The function of echinacea extract
Echinaceas main active ingredient, polyphenols, caffeic acid derivatives and polysaccharides have the following functions:
1 immune stimulation
Inulin: by increasing the number of granulocytes and white blood cells play a role in enhancing monocyte chemotaxis and neutral virus generated bacteriolysis.
Polysaccharide: T lymphocytes and macrophages of the immune hydrocarbon receptor stimulation can increase the phagocytic activity of macrophages, and stimulate macrophages increased tumor necrosis factor, interferon, interleukin-number number can destruction of tumor cells.
Alkyl amines and caffeic acid derivatives: lipophilic alkyl amines can increase macrophage phagocytosis.
Echinacea: improving non-specific T cells to produce interferon, promote the secretion of lymphocytes, reducing the T-helper cells, decreased T-helper cells and suppressor ratio.
2 organizational renewal and anti-inflammatory effects
Inhibition of hyaluronidase (hyaluronidase), can stimulate fibroblast growth and synthesis of the enzyme glucosamine to produce ketones cortex role in promoting the secretion of adrenal hormones. Polysaccharides have anti-inflammatory effect.
3 antibacterial
Echinacea purpurea glycosides and caffeic acid derivatives have weak antibacterial activity.
4 antiviral
Can inhibit influenza, herpes virus, and foaming, anti-viral activity due to inhibition of hyaluronidase, can hinder the cell surface virus receptor.
5 toxicity
Ken lead to excessive amount of low grade fever, dermatitis may occur in sensitive persons.
