What is Echinacea?Echinacea has been used as a tonic by Native Americans for over 400 years. Before the emergence of antibiotics, Echinacea was recommended to promote a variety of health benefits (for both genders), and research suggests it may have natural antibiotic properties. Conditions like malaria, syphilis, blood poisoning and even scarlet fever are now treated with pharmaceutical antibiotics but that doesn't mean that they could not benefit from additional natural support. Today, Echinacea is one of the most popular herbs in America. Worldwide, more and more people are embracing the many health benefits that come with this herb. *
