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 response. Just walk through any cold and flu aisle in your supermarket or health food store, and you'll see loads of echinacea in all shapes and sizes.
We use several forms of Echinacea purpurea in our products, including fresh pressed juice, H20/ethanol extract, and a CO2 root extract.
Based on the extensive European medical research, we use the juice and H20/ethanol extracts of certified organic Echinacea purpurea aerial parts. The flowers and leaves in this form are rich in cichoric acid, polyphenols, and polysacchardies known as fructofuranosides. These compounds are key for activating your healthy immune response.
In addition, we've created a potent CO2 extract made exclusively with the roots of certified organic Echinacea purpurea. The root components are uniquely concentrated in a substance called alkylamides. Recent research indicates their main role is to support your recovery process by supporting a healthy inflammation response (versus stimulating the immune system). The key to isolating these beneficial compounds is pairing the correct part of the plant with the most effective extraction method. In this case, CO2 supercritical extraction is integral to yielding the valuable alkylamides fractions.
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.
