Echinacea, the purple coneflower, is a genus of flowering plants in the daisy family native to North America. The plant has been used for medicinal purposes by Native American tribes for centuries; we know today it supports the normal functioning of the immune system.

Echinacea's Rise In Popularity

The turn of the 20th century saw echinacea become popular in Europe and widely used to promote general well-being.
Its popularity as a well-being herb declined in the mid-20th century with the rise of modern healthcare. Still, in recent decades, echinacea has experienced a resurgence in popularity due to growing interest in alternative and complementary philosophies.

Echinacea Tea And Supplements

Echinacea is commonly used in herbal tea, dietary supplement, capsule, tablet, or tinctures because the plant's active compounds support the normal functioning of the immune system.
It's important to note that while echinacea is generally considered safe, some evidence suggests that taking it in high doses or for prolonged periods may cause side effects. Hence, always talk to your healthcare professional before taking this or any other dietary supplement.
