Natural Herbal Remedies for Immunity

Echinacea (Echinacea pulpurea, E. angustifolia)

Echinacea is one of the best-known immune- enhancing herbs. It can be used internally or externally.

Echinacea stimulates the white blood cells that help fight infections in the body. Research has shown that echinacea enhances the activity of a particular type of white blood cells-macrophages. A particular glycoprotein in echinacea was found to significantly increase the killing effect of macrophages on tumor cells. A number of studies have found that echinacea boosts the body's ability to fight Listeria, a bacterium that causes a deadly form of food poisoning, and Candida yeast.
