Echinacea purpurea Extract
Echinacea, commonly known as coneflower, is at the very top of the list as one of the most well-known, researched, and respected immune-supporting herbs. Its popularity hinges on its tried and true ability to work with your own natural defenses to support a healthy immune defense. Just walk through any supplement aisle in your supermarket or health food store, and you'll see loads of echinacea products in all shapes and sizes.
Backed by extensive scientific research that each plant part has distinct benefits, we use several forms of Echinacea purpurea extracts in our products, including fresh pressed juice, a water & ethanol extract, and a CO2 root extract. The key to isolating these beneficial compounds is pairing the correct part of the plant with the most effective extraction method.
Echinacea’s flowers and leaves (aka aerial parts) are rich in cichoric acid, polyphenols, and polysaccharides known as fructofuranosides. These compounds are key for supporting an optimal immune defense. In addition, we've added a potent CO2 extract made exclusively with the roots of certified organic Echinacea purpurea, which are uniquely concentrated in alkylamides. Strong evidence indicates that these potent bioactive compounds promote immune cell balance for optimal resilience and recovery. Our precise, supercritical CO2 extraction method is essential for yielding these valuable alkylamides.
The end result of our specialized SuperPure® processing and sourcing is a powerful combination of Echinacea purpurea ingredients with a full spectrum of benefits for your whole body.
