Echinacea has long been valued as the medicine mans magic tonic. We use it too.
Due to the fact that we created Vocal eze to address “internal body care” starting with the throat.We made sure that echinacea was in the product because of its amazing harmony with aiding the body to wellness. As you can read on the label there are 4 sources of echinacea.The root,flower.stem and seed. I think we may be the only throat/internal body care company on the market to offer so much of a good thing. Having said that a study just came out that supports our knowing! The Big Secret is that Vocal eze is so much more than just a throat spray for singers! Thats why its used by everyone!
The efficacy of Echinacea purpurea in supporting a healthy immune system is based on modulatory effects on immune function. There are many factors linked to short or long term weakening of the immune system, that reduce the body’s natural defenses. Stress, lack of sleep, poor diet all can compromise the immune system’s ability to respond. Since it has been largely unknown how this modulation manifests in the body, and how the effects develop in subjects with weaker immune response, the goal of this study was to monitor several immune mediators during Echinacea treatment. (Effects of Echinaforce® treatment on ex vivo-stimulated blood cells, M.R. Ritchie, J. Gertsch, P. Klein, R. Schoop, Phytomedicine 2011;18:826-831)
Subjects whose immune cells showed initial “weak” immune reaction experienced exceptionally pronounced effects upon treatment. In contrast, there were no increased effects in subjects with a strong immune response. The authors chose the term “adaptive immune modulation” to describe the selective effects of Echinacea on subjects with weak immune response due to life situations causing short or long term weakening of the immune system.
