The Echinacea plant contains several bioactive compounds such as phenolic acids, rosmarinic acid, polyacetylenes, caffeic acid, and many other chemical compounds that help contribute to a healthy life. Echinacea is also linked with several health benefits such as boosting immunity and suppressing oxidative stress. Indigenous Americans were using Echinacea nearly past 400 years as herbal medicine to treat infections, wounds and as a general "cure all."
Zinc is a microelement utilized by the human body to build up a healthy immune system. This trace element plays a major role in cell division, the growth of divided cells, and helps in the activation of more than 300 enzymes in the human body. Apart from this, zinc is found to be an essential component in collagen synthesis.
How Echinacea supports immune system?
Echinacea works as an immunomodulator or immunostimulator.1 Immunomodulators are specific types of chemical compounds which alter the immune response by triggering antibody formation or suppressing the white blood cell activities. This plant contains a good amount of alkylamides or alkamides, which are known as immunomodulators and have a positive effect on improving immune system functionality.2
Research studies suggest that alkamides have a potential to reduce anxiety in mice and human subjects.3,4 Several research articles indicate that Echinacea extract contains various active substances. These compounds have the ability to influence the signaling pathways of epithelial cells and block virus/bacterium-induced secretion of cytokines/chemokines and other inflammatory mediators. 5-7
Role of Zinc in Human body?
Zinc is the second important trace element after iron. The body requires zinc for various physiological functions. Zinc regulates the activity of more than 300 enzymes that activate metabolism, digestion and nerve function. This trace element is crucial for the development and function of immune cells. It also helps in reducing oxidative stress—a major reason behind a wide array of chronic health issues and aging.
In a research study, 40 older adults were supplemented with 45 mg of zinc daily experienced healthier inflammatory response than the control group.8 Zinc is added to Echinacea extract to make it more powerful as this microelement plays a vital role in supporting a healthy immune system.
