Brown Yellow Powder

Main Function

The main active ingredients of Echinacea, polyphenols, caffeic acid derivatives and polysaccharides have the following functions:

1.Immunostimulatory effect

Inulin: By increasing the number of granulocytes and leukocytes, it increases the chemotaxis of monocytes and neutral viruses and produces bacteriolysis.

Polysaccharides: T lymphocytes and hydrocarbon receptors on the surface of macrophages produce immunostimulatory effects, which can increase the phagocytic capacity of macrophages and stimulate macrophages to increase the number of tumor necrosis factor, interferon, and leukocyte mediators. Destroy tumor cells.

Alkylamines and caffeic acid derivatives: lipophilic alkylamines increase macrophage phagocytosis.

Echinacea: increase the activity of non-specific T cells, produce interferon, promote lymphocyte secretion, reduce T-helper cells, and reduce the ratio of T-helper cells to inhibitory factors.

2. Tissue renewal and anti-infection

Inhibition of hyaluronidase (hyaluronidase) can stimulate the growth of fibroblasts and the synthesis of glucosamine, produce corticosterone and promote the secretion of adrenocortical hormone. Polysaccharides have an anti-infective effect.

3. Antibacterial effect

Echinacea and caffeic acid derivatives have weak antibacterial activity.

4. Antiviral effect

It can inhibit influenza, herpes and foaming viruses. The antiviral activity is attributed to the inhibition of hyaluronidase and can block the viral receptors on the cell surface.

5. Toxic side reactions

Excessive dosage will lead to low fever, and dermatitis may occur in sensitive people. Scope of application:

Echinacea and its extracts for common infections or wounds, colds or flu, rosary virus, candiditis, staphylococcal infection, urinary tract infections, pelvic inflammation (PID), tonsil inflammation, upper respiratory tract infections, wound inflammation, toothache Or oral infections, mosquitoes, animal or snake bites, blood food poisoning, lice, abscesses, eczema, etc. Improve sore throat caused by acute and chronic pharyngitis, dry and hot, hoarseness; strengthen the immune system, prevent flu, shorten colds, reduce sore throat, mild infection, cold, cough, flu and other upper respiratory symptoms .

Pharmacological Action

Hypoglycemic, lipid-lowering, anti-allergic, anti-allergic, uric acid-lowering, cichoric acid can inhibit hyaluronidase and HIV-1 integrase, and has cell phagocytosis and antiviral activity in vitro and in vivo.

The polysaccharides and caffeic acid derivatives of polyphenols in this product can enhance the body immunity by increasing granulocyte and leukocytes and enhancing T cell activity and phagocytic ability of macrophages, inhibiting the growth of adrenal cortex hormones by inhibition of hyaluronidase. Influenza, herpes, and antibacterial and anti-infective effects. Can be used for a variety of diseases such as influenza, traumatic infections.
