Focus Forever Echinacea Supreme Essential Echinacea y o u r w i n t e r s u p p l e m e n t Sue McGarrigle DIP I.O.N. Nutritional Therapist/Naturopath Echinacea Supreme is another unique formulation brought to you by Forever Living Products and is a superb nutritional supplement particularly for the winter months. Viruses cause colds and flu and as usual so many people are sneezing and wheezing at this time of year, some of us enduring never- ending colds and sore throats but in particular people are suffering from upper respiratory tract infections with an accompanying viral cough. Prevention is always better than cure and the secret to avoiding these bugs is to keep our immune systems in great shape. Should you need a quick route to recovery then a combination of bedrest, a good diet based on fruits, vegetables, wholegrain foods, fish, chicken and pulses and plenty of fluids will definitely help.
Echinacea has a rich tradition in the culture of the North American Plains Indians who used it to maintain their health duringthe winter months. The use of Echinacea has been validated by modern research in its ability to support the immune systemand give symptomatic relief of colds, flu and other upper respiratory tract infections. Its antiviral and antibacterial propertiesare most effective at the first signs of illness helping to limit the duration and severity of infection. Echinacea may also be ofvalue for recurrent infections including thrush and infections of the urinary tract, middle ear and respiratory tract. It has alsobeen used for sinus infections, bronchitis and herpes infections such as cold sores and shingles.
Forever Echinacea Supreme contains both of the most highly prized forms of Echinacea - Augustofolia and Purpurea, which are traditionally used together by many herbalists. Forever Echinacea Supreme also contains Goldenseal and Grapeseed extract for maximum benefits.
Related to the buttercup, the primary benefit of Goldenseal is its overall effect on immunity. As a natural antibiotic, it enablesthe immune system to fight infection. Goldenseal has a soothing and anti-inflammatory effect on mucous membranes andis used primarily for the respiratory, digestive and urinary tracts. It is beneficial for peptic ulcers and sinusitis, heartburn,indigestion and nausea. Berberine, one of its key active ingredients conditions the walls of the stomach and intestines,making it helpful for diarrhoea and gastritis. Its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory qualities also make it useful for urinary tractinfections. Combining Goldenseal with Echinacea is more powerful when combating the first signs of colds, flu and sorethroats than when used alone.
Grapeseed extract is widely known for its antioxidant properties and alongside Echinacea, helps to maintain the strength ofconnective tissue and the integrity of capillaries, helping the health of the heart and circulatory system. Its rich source offlavonoids also helps to strengthen the immune system especially during infections, inflammation and allergies.
