The combined capsule contains Goldenseal, the herb that helps supports immune system function. It also contains Echinacea, the leading herb for immediate support of the immune system.
Goldenseal was discovered by the Aborigines of Northern Australia and is also a native plant of North America. Studies show that regular intake of Goldenseal Root may help the body's response to colds, flu, indigestion, and constipation as well as sinus and bladder infections. It is especially useful for diarrhea and chronic excess mucus in the bowels. Goldenseal cools infections of the mucous membranes, cleanses the blood, and lowers inflammation. Scientists have found that two active compounds, berberine and hydrastine help with enhancing overall health and promoting resistance.
Echinacea has historically been widely revered and used for its immune-stimulating, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral activity. It enhances resistance to colds and flu, it is useful for septicemia and skin complaints (such as boils, abscesses, or carbuncles), and is used as a mouthwash for gum problems. It is also used locally as an antiseptic for burns, wounds, bites, and skin ulcers, infections and to purify the blood and lymph systems. Recent studies have shown that Echinacea can increase white blood cell counts and thus support our immune system in fighting bacteria and viruses.
