It is antiseptic and antimicrobial, with properties that act to increase the number of white blood cells available to destroy bacteria and slow the spread of infection. Echinacea cleanses and purifies the bloodstream, and has been used effectively to treat boils. Echinacea promotes wound healing through the action of a chemical substance in the root known as caffeic acid glycoside. It has also been used to treat urinary infection and Candida albicans infections. Echinacea is useful in reducing fevers, and also useful in the treatment of hemorrhoids.
Clinical studies have found that the entire plant possesses medicinal properties. Echinacea is of particular benefit in the treatment of upper respiratory tract infections. Research has shown that Echinacea activates the macrophages that destroy cancer cells and pathogens. When taken after cancer treatments, an extract of the root has been found to increase the body's production of white blood cells.
