Make these part of your daily routine to support immunity as we head into cold and flu season.
Research shows that this trio may help support gut and immune health. What are they? And how do they work? Here, we’ll break down the different “biotics.”
Echinacea is a coneflower used to increase the number of white blood cells. Among the three most popular types of echinacea, David Winston, RH (AHG), a registered herbalist, recommends taking the strongest, Echinacea angustifolia, alone or in combination with Echinacea purpurea and/or Echinacea pallida. Like andrographis, echinacea stimulates the immune system, but in a different way. The key when taking echinacea is to make sure that you get the correct dose. "There are good German studies," says Winston, "showing that if you drop below a certain threshold of the dose, it just doesn't work."
