Natural supplements to improve your immune system, Echinacea

Echinacea


Continuing the theme of how to increase our defenses naturally in these times of an apparent "pandemic", we have echinacea, it is a very versatile herb for immunological issues and has several studies showing its effectiveness in dealing with upper respiratory symptoms such as those that can be give a cough or the flu, and in fact studies from the University of Connecticut show that if I consume echinacea during the flu season, I reduce by half the chance of contagion and in infected people, in people who have already caught the flu, It reduces the duration of the table, as I have mentioned before, each supplement has its effective dose, it does not serve me to try consuming it in a low dose and the effective dose of echinacea ranges from 900 to 1,500 milligrams per day.

For high performance athletes.


But the benefits of echinacea are far from ending only because of the benefits it brings for the flu, echinacea stimulates a process called phagocytosis which is basically when your white blood cells eat different bacteria or other organisms, in turn stimulating lymphocytes and increases substances such as neuquins, interferon or immunoglobulins, immunoglobulins for example are what you know as antibodies and also another extra benefit if you want echinacea, is that it increases sports performance in height because it increases the production of a substance called erythropoietin that basically it makes you produce more red blood cells so at altitude you have more oxygen to function.

Very funny about the altitude thing, because when I lived in Albania, echinacea and chamomile were sold on the streets everywhere, but particularly popular with mountain people, and more specifically shepherds that go nearly to the mountaintops day in and day out. I guess these folks intuitively knew this somehow before science caught up with them.
