Now that cold and flu season is upon us, you may be trying anything and everything to not get sick. Aside from the obvious things like getting a flu shot and taking a lot of vitamins, there are a quite a few things you can do to help boost your immune system.
If you are a frequent follower of natural health remedies, than no doubt you have heard the numerous health claims surrounding echinacea. Echinacea, if you haven’t heard of it, is a species of a cone shaped flower and is similar in appearance to a daisy.
Many of the main chemical constituents found in the plant (flavonoids, inulin, polysaccharides and vitamin C) have been known to stimulate the immune system. By drinking echinacea tea (maybe with a little bit of honey), you may be able to help your chances of not getting sick. You can also take a pill form of echinacea if you are not a tea person.
