Echinacea has a complex mix of active substances, some of which are antimicrobial, while others have a more direct effect on the human immune system*. It appears that Echinacea stimulates phagocytosis, a process where white blood cells move around invading harmful micro-organisms, release chemicals and so digest them. Echinacea appears to be most effective when combined with other immune-boosting nutrients. One medical study showed that a combination of vitamin C and Echinacea reduced cold incidence by 86%.
