Echinacea Remedies


Echinacea Research
One placebo-controlled clinical study of 160 patients with infections of the upper respiratory tract has been performed. Significant improvement was observed after patients were treated with an aqueous-alcoholic tincture (1: 5) at 90 drops/day (900 mg roots). The duration of the illness decreased from 13 to 9.8 days for bacterial infections, and from 12.9 to 9.1 days for viral infections.
