American Indians were the first to use Echinacea for various ailments including sore throat, tonsillitis and cough. The main indications nowadays are for the adjuvant therapy and prophylaxis of recurrent infections of the upper respiratory tract (common colds).
Echinacea has an antibacterial1 and antiviral effect on many micro-organisms that cause colds, flu and upper respiratory tract infections. Symptoms associated with virus-induced common colds and other respiratory complications are the result of the increased levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines, rather than direct effects of virus replication.2 This is where the use of Echinacea becomes important in the healing of respiratory infections.
There have been numerous studies demonstrating the immune modulatory properties of Echinacea.3-9
is a decongestant herb with a robust mucolytic action, used to relieve respiratory mucus, nasal congestion and catarrh of the respiratory tract. Horseradish contains mustard oils that irritate mucous membranes, effectively alleviating excessive accumulation of mucus. In the clinical setting, horseradish has been demonstrated as having antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory Horseradish extract10 effects on the respiratory tract. Allyl isothiocyanate, a constituent of horseradish, is a potent antimicrobial11,12 that may be effective in treating influenza, respiratory tract infections, and sinus inflammation.
Also known as kren or krenweiberl, horseradish has a long history of medicinal use in parts of Austria and Bavaria in fighting a variety of conditions including influenza, respiratory ailments, and scurvy, due to its high vitamin C content. The flavonoids in horseradish make this herb an antioxidant powerhouse.13
is an important water-soluble vitamin which therefore cannot be stored in sufficient levels in the body. Well known for its ability to fight colds and flu, vitamin C is also used to lower, balance and maintain healthy blood histamine levels. Individuals with low vitamin C levels may therefore experience more intense symptoms of allergic rhinitis. L-ascorbic acid (vitamin C)
Vitamin C has well-documented beneficial effects on the immune system14 and is an essential biological antioxidant used to ameliorate a wide variety of infections. In addition, vitamin C prolongs the survival of immune cells that fight against invading viruses.
According to test results15 there’s up to 100 times more vitamin C in our white blood cells than in the plasma (fluid component) of our blood.
Vitamin C reduces the severity of cold symptoms, is an antiviral,16 and a review published in the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials in 2000 revealed that vitamin C reduces the severity and duration of cold symptoms.17
The overwhelmingly positive body of evidence relating to the immune support benefits of vitamin C and its role in the nutritional management of the common cold cannot be ignored.
Zinc is an important mineral found in almost every cell in the human body and is very well absorbed in gluconate form. Zinc has been shown to reduce the duration of common colds with decreased symptom severity. It is of key importance in many biological processes, such as the promotion in the activity of about 100 enzymes. Deficiency in zinc is often associated with an increased risk of infection. Zinc may interfere with rhinovirus adhesion, protecting plasma membranes from microbial toxins. Zinc increase immunity against several viruses and may even interfere with the replication of certain viruses.
3 is natural vitamin D, which is identical to the vitamin D our body makes naturally from sunlight. Vitamin D3 is much better absorbed than vitamin D, making it approximately 87% more effective in raising and maintaining blood levels of vitamin D. Vit D
Vitamin D is vitally important for the proper functioning and strengthening of the immune system. Acute respiratory tract infections were responsible for approximately 2.38 million deaths worldwide in 2016. A wealth of mechanistic and clinical data show that vitamin D plays a critical (and complex) role in supporting the immune system. There are vitamin D receptors and activating enzymes on the surfaces of all white blood cells.
Inadequate and low intake and status of vitamin D is widespread, leading to a decrease in resistance to infections and as a consequence, associated with frequent colds and flu. In 2017, analyses of prospective clinical trials showed that taking vitamin D reduces the odds of developing a respiratory infection by approximately 42% in people with low baseline levels vitamin D.
