Echinacea Tablets and Supplements: FAQs
What is Echinacea? Is it safe?
Echinacea is a native North American plant that is actually related to the daisy family. With bright purple flowers, all parts of the plant have long been used with many beneficial effects in supporting immunity and lowering inflammation and blood sugar levels.
As a herbal remedy, Echinacea is quite safe and can be purchased from a chemist. However, we always recommend that you speak with a qualified professional first before adding any supplements, or tablets into your routine, just to be safe.
Can herbal cold and flu echinacea supplements help?
Cold and flu tablets that contain active ingredients, such as pain/ fever relievers and decongestants, tend to be different from herbal-based immunity products.
While these can be taken when you are already sick with a cold or flu to reduce your symptoms, herbal remedies like Echinacea are often taken to prevent or reduce a cold’s duration. Some herbal medicines are made up of a combination of well-known herbs, like ginkgo, ginseng and vitamin C, each with immune-boosting properties.
Although over-the-counter cold and flu medications may help minimise your symptoms so you can get on with your day, a herbal formula might prevent a cold from getting worse in the first place.
Do I have to take it every day? Or only when I get sick?
Some consumers choose to take daily immunity supplements to support their wellness and wellbeing during the winter. Other consumers may decide to take Echinacea tablets and supplements when they feel the flu coming on to help minimise its severity or prevent an outbreak.
The way you feel while taking the tablets will influence how often you should take them. You should also take other lifestyle factors into account, like how often you usually get sick, whether you have young kids, what your stress levels are like, and so on.
We recommend speaking to a qualified professional to determine how often you need to take these supplements.
