatly as different types (species) and parts (herb, root or both) of the plant are used, different manufacturing methods (drying, alcoholic extraction or pressing out the juice from fresh plants) are used and sometimes also other herbs are added.. We reviewed 24 controlled clinical trials with 4631 participants investigating the effectiveness of several different Echinacea preparations for preventing and treating common colds or induced rhinovirus infections. Our review shows that a variety of products prepared from different Echinacea species, different plant parts and in a different form have been compared to placebo in randomized trials. Due to the significant differences in the preparations tested, it was difficult to draw strong conclusions. Five trials were rated as having a low risk of bias in all five categories of ...

Next on our list of herbs is Echinacea also known as Black Sampson it is referred to by the native Americans of the plains as snake root, because it was traditionally used to treat snake bites. Natives have also used the plant to treat tooth aches. The Omaha-Ponca and Cheyenne Indians were probably the most notable groups to use the plant. They would rub the juices of the roots on their bodies to heal burns, or like mentioned above would use it to treat toothaches. Today echinacea is used to boost the immune system and speed up recovery of the common cold. There are three common types of Echinacea; Echinacea purpurea is the most common it can be found from Georgia to Oklahoma, north to Michigan and east to Ohio.

By Christopher Vasey, ND. Several hundred plants possess antibiotic properties-from the most common plants of our local surroundings to rare, exotic species. People have been benefiting from the healing properties of these natural antibiotics for thousands of years.. One Of the Mother Tinctures Purple Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea). This medicinal plant is better known by its Latin name Echinacea. The purple coneflower is a plant that grows wild in the great prairies of North America but is increasingly cultivated in gardens there and in Europe. The stem, which is around 20 inches tall, is crowned by beautiful flowers that bear a passing resemblance to large daisies with mauve-red petals. There are many varieties of echinacea, but only two are used for their medicinal properties: Echinacea purpurea and Echinacea augustiflora.. Archaeological digs have revealed that Native Americans were using echinacea at least from the beginning of the seventeenth century to treat infections of all kinds: ...
Pale purple coneflower [Echinacea pallida (Nutt.) Nutt.] was grown within three container volumes (90, 105, and 340 cm3) under subirrigation and overhead irrigation treatments. Subirrigated coneflowers showed increased seedling quality with more biomass (14%), better nitrogen use efficiency (13%), greater nitrogen content (N; 11%), more height (15%), and lower mortality compared with overhead-irrigated seedlings. Plants also showed increasing height, biomass, and N content with increasing container volume. Overhead irrigated coneflowers had more leachate compared with subirrigated seedlings, which produced none. Leachate electrical conductivity and N were monitored throughout the growing season and decreased at similar rates, whereas subirrigation effluent levels remained constant. Subirrigation offers a viable alternative to traditional overhead irrigation systems by producing this native plant with equal or better quality without discharging potentially harmful leachate into the environment. ...
Echinacea: A recent analysis of echinacea studies has concluded that this popular botanical medicine significantly reduces the risk youll catch a cold and also can cut a colds duration. Yet it wasnt long ago that a New England Journal of Medicine study (July 28, 2005) stated just the opposite, calling the effects of echinacea not clinically significant in fighting colds. So which report should you trust? According to Craig I. Coleman, PharmD, assistant professor of pharmacy practice at the University of Connecticut, who helped conduct this latest echinacea research, there are many possible reasons why one individual study might have found this treatment ineffective. For example, there are different types of echinacea, different dosages, different frequencies of dosage, etc. In the case of the New England Journal of Medicine study, Dr. Coleman points out that a less effective species of echinacea was used (Echinacea angustifolia rather than Echinacea purpurea), and at a dosage that was only a ...
Echinacea is most frequently taken orally. It may also be applied topically for treatment of small superficial wounds.5 Injectable preparations have been used in research studies but are not generally available and have been associated with severe reactions.2 For oral administration, echinacea may be given as a tablet or capsule, as herb juice or tea, or as a tincture. Various dosages have been used depending on the formulation but these generally relate to use for the prevention or treatment of the common cold or influenza.1,2 Recommended doses tend to be based on historical practice.2 Use in children less than 12 is not recommended and echinacea is contra-indicated in those less than 1 year.5 Preparations (extracts and whole-plant products) are produced from the roots or above ground parts of E. purpurea, E. angustifolia and E.pallida. Products available as echinacea vary in composition depending on the species, parts of the plant used and the extraction method used in production.6 ...
Although Echinacea is now very well-known, it is essentially a new remedy. Many herbs with as powerful effects as Echinacea have been known throughout the world for centuries, but this wonderful remedy came into prominence during the last century with the Eclectic school and cannot be found in the ancient herbals.. Except where noted, the information in this newsletter comes from an excellent little book, Echinacea Exalted... See bibliography,. There are several species in the genus Echinacea, and many of them are used medicinally, although the pallida is also used, sometimes being considered a sub-species of the angustifolia. The purpurea has also been frequently used medicinally. We will mention other species in the section on Related Plants; the above are the commonest medicinal species..

Researchers discovered this after bathing cells in echinacea extract and then exposing them to two potent viruses: those that cause influenza and herpes. Unlike the untreated cells, only a small proportion of echinacea-treated cells became infected.. A study in Germany in 1978 found that in the presence of echinacea, viruses and bacteria had a greatly diminished capacity for causing infections. That means the herb either prevents the virus from reproducing or actively competes with the virus for receptor sites on cells to which the pathogen is naturally attracted, thus preventing microbial invaders from gaining entrance to the cells.. Several research groups have tried to make sense of the echinacea studies using a process called metanalysis. This is a mathematical method that treats all the data of different studies as if the information were part of one large study.. All the groups note that the results of the research are inconsistent, but they do say that various preparations of echinacea ...
Abstract: Botanical extracts of Echinacea purpurea have been widely used for the treatment of upper respiratory infections. We sought to chemically examine fungal endophytes inhabiting E. purpurea, and to identify compounds produced by these endophytes with in vitro cytokine-suppressive activity. Twelve isolates from surface sterilized seeds of E. purpurea were subjected to fractionation and major components were isolated. Sixteen secondary metabolites belonging to different structural classes were identified from these isolates based on NMR and mass spectrometry data. The compounds were tested for their influence on cytokine secretion by murine macrophage-type cells. Alternariol (1), O-prenylporriolide (4), porritoxin (10) ß-zearalenol (13), and (S)-zearalenone (14) inhibited production of TNF-a from RAW 264.7 macrophages stimulated with LPS in the absence of any significant cytotoxicity. This is the first report of a cytokine-suppressive effect for 4. The results of this study are ...
In order to assess the immunopathological effects of aqueous Echinacea purpurea extract (EPE) on mice experimentally challenged with Pasteurella multocida serotype A, forty female BALB/c mice were randomly divided into four groups. The groups included a control group (received sterile distilled water 2 times/week for 2 weeks, intraperitoneally and then 100 μl sterile saline intranasally), a PMA group (received sterile distilled water as the control group and after 2 weeks, 5.6 × 103 CFU/ml of P. multocida serotype A, intranasally), an EPE+PMA group (received E. purpurea extract intraperitoneally 2 times/week for 2 weeks and then challenged as the PMA group) and an EPE group (received E. purpurea extract as EPE+PMA group and then 100 μl sterile saline intranasally). After 24 and 48 h post challenge, half of the animals in each group were sacrificed and analyzed for bacterial counts in their lungs and livers, TNFα serum levels and histapathological changes. The results showed significant differences
Considering the advantages of using medicinal herbs as supplementary treatments to sensitize conventional anti-cancer drugs, studying functional mechanisms and regulatory effects of Echinacea purpurea (as a non-cannabinoid plant) and Cannabis sativa (as a cannabinoid plant) are timely and required. The potential effects of such herbs on lung cancer cell growth, apoptosis, cell cycle distribution, cellular reactive oxygen species (ROS) level, caspase activity and their cannabinomimetic properties on the CB2 receptor are addressed in the current study. The cytotoxic effect of both herb extracts on the growth of lung cancer cells (A549) was assessed using the MTT assay. The annexin-V-FITC staining and propidium iodide (PI) staining methods were applied for the detection of apoptosis and cell cycle distribution using flow cytometry. The cellular level of ROS was measured using 7′-dichlorofluorescin diacetate (DCFH-DA) as a fluorescent probe in flow cytometry. The caspase 3 activity was assessed using a

The six authors conducted reviews on this subject in 1998, 2006 and 2008 and wanted to do an update to include several new trials conducted since then. Weve been doing this for so long and are very familiar with past research-which has been mixed from the very beginning, says author Bruce Barrett, MD, PhD, from the department of family medicine at the University of Wisconsin in Madison.. The research team reviewed 24 randomized controlled trials to determine whether Echinacea was a safe and effective cold prevention and treatment. Trials included 4631 participants and 33 preparations, along with placebo. Echinacea products studied in these trials varied widely according to characteristics of three different plant species, the part of the plant used and method of manufacturing.. People who get colds spend $8 billion annually on pharmaceutical products, including supplements such as Echinacea, Barrett noted. The authors meta-analyses suggest that at least some Echinacea preparations may reduce ...
Purple Coneflower (Echinacea). It is time to plant your first seeds of this wonderful and beautiful medicinal flower. I just planted mine the other day. You need to get some good potting soil and some type of tray. Put the potting soil about an inch thick on the bottom of the container you are using. Pour a good source of warm water over the soil until it is saturated thoroughly. Place a seed about every 2-3 inches on top of the potting soil. Cover the seeds with about inches of potting soil and set it in a warm place. Do not set in direct sunlight until the seedlings have the first true leaves showing then place container somewhere and keep away from direct sunlight. Add water again and do not over water. To give plants more strength place in shade outside for several days (bring in plants at night). Gradually expose plants to full sunlight.. You can transplant or dig holes deep enough to cover roots and press gently around plants. Another way of planting is you can prepare a flower bed and ...

We harvest each part of Echinacea during its peak season, when the energy is in the part we are harvesting. This helps us ensure that we are extracting each plant part when its activity is at its peak.. The first Echinacea harvest of the year is the leaf and flower, which we collect in the plants second year of growth. Armfuls of Echinacea are stripped of their purple flowers and coarse leaves, and their pithy stems are sent to our compost piles. The leaves and flowers are bundled and sent down the road to our processing facility, where they are tested and extracted while still fresh and succulent.. Echinacea seed is our second harvest of the year. We gather seeds from plants that have continued to flower throughout the summer. This harvest generally requires an all-crop harvester, a machine that makes quick work of separating the chaff and stem from the seed. Some smaller fields can be harvested by hand, though. After the seeds have been thoroughly cleaned, we will send them to our facility ...

The Hydrating Facial Mist is great when you need a quick pick up during the day. The spray is made to revitalize your skin and add anti-aging ingredients that help rehydrate when you need it. Its particularly nice if you wear mineral makeup since you can spray it on and refresh the look so you dont look so powdery through the day. Its not meant to be shaken which of course I did the first time I used it. Instead just use it as it is so the mist is a mist and not a splash of product. It has a very subtle almost herbal fragrance and its refreshing and not sticky. (Key ingredients: Sodium PCA, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Juice, Echinacea Angustifolia (Echinacea) Flower Extract, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, Camelia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Pelargonium Graveolense (Geranium) Oil).

Interpretive Summary: We were the first to identify and report that chicoric acid can be found within basil leaves, a widely used culinary herb. Chicoric acid is the main phenolic compound in Echinacea purpurea extracts sold as dietary supplements in the United States. In basil leaves, we found chicoric acid to be the second most abundant phenolic after rosmarinic acid. Basil is a more commonly available and inexpensive source for chicoric acid than E. purpurea. The impact of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi on basil phenolics was also explored. Technical Abstract: This is the first report to identify the presence of chicoric acid (cichoric acid; also known as dicaffeoyltartaric acid) in basil leaves. Rosmarinic acid, chicoric acid, and caftaric acid (in the order of most abundant to least; all derivatives of caffeic acid) were identified in fresh basil leaves. Rosmarinic acid was the main phenolic found in both leaves and stems. Chicoric acid was not present in sweet basil stems, although a low ...

Abstract:It is debated whether the use of herbal supplements in endurance sports, in order to have a better performance, is correct or not, from the perspective of both as safety and as effectiveness. In this review we try to find out if the most common herbal supplements (Echinacea, Rhodiola, Ginseng) are effective in the improvement of performance or in the modulation of the immune system. According to the results of our review, the prevalent effect is adaptogenic rather than ergogenic, with a better tolerance of ...
Honey may be a minimally effective cough treatment.[20] A Cochrane review found the evidence to recommend for or against its use in children to be weak.[21] In light of this they found it was better than no treatment, placebo, and diphenhydramine but not better than dextromethorphan for relieving cough symptoms.[21] Honeys use as a cough treatment has been linked on several occasions to infantile botulism and accordingly should not be used in children less than one year old.[22] Many alternative treatments are used to treat the common cold. A 2007 review states that, alternative therapies (i.e., Echinacea, vitamin C, and zinc) are not recommended for treating common cold symptoms; however, ... Vitamin C prophylaxis may modestly reduce the duration and severity of the common cold in the general population and may reduce the incidence of the illness in persons exposed to physical and environmental stresses.[23] A 2014 review also found insufficient evidence for Echinacea.[24] A 2009 review ...

Medications and supplements. Certain medications such as antibiotics, NSAIDs, and acid-blockers can make someone more susceptible to developing an autoimmune condition by having a negative effect on the health of the gut. While most nutritional supplements and herbs wont trigger or exacerbate an autoimmune thyroid condition such as Graves Disease or Hashimotos Thyroiditis, there are possible exceptions. For example, some natural healthcare professionals recommend for people with Hashimotos to avoid Echinacea and chlorella out of fear that these will further enhance the immune system response, thus exacerbating, or possibly even causing an autoimmune condition. However, this is controversial, and I spoke about this more in past blog post entitled Echinacea: Harmful for Hashimotos, Beneficial For Graves Disease? [1]. Past procedures and surgeries.
